Don’t blame Merced PD

June 30, 2014 

Regarding: “Police chief’s in-law arrested” (Page A1, June 28): The actions of Jesse Saucedo have nothing to do with the Merced Police Department or chief Norm Andrade, yet the media has to use them to make a headline. Why not do some coverage about the dangers our officers face every day? Please tell the story as it is and leave the department out of it.
