I would like to respond to the letter from Rich Andrews published on the yourvalley.net website, June 9.
Mr. Andrews blames former President Barack Obama for the “war on police.”
That’s funny, when I was watching the events of Jan, 6, at the Capitol, I never realized that “Obama” was spelled “T-R-U-M-P,” because that is the name on the clothing of those who were beating our brave Capitol police olfficers with “Blue Lives Matter” flag poles and “Trump” banners, while using bear spray and other chemical irritants on them.
I suggest if Mr. Andrews is looking for who is prosecuting the “war on the police,” he look no further than the Trump supporters and other seditionists who were gleefully beating those brave police officers on Jan. 6. I think all of us who saw that disgusting footage know who the “potentially dangerous wackos” really are.
