Reader threatens paper for not printing letters

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, June 24, 2015

Dear editor:

I’m real disappointed in you all. I have written about three times and sent these letters to you all to put in the paper because these letters were very important. But nothing was put in the paper. There was no excuse why not. These were about your mom on Mother’s Day. Nothing. The other one was about this past weekend about our Veterans Day of those who were killed in the line of duty. You see I’m a memory (sic) of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, Respect & Honor. Remember, this include Florala of those who were killed in the line of duty doing their job.

A total of 1,501 law enforcement officers died in the line of duty during the past 10 years an average of one death ever 58 hours of 150 per year. There were 100 law enforcement officers killed in 2013.

And this is the way they are repaid not printing my letter in the paper telling how I feel about them. They are out there fighting for us and this is they are repaid for losing their lives to help us all.

So if this letter is not still put in the paper next week, I will stop my paper and you all will send me the rest of my money back.

You see the paper was real this Friday. So just do what you wanna to. If you all don’t go and put this letter in the paper, I will drop it in a heart beat.

The one of Mother was not put in the paper also. This is your mom. I hope all of you love your mom. My mom has been gone three years and I love her very much. I also have a copy of this.
