Court Resembles A Chaotic Mockery? HOGANSVIIA HOME NEWS - MARCH 22, 2001 DEAR EDITOR: Mockery is defined by Merriarn-Webster as "an insin- cere, contemptible, or imperti- nent imitation of something worthwhile; farce; joke; laugh- ingstock." This is a very fitting descrip- tion of the City of Hogansville Municipal Court. The March 8 session was com- plete chaos! The extremely small court- room was packed and everyone in attendance, including the judge, police officers, probation officers, lawyers, plaintiffs, defendants and spectators, were all talking at once. Four small children were allowed to run up and down the aisle and in and out of the rows of seats and call out to their moth- er and father and to each other during the entire proceedings. It reminded me of a three- ring circus! I always thought there was supposed to be "order in the court." I was subpoenaed to appear as a witness in a case, and I could not hear one word that was spo- ken by the person testifying. I do not understand why the judge chose not to show some pro- fessionalism and civility and con- trol the proceedings so that a law abiding citizen could have a lit- tle more confidence in our judi- cial system. As it stands now, I hope that I never have to waste my time and hairspray to have to attend such a pathetic event. I was extremely disappoint- ed by the whole thing, and don't see why it should even take place if the laws and rules of order are not enforced. It is hard for me to have respect for a court of law that is conducted in such a manner as this one was. Thank you for this opportuni- ty to voice my opinion. BEVERLY WEEKS Hogansville Consider Baby Abuse DEAR FJDITOP we live in an amazing socie- ty, don't we: Anything can and will happen. I love animals as wen as anybody, and probably better than some. I do not like to see them mistreated. I love children more so, and I do not want to see them abused or mistreated in any way. It seems to me that we kinda got things out of perspective in the society we live in today. When an animal is abused or mistreated in any way, there is always a lot of publicity, and all kinds of public outcries about it. How come we do not hear more about the thousands of babies that are aborted, and those that are abused each day? The public and our government will hang somebody that abuses ani- mals, and they should be pun- ished, but why don't we do some- thing about the abgrtionist and the abuser? When you take a baby's life you are committing murder, and getting away with it in man's eyes. But remember this one thing, you will give account for this senseless murder one day. I believe as a Christian, if we can do anything about abortion and don't do it, then we are guilty also. I believe that we have the power through the, Holy Spirit to do something, if we will only pray and seek God's will and be obe- dient to the Holy Spirit.
