To the Editor:

I have a brief question and a brief statement. Why was it good and appropriate (which it certainly was) in the 1960s to send federal law enforcement into Southern states to protect Black citizens civil rights when state governments would not?

But no it is bad to send federal law enforcement into Western states to protect citizens’ property rights and safety when city and state governments will not.

I did not vote for Donald Trump.
