I could not find one single newsworthy statement in the June 16 article on inmate Richard Poplawski’s first public interview ("Poplawski Complains of His Treatment in Jail").
Not one single thing worth printing.
He says he’s been denied access to almost everything — and that his behavior has been very good. I believe his behavior was that of a vicious rabid animal and he should be treated as such for as long as he is left breathing.
But I am certain the people working in the prison are doing their jobs well. They know justice will be served and this prisoner will be living under these same conditions every day, forever. Heck, you could have interviewed any random prisoner with the same complaints and written a useless article about them. They are in prison — what do we expect they would do?
The families and friends of each of the officers whose lives he took have been denied every single minute of every single day with our loved one. That is suffering. That is our reality.
He made his life what it is today. Let him deal with the reality of his worthless life in private. We do not care. And we have no desire to see his disgusting face pictured next to the worthless article.
I have no respect for a newspaper that prints stories without purpose or substance or that do not contain one single thing worth printing.
The letter writer is the cousin of slain Officer Paul Sciullo.
