No accountability


To the Editor:

I am writing this letter on behalf of a person who can no longer speak for herself.

My dear friend Elizabeth Norcross died recently. Prior to her death, Elizabeth had her apartment broken into numerous times by an individual in search of prescription drugs. A total of 27 of these crimes on a person over 65 were recorded by a camera.

I opened The MV Times on Thursday and turned to the court report. I was appalled and shocked to see that this same person had all 27 charges dismissed. Twenty-seven counts of felony breaking and entering is serious business. This person needs to be held accountable for her actions. What kind of example is this for young people on this Island?
