The March 22 article Burn-attack victim found with drugs detailed Michael Brewer being arrested for having a bag of marijuana with a grinder, rolling papers and other drug items. To top it off, he didn’t have a valid driver’s license.
However, I was flabbergasted to read that Circuit Court Judge James Martz released Brewer with just a warning to “stay out of trouble.” This is the kind of celebrity justice normally reserved for the Lindsay Lohans and Paris Hiltons of the world. I know people who have been punished more for doing less.
I would hope that MADD supporters as well as all Broward County voters remember Judge Martz and this travesty of justice when the next election cycle comes around.
