Unjust justice. That is the feeling I have when I think of our local law enforcement.
On Friday of last week, a local family found out a grandfather sexually molested all of his granddaughters and has been doing so for years. It totals three sets of parents and four babies. The parents reported the incident and Wood County Sheriff's deputies showed up to take a report. All weekend the parents and children lived on pins and needles and no sleep waiting for help from our local law enforcement. They left many messages and as of 3 p.m. Tuesday had still not even had a return call. In fact they came to find out a report was never even done.
The strange thing is, if someone was using marijuana or texting and driving, deputies would be there in five minutes, with a fury. But four innocent children devastated and a family shook to its core can't even get a call back. They keep crying they need more money to protect the community and stronger laws for sex offenses. I have a great idea, enforce the ones in place.
What's that new hummer for, and since when did a gun wear out. I mean they're not in a military zone. I am disgusted by what has transpired.
As a single mother, I do not feel safe here. We need a sheriff and mayor who do their job instead of looking for ways to spend our money and getting in the limelight as much as they can. So as of now, a disgusting pedophile is still unarrested and four little girls and their families have no answers. Isn't exactly a warm and safe feeling, is it?
