‘Cheap political points’

Dear Editor:

We were very disgusted by the editorial cartoon of June 18.

It is insensitive and insulting to use the tragic death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police to score cheap political points on a totally unrelated issue.

The cartoon was very jarring to say the least, when published in the same issue as the coverage of the Black Lives Matter march organized by high school students in Erin.

Your publication provides excellent coverage of local issues, but we felt compelled to raise our objections to this particular cartoon.

Mathew and Christine Hill,
