People should trump image

Dear Editor:In light of all the criticism that has been hurled against the Aspen police due to the recent drug roundup, I must commend the officers who participated in the roundup for a job well done. Your actions have created quite a stir. Addicts commonly lash out when their addiction is challenged. Criticizing how the bust went down is awfully close to condoning the use of drugs which is a foolish endorsement. If we cared about the people of our town more then upholding our liberal cool image, this criticism would not happen. Sober up! Mark KwiecienskiBasalt
