To the editor:

    I am confused. I am having difficulty in understanding why Lt. Krpoun is being hounded in court for doing what he was hired to do. He was called to deal with a gang fight. It looks to me that he handled it in a professional way. The fight was defused; no one was injured or even arrested.

    I have known Lt. Krpoun for many years. I commend him for the many awards he has received for doing an outstanding job. I know Lt. Krpoun to be honest and a splendid peace officer. I think the nonsense brought against him should be dropped and he should be reinstated immediately. Also, he should be given his back pay plus interest. I also think he should receive an apology for the embarrassment he has suffered. I think we are lucky to have Lt. Krpoun on the job.
