Now that I have read the facts, I must say that the judge’s ruling made perfect sense to me and probably reflects an approach that would hopefully help rehabilitate some of the city’s many non-violent offenders. So my initial out rage is quelled and I am sad to say almost embarrassed that I reacted that way. However, as I reflect on this, I think The Sun has some responsibility as well. The Sun printed the commissioner’s view of the facts and his assessment of this sentence without doing its own due diligence. We all — the police department, the city, the justice system and the reporters — have a responsibility to report the facts completely. Was there really a need to print Mr. Tuggle’s op-ed before investigating and vetting what Judge Geller’s reasoning was when he handed down what on the surface seemed an excessively lenient sentence?
