President Neri to Bucks County Courier Times

Dear Editor:

Executive Editor Patricia S. Meagher-Walker cannot have it both ways.

To print a deplorable cartoon having African American children ask Santa Claus to protect them from the police, and then say your paper supports law enforcement reveals your hypocrisy.

And let's be honest, while you maintain your editorial page "is a forum for opinions, even controversial ones," we certainly know there are plenty of important issues you don't allow to be printed.

To run this cartoon shows how truly cartoonish your editorial page has become.

Law enforcement deserves better. Bucks County deserves better.

Les Neri, President
Fraternal Order of Police, PA State Lodge
