A cautionary tale

This is a cautionary tale that illustrates the dilemma we all face about what we can really believe in these times of instant, real-time text messages, tweets, and Facebook posts. And it shows, once again, how important ethical and reliable news sources are in this age of  social media and the fake news that comes with it.
A couple of weeks ago, this newspaper received a letter to the editor, via e-mail.  The letter was actually addressed to the  village of Kalkaska but was  sent to  The Review for publication.  It was properly signed and the writer provided a downstate  address and phone number.  The letter writer explained that his son had recently been stopped by a Kalkaska police officer for speeding and went on to explain that  after receiving the ticket and as his son was replacing his  car papers back into the glove compartment, he noticed out of the corner of his eye that the police officer had drawn his weapon and was pointing it at him.   The son, he wrote, “ immediately stopped what he was doing and put his hands in the air.”  The young man  told his father that  “he was very, very scared and could not believe this was happening to him.”
