Reader: Denver cops may not be able to protect you if they're always looking over their shoulder

Patricia Calhoun's post about Denver Police retirees urging Michael Hancock to hire a "fair" Manager of Safety drew a strong post from a member of the force. He sees the decision as impacting the public in ways the average resident may not have considered.

As a Denver citizen and one who is out nightly protecting and serving (even you), my suggestion to you cop bashers is prepare for what you ask. The next criminal contact possibly with you or god forbid your loved ones, may be with one of the criminal element that would have been contacted and arrested had the officers felt that their protective action not result in biased discipline. Good luck to you.
