Letter: Horsewhipping might be appropriate for violating trust
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

There have been several reports of death threats made to the goblin-topplers ("'Goblin' topplers say they are receiving death threats," Tribune, Oct. 18). These are most inappropriate.

Yes, they would learn a lesson, but it wouldn't last long enough.

For those in positions of trust and authority who commit serious breaches of that trust, perhaps horsewhipping would be more fitting. (Swallow hard, John!)
