I must respond to the recent opinion printed in the Roane County News regarding the Boston police force.
The writer insinuated that this tragedy could have been averted if the Boston police had done their jobs.
Shame on you for even suggesting this! Lots of people pack backpacks when attending an all-day outdoor activity.
People use backpacks today for things like books, computers, drinks, snacks, clothing.
Parents use backpacks for diapers, bottles, toys and more.
