Good work by deputies sub­du­ing armed man

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OPINION -

Dear Ed­i­tor: Read­ing “Columbia County deputies taser armed man in Green­port,” Oct. 5, 2016, makes you ap­pre­ci­ate law en­force­ment who ap­pro­pri­ately re­act to a po­ten­tially dan­ger­ous sit­u­a­tion.

In to­day’s so­ci­ety, when it seems you all-too-of­ten read sto­ries about pub­lic ser­vants whose over­re­ac­tions lead to death, see­ing that some of our lo­cal peace keep­ers are us­ing the least dam­ag­ing and dan­ger­ous tools to con­trol a sus­pect is the def­i­ni­tion of how em­ploy­ees that are paid by the peo­ple should work.

Thank you re­spond­ing Columbia County sher­iff’s deputies. Adam Kudlo Ker­honk­son
