** – * WHAT ROLE DID RACE PLAY?
— Doing some research this afternoon. —
RESIGN NOW, STEDMAN
** Oh, my heavens! Does Stedman really think the public (and the County Commissioners) are this stupid? This is the most ridiculous thing I have read in years (click here for the above LNP story). Resign, Stedman!
REMORSELESS OR INNOCENT?
* Rentas did not apologize to any of the officers. He said to President Judge Reinaker:
“Mr. Anderson wasn’t there. You [referring to the judge] weren’t there. You don’t know what really happened. I wasn’t shooting at anybody, I wasn’t trying to kill anybody… I’m young. It’s not even where I wanted to be.”
From the incredibly slanted CrimeWatch post by DA spokesman Brett Hambright on Rentas’ sentencing, ” ‘Entirely Remorseless’ Man who Fired at Police in Columbia Jailed up to 62 Years,” (click here).
Was Rentas really trying to kill police? Or was he incredibly stupidly shooting out a window for something to do? Oh, this story blew up huge in the news! Huge. And it was all about race and what was going on in the country at the time. But was it all in error? And what ever happened with Blanding Watson and the Lancaster NAACP who jumped into this case with both feet? Did they let this kid down? Have they done anything at all?
You can shoot into occupied homes if you are a good ol’ white boy in Lititz!

Thank you letter writer, Carol Heisey. This case has bothered me as well. There are several cases I have covered over the last few years where justice was not done and District Attorney Stedman knew it and approved it.
And there are those cases where there was an influential parent/political buddy of the DA where they did literally got a slap on the wrist or nothing at all!
