(Jan 31 2009) - Flowers and Trees for Vincent Steen :
Letter to the Editor from Debbie Johnson :
Dear Editor - {Gentle Giant, Go Time#72 and The Lumberjack} I have been friends with the Connor/Steen family for 36 years. Vincent believed in God and had a reverence for nature. I invite all of you to plant flowers or a tree in rememberance. I think this will in a small way help with the grief of loss. He was a brother, son, grandson and nephew. He was also a friend to many. If you would like to share a thought or memory you can email me at debjohnson1977@yahoo.com. Thanks ... Debbie Johnson

The Badge is Not A License To Kill
Letter to the Editor from Shawna Coleman :
Sunday night Jan. 10, 2010 around 7:30 pm, two Porterville Police Officers shot and killed an unarmed 26 year old young man in his own home after they harassed him while riding his bike, and supposed traffic violation! They tazered him, he ran into his mothers house, Three officers entered the home and tazered him again, once again he evaded the police into his kitchen because they were hurting him, two of the three police officers pulled their guns shooting him 3 times in the chest which resulted in a fatal outcome, while in the presents of his mother and younger brother. This is not the first time that the Porterville Police Officers has gone overboard and not followed protocols that are set in place by the people of the state of California... but this is where it ends!

The Post has made a commitment to honor the Family and friends of Vincent Steen by creating a SPECIAL PAGE on the Post. Our hope and prayer is that this those involved in this senseless shooting will admit they did more than make a mistake. Additionally, we pray that this inexcuseable murder will not be covered up by the Porterville Police Department, the district attorney's office or by the attorney generals office. We truely believe that this could have been handled a lot better and more professional. And finally, we ask the Porterville Police Department and the Porterville City Council ... is this how you honor the citizens of Porterville who voted for "MEASURE H" to increase their taxes so we who live in Porterville could feel more safe a secure ? We decreased our salaries and increased the salaries of the police, fire, and emergency services. Maybe it's time to RECALL MEASURE H and to RECALL the CITY COUNCIL.
