Remember when?

Dear Editor:

Back in the early ’70s, an Aspen police officer on patrol downtown shot out a streetlight with his service weapon. As I recall the news item, he was fired on the spot and told to be moved out of his apartment and be out of town by sunup or face charges of reckless endangerment and more.
