Stockton police overreacted

Published: Wednesday, Jul. 23, 2014 - 9:07 am

Re "Man charged with murder in robbery" (Page B2, July 22): Once again, the overreaction of a law enforcement agency has resulted in the loss of an innocent life. This time it is Misty Holt-Singh, the bank hostage.

The police acted as if the city was in the midst of an invasion. There is one report that over 20 Stockton police vehicles were in pursuit shooting at the suspects. It appears the Singh family has retained counsel. Hopefully, this will result in positive changes in pursuit procedures.
