Police showed they had nothing to hide

Michael, Schenectady


In your May 19 editorial [“Coincidence leads to suspicion”], which is critical of the way the Schenectady Police Department handled the arrest of one its officers for DWI, you close by stating the police ask the public to ignore their common sense. 

Common sense tells me that if the Schenectady Police Department was trying to hide something, the officer would not have been arrested in the first place.
