Silverton shooting investigation

To the Editor:

I found myself more than a little upset after reading the article in the March 1st edition of the Keizer times, titled KPD leads Silverton Investigation.

In the article, Mr. Jimmie Eugene Hickey was described as a victim. This man was anything other than a victim. He was an attempted murderer, a possible mentally deranged person. A lone gunman who was attempting to shoot unarmed citizens and the responding police officers, but he was not a victim.

I understand this may have been an honest mistake in the wording of the article by its author, but it’s things like these that give readers a pause to think that those who make claim of a liberal bias in the press, might just have a legitimate complaint.
