Rights need to be protected

Print Article

The election is just around the corner. To the American people, register and vote. Remember, we make America great. Let’s protect our children’s and grandchildren’s rights.

It’s time for new faces in counties and Congress for those who will better the people’s rights. It’s time to stop corruption and false convicting and imprisonment of many innocent lives. Many courts have violated due process, the right to a speedy trial. Courts charge some families harsher than others with similar crimes.

Drug addiction is a mental illness. They deserve treatment, not prison. So why are others treated like first-time offenders and others have been denied these programs? We all deserve equal protection in our courts according to the Civil Rights Act.
