Letter To The Editor: Perilous Confusion About Police

DAVID NORTH
Los Alamos

The Los Alamos Daily Post should be commended for the fair and thorough coverage of the LWV Forum incident involving Sheriff Lucero and John Horne. Unfortunately in so doing, a potential for perilous confusion was created.

Most often when someone needs help or suspects illegal activity, citizens will call 911. However, after reading your story more than one Los Alamos resident has learned that if you really want quick, decisive, overwhelming action – even if it’s just something that sort of bugs you – the most certain way to handle it is to call Jaret McDonald.
