Harshness toward Dodge

Monday, November 13, 2017

I’m writing in concern about all the talk about Montague Police Chief Charles “Chip” Dodge. Is he not human like the rest of us? Just because he is chief of police doesn’t mean he can’t have problems like the rest of us.

If he didn’t posess the title of “chief” in front of his name, he’d be no different than you or I, and he wouldn’t have been made a spectacle. He’s human, and we humans sadly make mistakes. If we didn’t make mistakes, we wouldn’t learn from them. Addiction affects all walks of life, and it’s too bad more people don’t understand that.

Kudos to Chief Dodge for admitting his issue and for getting help with his recovery.
