Rights need to be protected

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.
