LETTER: Playing in the park

  • Tuesday, August 5, 2014

I just read the story of the arrest of Debra Harrell for letting her child play unattended in a park. I would bet that there is not one person on the police force or on your city council who has not played in a park more than once unattended. Any police reason for this action is truly nonsense and is to cover their embarrassment for this small minded action. This whole matter shows a lack of judgement by the authorities and submits your town to undeserved derision. Much ado about nothing.
