Letter: Watson’s ‘Blue Lives’ column insults officers, their families

I have never felt the need to reach for the hand sanitizer after reading an article in the News until Rod Watson’s Feb. 7 commentary, “ ‘Blue Lives’ flag should come down.” His comments reflect total disregard or more correctly contempt for the men and women who are sworn to protect us.

The Blue Lives matters flag represents those who we ask to protect us, and their need to be seen as caring professionals with lives and families of their own. Watson seems to forget this in his ridiculous, incendiary tirade. It is readily apparent that Watson’s only goal is to throw gasoline on the fire instead of water.
