Letter to the editor: Aghast at letter

Posted
 
I am a resident of Golden and as I was perusing the Transcript today, I happened upon the Voices page. I read the Letter to the Editor written by Russ Haas and I am totally aghast. Shame on you both for publishing this seriously flawed and very appalling letter. While I am certain some citizens of Golden share his view, most of us do not! Comparing a long past trial based on the “flimsiest of evidence” to the 9 minute and 29 second video that clearly showed the murder of George Floyd is factually inaccurate. Derek Chauvin was convicted of this crime by a preponderance of the evidence, including many fellow police officers who called his actions wrong and testified against him. By suggesting (without any evidence) that the jury was somehow influenced to find Mr.Chauvinguilty because BLM protesters would “assassinate” them is abhorrent and it is a vile stretch of Mr Haas’ imagination. What possessed you to publish this letter? You should apologize to all of your readers and to me for deciding to run it.
