Heika’s Letter to Sgt. Cemorelis

HeikaHello Officer Cemorelis,

I’m writing to you today to inform you that I am VERY disappointed in your performance this morning in the courtroom. I have known you for several years and thought you were so much better than that. I have heard from several sources (including your ex wife and yes, even some colleagues) about many underhanded things you have done, but have always stuck up for you saying that you are one of the “few good ones” in Keene. You are intelligent, funny, and charming. Now I also know you to be short fused, drunk on power, and a man of little to no morals. I am so sorry for whatever happened to change you into such a wretch, but please do NOT take it out on peaceful people.

My friend was merely sitting quietly in the courtroom in support of others (There are multiple videos out showing this). He was not being disruptive, nor was he any type of threat. Yet you felt it ok to smack this wonderful being right out of his chair? Have I mentioned how disappointed I am in your DISGUSTING conduct??

When you put that blue uniform on in the morning, you should look in the mirror and ask yourself, “How am I going to HELP the public today?” “How am I going to PROTECT and SERVE the peaceful members of this COMMUNITY?” “How am I going to make a POSITIVE difference today?” To me, that is what being a police officer is all about. Those were reasons why I once dreamed of being a police officer. But seeing so many instances such as today completely turned me off of that notion in a hurry!

So please, don’t be surprised when I don’t give you a friendly “hello” next time we cross paths. You used unnecessary force against my friend and that is not easily forgivable.
