To The Editor:
I am writing this letter in response to the four-paragraph write up I merited in the Catskill Mountain News police blotter back in May.
The report said I “abused” my grandson and hit him in the head.
First of all, if anyone thinks like I do; when the read the word “abuse” it gives the connotation of extreme physical bodily harm or sexual assault (not a slap in the face).
Second, I neither physically nor sexually assaulted him. I slapped his mouth for talking back; missed his mouth and caught him on the right cheek hard enough to leave a bruise.
