Cartoon inflamed class warfare, hatred of police

Re "More young people were shot in a poor black neighborhood last night" (Editorial cartoon, April 27): I am writing to protest this cartoon that The Bee saw fit to print. Far from funny, this is a perfect example of one man's bias against the police and using the media to influence readers to share his views.

He has a newscaster saying, "More young people were shot and killed in a poor black neighborhood last night." The cartoon goes on to infer that nothing will be done about it, thereby denouncing not only the police department, but the city in general. How did the editors not miss the obvious encouragement of class warfare? And how is it that under the guise of being a "cartoon," inflammatory rhetoric is becoming all too common?
