Re: “Mailbag

I have an issue that is not related to the letters above, but I've been itching to send a letter and see how many people have similar feelings. I find the elaborate memorial services for police officers at tax payer expense to be appalling. I see my son's elementary school struggling to get funds for basic academic needs, books, supplies, repairs, etc. Homeless shelters and soap kitchens losing funding and the list goes on and on. There is never enough money for any social or educational entity, but we spend crazy money on memorializing a police officer . Don't get me wrong, I think it is tragic that anyone loses their life. My heart breaks for the families and friends. Police officers know what they are getting into when they sign up. The last officer Eric Hite, didn't save people from a burning building or rescue a hostige. He was doing his job and was tragically shot. That in my opinion, doesn't make him a hero. The teacher who stays after school to tutor on her own time is a hero, the parents who sacrifice so their children can have a good life are heros, the fireman who really saves lives daily is a hero. I know this opinion won't be popular, but it is the truth. Every life has value. The homeless man that is betten to death for a cigarette; his life is no less valuable than the policeman who was shot at work. I don't remember seeing any 21 gun salute for the poor homeless man.
