Backus in the right

The Taos News - - FAVOR Y CONTRA - Taos

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.

Re­gards,

AN­THONY RADEMEYER
