Letters to the Editor

Wait until the trial before reporting story | Letter


Try this on for size … before you crucify and find someone guilty in your pathetic, small town extreme left liberal rag, actually let the person go to trial and then report on the facts.

You have no idea what this story entails, and yet you attempt to ruin a young man’s reputation forever?

Guilty until proven innocent?

If viewing pornography is illegal and immediately subjects any person to immediate search and seizure, then local police, the FBI, DHS and Smokey the Bear need to seize and search each and every computer worldwide.

I, of course, would never advocate someone purposely viewing immoral depictions of minors.

We all know that is abhorrent and illegal as does the 99 percent of the population.

Do you know if the computer you use is “clean”? Has your son, daughter, friend of a son, friend of a daughter used your computer?

Has your friend used your computer? A neighbor used your computer? A hacker used your computer?

Have you ever downloaded music, pictures of family, performed an Internet search and accidentally clicked on the wrong link and, voila, all kinds of decadent crap pops up in your face?

You see, you and the liberal media are what is wrong with this country. It starts with the demon Obama and lands on you.

I for one will never, ever buy another single paper and I will openly discourage anyone else that I know to never purchase your rag.

I know a lot, and I mean a lot, of people.
