I read the opinion (editorial, 11-12) about the police procession for Seattle Police Officer Brenton and was absolutely disgusted. What a slap in the face to all public servants. I don’t know why the military doesn’t have processions, but those young men and women deserve it and I would never complain if they closed down Interstate 5 or the roads around Fort Lewis for a few hours to pay respect to those who have died serving our country.
Most of the time, police endure negative stories about them in the media, always being second guessed and made to look like animals. Officer Brenton was murdered serving the citizens. Show some respect. (Lund is a police officer.)
