I am sick and tired of all these people with a political agenda vilifying the police ["AG may probe cop fatalities," News, Dec. 9].

A black police officer in Salt Lake City shot and killed an unarmed white man, Dillon Taylor, in August. There has been very little coverage in the media.

Where is the outrage, where are the riots and looting? Where is the Rev. Al Sharpton? Where are the demonstrations?

I agree that in the Garner case some kind of indictment should have been handed up, but stop blaming the police in all these situations.

In the video, besides seeing this poor man, Eric Garner, being taken down with all the police on him, you never see anyone attempting to give him CPR or using any method to help him when he stopped breathing. Why not?
