I was really disappointed after reading "Let's start by controlling police gun violence" by Jim Bovard (Commentary, Monday). Apparently Mr. Bovard's qualifications for analyzing gun violence and, specifically, police use of weapons, is that he has written a book. I feel comfortable declaring myself an expert in this area, having served 20 years as a police officer and police official supervising others.
James Bovard is correct that government bias and manipulation of a national happiness index is potentially problematic ("Dollars for smiles," Commentary, Monday).
