LINDQUIST: Deputies' guild supports recall drive

Re: "TNT trying to shape readers’ opinions" (letter, 8-20).

The writer criticizes The News Tribune for having “jumped the shark” in its coverage of Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist.

He opines:

“The TNT has been covering the Lindquist story ad nauseam, redundantly reporting the same facts over and over again highlighted with bold-print headlines.”

Here is a new fact: The Pierce County Deputy Sheriff’s Independent Guild endorsed the recall of Lindquist on Aug. 11. The endorsement of the largest law enforcement union local in Pierce County sends a powerful message to the community about the gravity of Lindquist’s misfeasance in office.
