Shame on The Mirror for cop killer coverage | Federal Way letters

Shame on you, Federal Way Mirror.

Was it really necessary, was it really newsworthy, was it in the best interest of our — excuse me, your community interest to make a front-page effort to associate a deranged cop killer to our community ("Cop killer Clemmons had business ties to Federal Way," Dec. 12)?

Is it not bad enough that Federal Way struggles with a low reputation in the Puget Sound community that you, our very own local paper, have to drag us down? So yes, three to four years ago, this animal lived in our community, ran a business here. That is a fact. So now when we tuck our children in at night, we can tell them about the cop killer that lived down the street from us years ago, and wish them sweet dreams. Is that what you tell your children every night? Shame on you!

Kerry Moore, Federal Way
