charged with the sex Ual assault of a 14yearold evidence was presented by the prosecution that was not disputed by the prov ing the Man did in fact have multiple sexual encounters with this child Over the course of a including testimony by the the prosecution also Dis played that the defendant was in fact aware of the age the child at the time of the in the the jury concluded that the Man was not guilty of sexually assaulting this one of the jurors told a police detective that they Felt the child was too which should have had no bearing on their decision of guilt or inno i have always believed in and defended our criminal Justice even when i have Felt like a victim of it As a Law enforcement i have never spoken out Over the outcome of a trial but in this i feel that its necessary for our

to our our knowing our feelings concerning taxes and knowing they need our votes to continue their present Cater to our desires and let us continue in this pres ent impracticable situation instead of insisting that we pay our debts As they come borrow from whomever is will ing to lend us the surely we must realize that this Money will eventually have to be repaid and that while we Are using we Are paying in Terest on the interest we Are paying is a Drain on our re sources and Only benefits the countries who Are receiving it when we have storms in floods in fires in the first thing that comes to mind what is the govern ment going to do about it we dont seem to realize that these extra services Are resulting in new and these new offices require technology and people to operate this kind of
