Regarding the article “Craft is named new police chief” (Jan. 6):
If Terrence Craft was so qualified, why wasn’t he Greenwood Mayor Carolyn McAdams’ initial choice? To me all she is doing now is damage control. The only reason for this now is she was under pressure to do so.
The mayor and the whole City Council should be embarrassed because this young man clearly should have been the first choice after Chief Henry Purnell.
Regarding the editorial “Capitol riot brings shame to GOP” (Jan. 7):
It did not bring any shame to me. The Republicans should have burned it down like the Democrats have been doing for the last four years.
