Letters: Cops, attorneys need to be held accountable to the public

My letter is in response to Wesley Nunn (Letter to the Editor "It's not so hard to stay out of trouble with law enforcement," Oct. 17).

Our Watchdog group isn't about one specific case, that being of Brian Strom, who has been and is still be held accountable for his misbehavior. There are so many other cases in this town that are dealt with very unfairly. Whether it is abusive cops or court appointed attorneys that simply give little to no defense to those who cannot afford it.

I was on scene three years ago when two men climbed into a family's window, carried belongings of this family out the front door in a duffle bag and our sheriff's deputy cited the crooks with a ticket, shook their hands and told them to have a nice day. Wow. That doesn't make me feel real safe, how about you? By the way, the crooks never made it to court; all charges were dropped by the cops.

Maybe Wesley, you would like to join us at our next watchdogs meeting and see what we are really about before you go judging what it is we are doing. Maybe then you won't be so shallow-minded the next time you see one of us downtown standing up for our rights or the rights of others. I have personally never been in trouble with the law. I am a stay-at-home mom that teaches her kids at home. I teach my kids to stand up for what is right. And I believe equal justice for all is right.
