Letters: Davies deserves accoladesfor his recent comments

September 14, 2007 11:00 pm

"I'm writing in regards to the "Davies scandal" ("Attorney's argument causes stir in court," Sept 15). Well, I give accolades to Mr. Davies. It is about time someone fought tooth and nail against a corrupt District Attorney for their client by whatever means necessary, and if that "means" calling lesbians irrational, then so be it.

I don't see Mr. Davies being so far off base. I'm a Christian and I too think homosexuality is irrational to a Christian moral code.

I also believe we have guaranteed freedom of speech. To my understanding, that means being able to voice your opinion without legal retribution.

People are screaming "Mr. Davies works for the county and this kind of behavior is inappropriate." But wait, Mr Davies took an oath to defend his clients, not an oath to make county echelons happy.

Should Mr. Davies approach his job in a matter that he has to get permission from everyone in the county, and the D.A. as to what he can and cannot say in court?

I wish the District Attorney when doing his job had just a tenth of Mr. Davies integrity.

Mr. Davies is a good attorney and if I ever get in trouble with the law I hope to have him on my side.

Need I remind the community that the law of the land says "we are innocent until proven guilty," and isn't it Mr. Davies job to protect the rights of his clients, the innocent.

I also know Mr. Farren. Roger is a very nice guy and I don't believe he would hurt anyone, ever. I believe Mr. Farren was simply exercising his First Amendment rights to freedom of speech.

The homosexual bandwagon needs to be stopped.
