Editor,Regarding Sheriff Thompson and his policy of serving warrants, profiled in the June 2 news article, "Strong arm of the law," kicking in doors is a sure way to raise the level of violence. Have you considered arresting or serving the suspect at work or at the store shopping? Maybe the parking lot. The lessons you have learned after the Stewart shooting is to arm up. How about going the other direction? One officer rather than a platoon. One officer dressed in a business suit would have been less provocative, if you must go to his door.
