Courier-Gazette Letters to the Editor, Dec. 7

Columnist missed the mark

Reade Brower, I am quite surprised at your article entitled, "The case of the missing principal and ego." [Courier-Gazette, Nov. 30]

Let's start with the basic legal requirements of any "personnel issue" that faces just about any public organization from towns, counties, states, schools and so on. The issue here is not to create a public circus of doubt and secrecy, but to protect the rights (which is paramount to our Constitution) of those involved in a situation that is, by law, classified as a "personnel issue." Clearly defined and for eons has created so much frustration by most of us as to who, what, where and when to satisfy our curiosity and cover up all those "holes" left with the lack of details not forthcoming as we would like them to.

Situations that are of such horrific nature as to cause either bodily or mental anguish and harm to any individual is not to be tolerated. Most of us, out of curiosity, are in a rush to get the details, sometimes even before the appropriate investigation is concluded. That investigation should include the total picture and will reveal the details if done with integrity and within legal restructions. No stone unturned and all treated with respect and without bias.
