Wednesday's Letters to the Editor

<b>Redefining peeking</b>

EDITOR: Silly me, I had always thought that "peeking" meant looking inside someone's residence, not ripping a window screen and sticking an arm through the blinds ("Carrillo to be charged with peeking," Friday). I am glad the state Attorney General's Office was able to correct this mistaken assumption on my part and provide me with the proper perspective.

<b>Flawed protocol</b>

EDITOR: The tragic death of Andy Lopez brings up other sad memories.

Jeremiah Chass, a 16-year-old fatally shot by deputies when his family called for help because he was psychotic and out of control; he may have been holding a knife.

Richard DeSantis, shot unarmed as he charged several officers in a bipolar episode.

Kuan Chung Kao, shot to death as he waved a broomstick at the police outside his Rohnert Park home.

How many others?
