Judge Was Right

Editor, News-Register:

Need to comment on the letter regarding the bar fire and Judge Hummel’s ruling. Someone has to stand up for those in danger — our firefighters.

Using drugs and alcohol as the EXCUSE for the incident is what is wrong with our system. DO THE CRIME, DO THE TIME/. As long as we keep excusing bad choices, crime will continue.

Judge Hummel was absolutely right! The first responders offer their lives to save our lives and property, usually in an accidental fire, not a planned one. Would you feel regret if a firefighter was injured or worse? It would be on YOU!

OWN IT! Learn. Stop.

Judge Hummel made the right call.
