Protests

Protests

To the Editor: I am very much in favor of a protest provided it is non-violent.  Protest is just a way of showing displeasure with certain actions by government, industry and individuals. I certainly don’t support mobs that create damage to persons or property.  Unfortunately, protests are sometimes conducted by people who ignore facts or […]

Letter writer could not be more wrong

To the Editor: Thank you, Martin Doerfler, for your thoughtful and well researched letter concerning the Mike Brown shooting in Ferguson, Mo.—not! I recognize that you are entitled to your opinion (opinions are like belly buttons—everybody has one), but when you ignore facts and actual evidence to further your social justice agenda, you don’t contribute […]

Get back to true meaning of holiday

Get back to true meaning of holiday

To the Editor: What is Christmas all about and why do we celebrate it? In Bethlehem, a baby was born and his name was Jesus and his mother was Mary. There were shepherds, men had come to see Him. Also, wisemen traveled a long distance to bring gifts and to worship Him. That should tell […]

Telling the truth doesn’t make one a racist

Telling the truth doesn’t make one  a racist

To the Editor: Kudos to Bill Quinn and Gene McIntyre for their remarks on the Ferguson, Mo.  protests in the Keizertimes in the Nov. 5 issue. They studied the facts and addressed them candidly and honestly. I suspect some will label them racist, when they simply stated the facts. Meanwhile, across the country, thousands haven’t […]

Law enforcement

Law enforcement

To the Editor: If people of all colors would obey lawful commands of law-enforcement officers they would not be subjected to any kind of harsh treatment. It seems to me that these people have attitude problems or suffer from mental problems. They may even feel they are entitled. Sure, there are some cops that have […]
