Letters to the Editor

Letter: Not a suspect anymore

Reference your headline of June 28: “Suspect gets 11 years for cross burning.” Have we dispensed with trials in San Luis Obispo courts? Are we now sending mere suspects up the river without the formality of convicting them? One would hope that only truly convicted felons would get 11 years in the pokey and not “suspects.” Or, have we dispensed with the editing of headlines at The Tribune?
