LETTERS: One to blame for tragedy

Editor:

Re: Victim’s sister doesn’t blame officer, Feb. 13.

My heart bleeds for Lynné McCutcheon and her family, as well as for the victim, Marilyn Laursen.

Let’s put the blame fair and square where it lies – on driver Kyle Danyliuk. Danyliuk should have stopped when told to by Const. David Bickle, but he did not.

I most passionately disagree with the people that are using the officer as a scapegoat in this stupidly politically correct society that we have developed for ourselves.

I take my hat off to McCutcheon for her sanity and logic in this case. After all, who was driving the car that killed Laursen? Definitely not Const. Bickle.
