Should Immediately Indict …

RECEIVED Wed., April 18, 2012

Dear Editor,
    The Travis County District Attorney [Rosemary Lehmberg] should immediately indict this police officer who shot and killed the dog Cisco for something! I mean, neither she nor her predecessors ever seem to have been able to indict any police officer for shooting and killing any Homo sapiens – especially the young brown or black male kinds. Maybe, since it is said that a DA can "indict a ham sandwich,” Lehmberg could get the grand jury to indict this police officer for killing Cisco. Or for being stupid, ignorant, and afraid. Or all of the above.
