I am writing this letter because I am very concerned about the recent shooting of Parminder Singh Shergill by two Lodi police officers. I’m wondering why they didn’t Tase him or call for a canine unit? Why so hasty to shoot? Two police officers against one man with a knife? Why not take him down some other way?

I thought the police were supposed to “protect and serve” us. That is why we pay taxes. Mr. Shergill wasn’t protected, and to me he was a victim of a “shoot first and ask questions later” action.

I also think that the police investigations are a sham. There should always be an independent outside investigation whenever a shooting has occurred.
