Protecting the public

Dear Editor:Rather than facing a disciplinary hearing, Deputy Gibson should be getting a commendation for attempting to shoot out the tires of the meth-crazed car thief. We’re lucky that this armed felon didn’t kill or injure anyone except himself during this entire episode. This maniac clearly represented an “imminent threat” to everyone in his path and we should be thankful to all those officers who put themselves in harm’s way to protect us.Nice shot!Bob GuionSnowmass
