To the Editor:

I recently went to Dollar tree in Mitchell on a Wednesday. Friday, a Mitchell police officer came to my door. It took three days so the Dollar Tree employees could make sure they all had the same story for the police.

The officer said the Dollar Tree employee and my neighbor, "XYZ," said Dollar Tree had a very clear video of me touching their car's door handles. I said I did not touch the car's door handles; they repeated what XZY said. I did look at the car; I did not touch the car.

We talked, and again the officer said they have a video of me touching the car's door handles. I said, "Have you seen the video?" and the officer said "no." I would think the officer would watch the video before talking to me. I said I will stop down to see the video. I want to see the video, because I know there was not a video since I did not touch XYZ's car.

XYZ is telling everybody about this, even the part about the video that does not exist. So this is the reason for this, so all my friends know this is not true. Even more recently, XYZ accused me of flinging water on their car.

Also recently, I went to Dollar Tree and parked in the physical handicapped spot, and XYZ said I tried to hit their car with my car door. I did not do either of these. If this had happened before security cameras, I would have had something pinned on me that I did not even do, as the Dollar Tree is a business and the police would have taken their side since they are a business, There are two Dollar Tree employees that park their cars right outside the front doors of Dollar Tree. This really shows no respect or thoughtfulness for the customers. Other people have also noticed.

XYZ asked the police to give me a message. I do not believe a word you said, and as far as I am concerned, you can go fly a kite.
