LETTER: Resistance forced Texas officer’s hand

To the editor:

Those young people in Texas who were where they shouldn’t have been and didn’t leave when they were told to leave should have had their butts beat when they got home.

Yes, the cop was too rough with the young girl, but if she had left when she was told to and got on the ground when she was told to, the cop would not have had to touch her.

All I want to say is I hope and pray that our people are smarter than the ones in Texas and Baltimore. But I guess we will see in July.
