~--Tbe Malskoff News, Thursday, July 3, 1980 P. O. Box 509 Malakoff, Texas 75148 " To the Editor: It has been my pleasure to serve with the Support Your Local Police Commit tee in Dallas County in one capacity or i' the other for the past several years. It is because I truly have a tremendous amount of respect for our men in blue-- most of whom put their lives on the line each time they stop an automobile or intervene in a domestic right, or have to patrol in very dangerous areas of cities where the police are not welcome. A few days ago in Caney City a young seventeen year old boy was allegedly shot and killed by a law enforcement of- ricer whom it would be very easy for me todisrespect. Every policeman who has heard this sordid story that happened in a Caney City joint should in their hearts detest such overreaction and "Wild Bill Hickock"-type attitude by a person who probably never should have put on a tmiform. There is nothing the youngster i could have done that merited his being shot in the hack while fleeing just a short distance from the police officer. The official report reveals that the police officer said "I told him to halt and I meant for him to stop." What a terrible black eye this inefficient, irresponsible individual has given police in the surrounding area. A second party must share the respon- ' sibility for this unnecessary shooting. I refer to the Coney City city council. Since the inception oI "that city they have run through numerous police of- ricers. In my opinion it is a city council who knows nothing about governing a city. Mark my word, Caney City is soon to become a sore spot of Malakoff. There will be more killings, bringing grief to some of our local residents. Caney City has overnight ruined the good record that we black people in this St. Paul community established over the years. Twenty years ago there had never been a person at St. Paul convic- ted of a felony. Everybody owned his own home, everybody worked, everybody was poor but honorable. Those native black citizens of St. Paul and those persons who came from Dallas and other cities seeking a peaceful retirement deserve much more from their city council and law enforcement officials. Clay Smothers State Representative Clay Smothers is a co-administrator of St. Paul In- dustrial Training School which is located in Caney City Dear Mr. Hardy, Thank you very much for the 10 speed bicycle that I won at your drug store. I'm so glad I won it. I needed a new bicycle. You have a neat store. Your Friend, Jeff Spivey Malakoff from page one His family is enjoying living in a rural area of Texas, he said. Lucy loves it in the country. Valarie, whom Case described as a "delicate flower," is having a little difficulty coping with the record breaking summer heat, but also enjoys lake living. Charlie Nelson, Cecil Beaver, and a couple known only as Larry and Louise will soon see themselves portrayed in a western setting over 100 years ago. They should be anxious for the com- pletion and publication of Case's next novel. f Letters to editor To be eomidered for publication in the Letters to the Editor column an article must be oril~inal. not over 300 words and signed by the writer. The Malakoff Newu reserves the right to edit all letters. If deemed derrogatory, libelous, tin. clear or for some other reason unprintable and it is not possible or practical to edit so it will meet standard for publication, we will not be able to use it. The name of the writer will be published along with the letter. We feel that a letter has little meaning if published anonymously, If there is something you feel should be brought to the atten. tion of readers but you don't want to have your name tied to it, let us have the information and we will look into it from a news angle, We feel that the Letters to the Editor column is the very finest medium available in this com- munity for expression of personal views on matters of concern. We urge use of the column in a constructive manner, inviting those with views on any subject of interest to share them with our readers.
