Paul Holliday (Your Views, June 25) made some inappropriate, snide remarks concerning Moore police officers, calling them “thugs with badges” and “so–called peace officers” and “rogue.” Holliday suggests they should have their badges taken away and never be allowed to serve as police officers. Holliday bases this rant on a video that thousands of us have seen. I saw it, too, but I saw it differently than Holliday. It appeared to me that Luis Rodriguez was resisting arrest.
Does Holliday think these officers should have played patty-cake with Rodriguez? If my memory serves correctly, Rodriguez died because of a health problem, not as a result of the actions of the officers involved.
