Sheriff Seal Responds To Times-Picayune NOLA.com Editorial Cartoon

Message from Sheriff Randy “Country” Seal
Reference Times-Picayune NOLA. com Editorial Cartoon

I strongly object to the inflammatory editorial cartoon reflecting different responses to “white people” and “black people.”

At a time when our country is being divided by various agendas, you chose to publish this very inappropriate statement which serves no purpose other than to inflame passions and pander to misconceptions. Shame on you for engaging in such brash and unprofessional yellow journalism which violates very tenet of professional ethics.

You owe every law enforcement officer a personal apology for your extremely inappropriate behavior and, at the least; you should publish a strong retraction.

Meanwhile, I encourage all law-abiding citizens to refrain from purchasing any print copy of The Times Picayune and to avoid any business which support you with advertising dollars. Our community deserves much better than what you provide.

Sheriff Randy Seal
