Be slow to judge

-A A +A
By The Staff

 It's been a rough three weeks in Levy County.

First School Board member Billy Morrison was charged with a misdemeanor.

This week we learned Chiefland community leader Mary Marshall was under investigation for embezzlement.

Then comes the news late Wednesday that Commissioners Sammy Yearty and Tony Parker were suspended from office by Gov. Charlie Crist, following federal indictments.

It's enough to make you scratch your head and wonder, "What in the world is going on?"

We're blessed to live in a country where people are innocent until proven guilty.

We all know it's easy to pass judgment based on what we hear, but with these controversial matters now facing the heart of our county, we ask but one thingbe slow to judge.

The scenarios these four are involved in are being played out publicly.

While it is surely difficult for Morrison, Marshall, Yearty and Parker, it is probably equally bad for their family and friends who do not lead public lives and should not be cast in the spotlight.

Imagine if you were the spouse, sister or child of one of these people. How would you feel? React?
