Signing petition for reform of justice system an easy decision

If you do the crime - you do the time no matter who you know

To the Editor;

My heart goes out to the family of Lynn Kalmring as it has for all those family’s before them that have suffered a loss at the hands of those who are supposed to uphold the law but have a different interpretation when it’s one of their own kind.

I don’t know anybody in their right mind other than the chosen few who escape punishment for their crime that would not support a petition for the scales of justice to be re-balanced.

A petition is great but in this case and many other forgotten on a back burner should rekindle together and send this message to incompetents who hinder, not help.

You people that adjust the law to your liking for the who’s who – take notice laws should be applied equally to all.

To do what’s right is a no – brainer, which doesn’t need the tireless journey of the very people in mourning and emotional distress to try to change laws that  already exist.

If you do the crime – you do the time no matter who you know or what uniform or coat of many colors one decides to disgrace.

I will now find and sign the Lynn Kalmring petition – good luck as I may be dead before I hear the verdict of how to change what already exists.

Tom Isherwood, Olalla
