- "Chief scrutinized over Morris Case" Sarasota Herald 12/13/2012
Another reason why naivete, excuses, fear, or rationalizing should ever preclude one from doing the right thing.
In this case, Kelly Osborn, relentlessly and fearlessly seeking the truth surrounding her daughter's tragic death is a shining example.
Persistence, patience, and calm.
Now, even the Police Chief is under fire.
No one is exempt from the law, especially not law enforcement officers who are sworn to tell the truth as they wear a badge and hold sway over us all.
It takes the courage of ones convictions to speak truth to power.
Law enforcement agencies are acutely aware of their status and sometimes abuse it.
Fortunately for them, most people would rather let an injustice go unanswered rather than stand tall and do the right thing.
Like Kelly Morris, when it is over the death of a loved one, the dogged pursuit of the truth should be an easy thing to do.
