Community is hurting; justice must be served
It looks like a mess to me. The good old boys got caught with their socks down. A good old girl envisioned a productive technique to acquire some cash. Left unguarded, it was too much to resist.
Using all her intuitive horse sense, the good old girl saddled up for a trail ride. She rounded up a million here and there as the years passed.
Where were the old boys? Thinking like an honest good old boy, there was nothing to fear. All is safe in the old corral. No suspicions, because all is OK under the vigilance of the good old girl. Oh?
People got hurt and are being hurt real bad. Institutions have manifested a black shadow of not being able to be trusted. Severe punishment and punishments are justified. The whole community has been stained.
