Number who gave their
lives dwarf ‘criminal cops’
Re: “California’s Criminal Cops” (Page A1, Nov. 11):
I don’t condone criminal activity by a police officer, but if it happened and justice was served, they should be punished accordingly. Police, like our politicians, are not above the law.
Your front-page picture and pages on “Criminal Cops” was insulting to nearly 79,000 officers that serve our state. You taking less than 1% going back 10 years sheds a negative light over all police officers that put their lives on the line.
These officers have families they want to go home to. There’s no guarantee that will happen. The 1% of “criminal cops” is minute compared to the number of officers who gave their lives protecting the public.

Why don’t you go back 10 years from today, do some investigative reporting about these honorable officers and how their families are coping with their loss today? They deserve nothing less as well.
