Didn’t mean to embarrass the officer
RE: Police and the public
I just read the letters to the editor in a recent Spectator pertaining to the feelings of some of the police members toward public attitudes.
Last year, while attending the James Street Crawl, while checking out the booths there, I came upon a young officer leaning against the armoury wall. In my attempt at humour, I asked him if he was holding up the wall. My intent was not to berate him, but simply to make a connection and say hello. I should have just said hello and left it at that, but when thinking about my comment and looking back he was gone.
I have felt guilty about the situation since that time and just wish to make my apology to the officer and to point out that many of us appreciate the police presence and thank them for their service. Donna Herman, Mount Hope
