Letter to the editor: Facebook posts on MUMS case were ‘intemperate’

I note the article “Man in MUMS Case Seeks Return of Guns” in the Jan. 10 issue of your fine paper and the intemperate, and to me, unbelievable comments on the Middlebury Police Department Facebook page by critics of the department’s action. One need only look at AinsleighJohnson’s heart-rending letter to the editor in the same issue to see the impact that school shootings have already had on our young people. We can all be grateful that the quick action by a concerned student and the quick reaction by our police department averted a local tragedy.
It is likely that the gun owner was inconvenienced by the removal of his guns but he should be grateful that his guns were removed as a safety precaution. How can anyone compare this inconvenience with the lives of MUMS students!
I support Chief Hanley’s action and hope that others will speak out via Facebook and in person to let him know that we support his decision.
