In the March 16 edition of the Globe Gazette, there was a report of a woman who was arrested and and being held in the Kossuth County Jail for taking a shower at a truck stop and failing to pay the $12.50 cost.
On the other side of the coin we have local county attorneys who make plea deals with pedophiles and other sexual predators so that they spend minimal or no time in jail. To boot we have judges who go along with these deals.
Shameful that these dangerous predators are allowed to be free to offend again, and my sympathy for the victims of these horrific crimes who don't receive justice. We must make changes at the ballot box.
