I was appalled when I read the article of alleged excessive force (Thursday, Page 1A) by three Walworth County deputies.
Why in the world are their pay rates in this article? What does that have to do with the subject at hand? What are you trying to suggest?
Your article, in my opinion, read like you were convicting these officers of an abuse of power in spite of the facts. If you are going to report news, please do your homework and follow ethical guidelines. We don't need our law enforcement arbitrarily tried and convicted in your newspaper, which is how this appeared to me.
There are legitimate complaints at times with law enforcement. That does not mean, though, that all actions by officers are suspect. I'm really disgusted with the job you did on this article and feel you should retract/redo your reporting.
