Letter: When impartiality is gone, it raises questions of fairness

Editor,

Personally, I don’t see how anyone can support Donald Trump. His policies are bad and his character much worse. However, why is a prosecutor — someone who makes decisions that have long lasting repercussions in a person’s life — blasting Trump’s supporters with juvenile rhetoric which insults the character of many people who are good, honest, hard working, law-abiding citizens?

Like many, I hope these people change their vote since I think it’s the right thing to do.

But how can any conservative, all the more, a Trump supporter, have faith that they will be treated without bias and in a fair manner — judicially speaking — after reading his comments regarding their character?

I’m not calling for the crucifixion of Greg Banks like others are; he’s done his job well in my opinion.

But when people lose faith in a prosecutor’s ability to maintain fairness, that’s a problem that needs to be addressed.
