Re “Sheriff’s deputy is gone, but his lawsuit lives on” (Front page, Nov. 20): I am appalled by the lack of judgment in running Sunday’s article regarding the lawsuit involving Deputy Dennis Wallace. At a time when we should all be reflecting on and remembering all of his contributions to our community, the best you could do to honor him was to bring up that. Really? I am stumped by the lack of respect for Officer Wallace’s memory and for the department he served. I can’t decide if it was a back-handed insult to the sheriff’s department or a tragically missed opportunity to discuss the effects of drugs on innocent people. If something doesn’t pass the, “is it kind, true, and necessary” rule of thumb, maybe you shouldn’t print it.
