Montanans are nice, down to earth people who most enjoy the outdoors. Playful, that like to joke and have fun. The population is not huge and there is plenty of countryside to enjoy. A great place for anyone to visit or live that loves hiking, wildlife, gem and rock mining, snowmobiling, skiing, fishing, hunting, horseback riding and the list goes on. The down fall is the government is too big for the population. They have a government “gone wild.” These cowboys have not really been held accountable and about 95% of Montanans do not know what is going on behind closed doors. The government has found a great system on how to make money all in the name of justice and protecting their citizens. I mean, who is going to argue that locking up criminals is a bad thing? The problem is, if you don’t know this is going on you could be the next one they decide to target. Yes, by all means criminals need to be locked up. Not people who are railroaded for profit. Not people where there is no evidence, no proof and charges and convictions are based on “hearsay” and “maybe’s.” The last time I knew America was not based on that. You had to have proof and could not convict and sentence based on those things. They trump up false charges and scare the person being held half to death to get them to plea bargain. “Plea bargaining can present a dilemma to defense attorneys, in that they must choose between vigorously seeking a good deal for their present client, or maintaining a good relationship with the prosecutor, for the sake of helping future clients.” How can you get fair representation based on this? How can you get fair representation when the defense attorney tells you “You will not get a fair trial!”
The county attorneys can state that they “thought” this person committed even more crimes, degrading the person that is being held. Lies are now called “opinion” and county attorneys can get away with it. But the people don’t know as they read and hear the news that this is only his “opinion”, they believe it to be factual. You may ask how do I know this? I know this because I have watched it happen first hand. I have sat in meetings and heard these things with my own ears coming from the lips of those that say they are trying to protect you. This is like a wolf that says it will guard the hen-house. But, when does the wolf turn? Can you trust a wolf? Can you trust the politicians and the government that does these things to others and think that it might not happen to you? Wolves are a problem in Montana now with the elk population declining. There is even a bigger problem with wolves in the justice system and government of Montana.
