Olympia Seems like someone jumped to a conclusion

LaceyDecember 29, 2013 

S unday’s letter from Luke Mattheis really frosted me. His insinuation that two Olympia policemen were harassing “a fellow who looked down on his luck...(homeless)...who said, ‘I wasn’t even doing anything.’ ” Do you really think Olympia police are that mean-spirited or have that much time on their hands? The Olympia Police Department is way short of police to “protect and serve” our community. Why don’t you ride with one of them some night and get the real picture? Or you could take one of those honest “down on his luck” into your house...or call one of them for help instead of 911 the next time you need help!

The Olympian is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
