Police lives matter, too

Re “Hear the cries of injustice,” letter to the editor, Dec. 19:

Yes, black lives matter, but so do the lives of our police. Conventual Franciscan Father Paul Gawlowski and parishioners of St. Paul of the Shipwreck Parish should be mindful of the grand jury outcome of Michael Brown’s killing. Witnesses testified he charged the cop, not with his arms up saying don’t shoot, but in a manner that would have harmed the policeman. Our leaders, President Obama, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, Father Gawlowski and others are charged to bring the races together and not ignite divisions between the people of the United States. This type of behavior drives Catholics away from the church they love and does not pass on the word of God.
