Letter: Police and Forum show no respect

I could not believe the headline on the front page of the March 18 Forum: “Officer who killed himself was to be fired.”

How insensitive you all must be to Lt. Jeff Skuza’s surviving family and his children. They now will be targets. This story should never have been released or printed. How shameful of all of you; have you no respect for the living who must continue on after such a horrific death?

I am also ashamed of our chief of police for making this statement to all news media. This issue should have been between the police and the surviving family members, not the public. There was no safety concern to the public involved in this entire matter. I am truly embarrassed for the Police Department and all news media that carried this story.

My sincerest sympathy to the family.
