Backus in the right
With regard to your editorial today regarding Judge Backus’ decision to release the Amalia suspects:
The state provided no evidence of conspiracy to commit acts of terror. Owning legally acquired and licensed weapons is a Second Amendment guaranteed right—even for people of color.
These suspects are destitute and their children are in custody. How could they possibly constitute a flight risk?
If poverty and malnourishment of children is a crime, the entire state is at risk of incarceration.
You should apologize to Judge Backus. Her reasoning was solid and she upheld the law.
