RENFRO: It never stops

Print Article

If you have been following the Renfro murder trial, did you happen to see the other day when the defense brought in two inmates for character witnesses? I thought I would puke. I try to read about the trial, but some days I think my head is going to explode!

One would think having spent 26 years in law enforcement would make me immune to this garbage. I know going to court is never, never about justice. It is about your childhood, your abusive parents, your physical injuries and the damage society has done to you. It’s about hiring the most expensive doctors of all kinds, best lawyers, you name it, no price is too high in order to subvert justice.

Now two inmates giving their opinion on a murderer. Inmates turn on each other at the drop of a dime and we should give credence to what they think?

Hopefully the jury will see past all this garbage and realize it comes down to one thing, free will. Did he pull the trigger to kill someone?

So now society should pull the trigger on Renfro.
