I am greatly dismayed and shocked to see that our District Attorney, Stan Garnett has reneged on his promise to serve justice in the Molly Midyette case. I know him to be a conscientious servant of our city so I am baffled by the current state of events with his reversal (Daily Camera 10/29/09).
I fear that it is because Molly is a woman and so this case is easier to cast aside. I hate to think this, but justice has not been served to this young woman over and over again. Domestic violence is a terrible reality in our world that demands thorough and tough examination without intimidation if we have any hope of reducing its power and prevalence.
I hope that our DA will promptly reconsider his stance and allow the motion to be heard so that the voice of justice can prevail.
