Disgusting. Sometimes it's difficult to think of a good word for something you observe, but disgusting is just perfect. The 34th Street Wall has often been a source of distraction for me, but today I stopped and turned my hazards on. Who would do something so … disgusting?

What did Lt. Corey Dahlem have to do with Meyer's Taser incident? He was a cop, you say? Well, anyone who could read found out what a great guy he was. Anyone who ever met or was stopped by Dahlem could find out what a fair cop he was. He didn't Taser Meyer, and I'd like to think he wouldn't have.

For those of you who are against all cops and believe they should all "rot in prison," why don't you stop blaming the world and blame the parties involved: Meyer, Sen. John Kerry, Officer Nicole Mallo, and Sgt. Eddie King. Leave the Wall alone, leave the cops alone and focus on the fact that a student was Tasered, one cop gave an order, one cop followed and Kerry did nothing (except continued to answer questions).

To the person or people who defaced a memorial, if you have any wisp of a soul left, correct the damage you caused and write a letter of apology to the Dahlem family. Don't worry, bro, with the current situation unfolding, you have little risk of being Tasered.

Nonetheless, here is the fame and attention you sought. Here is my letter of disgust. Congratulations.
