Enough with the aggression


To the Editor:

While bombs fell on the streets and homes of Gaza, it was ironic to see photos of our very own Vineyard SWAT team. I’m so relieved – the deer in my garden have really been pissing me off.

I did read the article, and I know examples of potentially dangerous situations were given, but it is far more dangerous to promote the culture of aggression by using extreme violence to counteract violence. How long will it take us to realize that we have to change our responses on all levels to achieve peace?

This is somewhat reminiscent of those helicopters we taxpayers spend thousands on that invade our skies in late summer to score a couple of marijuana plants. Enough already.
