Pubdate: Fri, 20 Jan 2012 Source: Standard-Examiner (UT) Copyright: 2012 Ogden Publishing Corporation Contact: http://www.standard.net/ Details: http://www.mapinc.org/media/421 Author: Larry Sturdevant WRITER DISCREDITS OUR OFFICERS Editor, This letter is in response to the letter to the editor in the Standard-Examiner Friday, January 20, "Home invader may shout: 'Police!'" How dare the writer discredit officer Jared Francom who gave his life protecting the citizens of our city. To say he did not die for a noble cause demonstrates the writer's lack of knowledge of what is going on in our society today. His solution is to re-legalize all drugs? I don't know what rock he crawled out from under. Is growing marijuana legal in Mesa, Arizona? How inconsiderate the writer is to make such an outlandish statement in a time of loss for the officer's family and for those of us in Ogden who appreciate what he gave for us.
