To the Editor;
The not guilty verdict of former police Chief Mary Lyons saddens me. It is another example of the double standard the justice system employs.
Those with political influence and/or money seems to affect the verdict given by our judges. The lowest subjects on the totem pole don’t have a chance, and we have all seen examples of what I speak.
Sadly, how unjust, it appears the judicial system is broken.
Thank you for the opportunity to give my view of the situation.
Colonel Arnold Briggs
