Reacting to the Events of Yesterday
In response to the press release issued by the Hudson Police Department reporting the arrest of Quintin Cross, Dan and Mary Udell submitted a letter to the editor of the Register-Star. They shared that letter with Gossips and gave permission for it to be published here.
Race baiting is alive and well at the City of Hudson Police Department. In a scurrilous press release just issued by the Police Department on the arrest of Quintin Cross for an alleged credit card felony, Hudson Police Commission Gary Graziano said the following: "This is no surprise. Given his track record, it was only a matter of time for this wannabe activist and so-called leader to prove once again who he really is and what he really stands for."
Excuse me, Mr. Graziano, I thought in the United Stated we hold that the accused is innocent until proven guilty. It is shameful for the Police Commissioner to make such a statement before a trial.
The Police press release also gratuitously mentions another black man in Hudson who was accused in a stabbing incident. No connection whatsoever except as an excuse for a white police commissioner to smear black people. Three cheers for the Register-Star, which did not include this hateful reference.
Dan and Mary Udell
