By Los Alamos Resident
 
To the police officer who pulled me over by the tree at the golf course ... thanks for offering a word of safety advice to me instead of finding a way to write a ticket.

I know that police around the country have been shown in a bad light recently, but there are still some looking out for the safety of the civilians.

While I don't agree with everything the police do in Los Alamos, I have more appreciation after last night.
