Both sides share blame for police brutality incident [Letter]

September 22, 2014

Regarding the officer who beat a citizen near North Avenue recently, both these men share guilt ("Baltimore officer is suspended after video of beating is released," Sept. 16).

The policeman was wrong for letting his emotions get in the way, and the individual was wrong to provoke him.

Until Baltimore and the nation hold both the cops and the people they interact with responsible for their behavior, such conflicts are inevitable.

John Holter, Baltimore
