Dear neighbors,

It would seem a few among us are willing to punish those charged with crimes prior to court decision on guilt or innocence. The fact that we only punish those convicted and then label them for the remainder of their life seems to be a disservice to our communities.

Does anyone remember when prisons were designated to be correctional institutions and probation was intended to create re-entry into society? Has our willingness for punishment simply eliminated our fair view of justice?

Ah, perhaps the devil is in the oxymorons,

It takes a long process (and a lot of money) for a teacher to actually be fired from their position, in any circumstance, including this one. When I was in high school, a P.E. teacher was caughting watching the girls in the locker room. He was "let go" and not fired because of the time/money it takes to actually follow through the firing. The large sum of lawyer fees, etc. is the problem. It's a very frustrating process and not fair, especially in these circumstances.

Dear Neighbors,

Man was arrested for child pornography because he had his baby picture in his wallet and he was nude. He was arrested for drug possession because he could not produce a valid prescription for his back pain medication. It happened in Connecticut several years ago and the charges were eventually dismissed after he had spent all his wealth to defend himself.

Now that is funny? It isn't innocence that needs to proven, it is guilt. It isn't the role of vocal outrage that determines guilt, it is able justice.

Make sure that you do not separate justice from freedom because there is no freedom without justice for all.
