I read the Tony Platt article about police homicides ("Homicide by Police," May 14) with the same feeling as was so well stated by Tom Dammann in the May 21 issue ("Mailbox"). Tony should be ashamed of sending out such poorly researched and documented material with a definite bias being pointed at the police and the review boards that review these unfortunate events. Instead of a professional researcher, he sounds very biased toward the police. Such work does a real disservice to a fair understanding of the issues and circumstances that resulted in the events.
