The irony of it all

Denise Bennett

I find it ironical Philip Egan used serial rapist Brent Brents as an example in his Feb. 23 letter to the editor describing his disgust about the lack of public support for the police and their policies.

According to recent news reports, police protocol regarding Brent Brents was to release him, resulting in his freedom to rape again.

If the public doesn’t call to attention mistakes in police procedure, who will? Hopefully the brave men and women who choose to serve are brave enough to face their mistakes, learn and move on.
