____________________________

We have 38 official charges for the month of JULY. Each one with it’s own inevitable paperwork and many hours of desk work, as well as the time and effort involved for the police to do their part… ALL courtesy of the taxpayers of the county.

If I counted right, there were 18 dismissed all together and 1 acquittal. Well. 19 from 38 is…….. HALF the charges for the month had to be tossed.

I say no more.
