Cottage Grove police behavior should be focus

Dear Editor: 

I'm writing as a concerned citizen. Thank you for covering the police beating near Main Street. I know it takes courage to cover a controversial topic as some in our town threaten others for even speaking of it.

I'm writing however because the article does not do the situation justice.

You open and close (and pepper throughout) the article with a discussion of mental health. Many people are using the mental health of the victim to distract from the issue of police brutality. The issue is not that . . .
