Hire the Best As State Police

Editor, News-Register:

A recent news article indicated that the West Virginia State Police are seeking new officers and that they are emphasizing more minority hiring.

I believe that the proper course would be to emphasize the best qualified person regardless of ethnicity or sex.

The prosecutor in the Zimmerman case has been indicted for falsifying information and omitting details that would be in Zimmerman’s favor. This is what happens when politicians try to be police officers. The police felt that there was insufficient proof to warrant an arrest, but the politicos pressured the authorities and a jury concluded that the police were correct.

Now we have the “president” suffering from foot and mouth disease just like he did in the Virginia case a few years ago. He even made the statement that he could have been Trayvon. (These remarks come from a man born with a silver spoon in his mouth.)
