Columnist unfairly swipes at police

Johnny Edwards' verbal slam of the Athens-Clarke County Police Department in the City Core column May 10 was extraordinarily insensitive and inappropriate.

Mr. Edwards should be ashamed of himself for letting his personal resentment over what he calls "superfluous citations" lead to his unprofessional disparagement of those working hard to solve a tragic multiple homicide.

Satire is a difficult target to hit, and Mr. Edwards completely missed the mark with his blurb. He would do well to be more careful as he -- or if he -- continues with this column.
