APD should be commended

Dear Editor:

Police officers risk their lives to keep the public safe. Does anyone know how many peace officers have been shot and killed this year? Way too many!

A woman who blows .232 BAC is driving a loaded gun weighing thousands of pounds, capable of killing another innocent driver/passengers in a split second and not even realize she did it. Officer Gregory Cole, your chief, and fellow officers, I commend you all for your service.

To any of the naysayers: It could have been your family! Ever been to a DUI crash? Next time you insult police officers with your idiot opinions, think twice. Cops are performing a duty to serve and protect.
