Reader proud of relative

To the Editor:

I have a family member that had got into some trouble with meth a couple years back.

She turned herself in on a dealing charge and was out on bail for almost two years. She was in and out of the courts for two years also.

Very proud of her, I might add, because she has will power. She put herself through rehab after bailing out, took parenting classes and changed her whole life around. Now after two years of being clean, she is currently on home detention and she is being treated like a low life criminal.

Her house has been raided twice in less than a month. I mean, come on, there are other criminals out there to capture on our taxpayer money.

Like for instance, people who burn people's dogs and get away with stalking their families or people who come in to our homes and tear stuff up and then drive away drunk because the cops are too scared to arrest them.

An officer recovered stolen property from an individuals' house and then had the nerve to say, 'Well, I still don't think he did it."

Come on now. I expect law enforcement to do their job. That's what they are paid for.

Needless to say, the people I am talking about still are not in trouble. Now where is the justice?

Let's pick on someone that has changed their lives completely around and let the real criminals go because our officers are scared of them.
