In response to Robert Tanenbaum's column "Plea-Bargain in Denny Case Would Let Mob Rule Prevail," Commentary, Dec. 24: The Denny case must not be plea-bargained away. Plea-bargain the case away, and the shooters and outlaws will do it again and again. The job of the district attorney is to investigate charges, and try those responsible for the crime. Period.

OPINION

In your endorsement for Los Angeles County district attorney (editorial, May 26), you state that "the post is arguably the most powerful in Los Angeles County." If the race is that serious, shouldn't your coverage of its candidates have been? You admit that Ira Reiner cannot make an "open and shut" case for his reelection. Then you go on to dismiss Howard Johnson with three words, "lacks sufficient experience"; discard Robert Tanenbaum because of "tendencies" toward abrasiveness; praise Gil Garcetti for "thoughtful stands on many issues," then nix him with character assassination by innuendo; and wind up with Sterling Norris, with whom you disagree with on several major issues and who you seem to hope will be able to administrate.
