POLICE ACTION OVER THE TOP
WHAT an absolutely marvellous use of police powers and police resources to fully prosecute a citizen for merely having one shotgun cartridge idle in a house (Comment News, October 10).
And to think that a less officious officer might have exercised discretionary powers just to issue a caution for something so innocuous.
Police didn’t have to charge the woman at all, so they must have been really struggling to justify a search! ALF CAMPBELL, Kenwick
ADDING BALANCE PEOPLE study the ecology.
They study plants, trees and animals to observe the habitat suitable for them.
They observe the propagation of plants and trees, with the general dependence on insects and birds for this.
Animals follow that which is instinctive to their nature for the propagation and rearing of their young. They follow their “order of being”.
What about us human beings and our nature? What is our “order of being”? We are male and female, complementing one another, each with our own different way of loving, thinking and acting.
When a man and a woman marry, they benefit from this complementary action, and likewise the children they bring into the world. It helps bring a balance to their lives. JANNETTE PETERS, Roleystone
