Letter: Guilty until proven innocent
I moved away from New Hampshire about 20 years ago, and I come back three or four times a year. I have watched as my home state went from a very civilized, safe place to live to a very rigid, angry place.
The lead headline in the Aug. 16 Monitor read “Police kill man amid drug sting.” Do you really want to live in a place where the police shoot suspects rather then allow them to be free until proven guilty? The next time they are dressed as gangsters and knock down a door and charge through a home with shotguns and automatic weapons, it could be the wrong address. It could be your home. Get involved. There are other ways that are more effective to deal with drug abuse.
