Letters: Epstein case does not fit the words, 'and justice for all'

Palm Beach Post |

Does the handling of the Jeffrey Epstein case stand in stark contrast to the words found on Lady Justice? Do you think some minority kid presently in jail for possession of a marijuana joint gets released to go to work every day at his fast-food job?

There needs to be an investigation into the sweetheart deal given Mr. Epstein and how he was treated during all phases of this poorly handled case.

Does any of this fit the words, "and justice for all"?

Americans must vote for a

free nation, free elections

In the days immediately following President Donald Trump's call for returning the members of "the squad" to their "native" countries, I think a critical point was overlooked.

Wasn't it French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte who said, "L'Etat c'est moi." (I am the state.)? What our president is doing is defining himself as the state. It is perfectly understandable that some would hate Donald Trump and still love this country, and that is what this free nation is all about. And why we have free elections to change what we perceive as a bad president. I fear for our nation if this dangerous man continues in office much longer.

It is possible to like Trump's

policies, despise his behavior

While I dislike President Trump's personal behavior, even more I dislike his ideas; for instance, packing the U.S. Supreme Count so that the Citizens United decision can't be reversed, increased military spending, a tax cut mostly for the wealthy, reducing the spirit of cooperation of our nation with our traditional allies and reducing environmental regulations.

It seems that many other Americans also don't like some of the president's behavior but very much like his ideas. I struggle to convince my liberal friends that it is possible for someone to dislike the president's behavior but to like his ideas; and those people will support him unconditionally because of his ideas, not because of his personal behavior. If we keep our conversation at the level of ideas, we might disrespect each other less.

Diary of 'Anne Frank'

provides insight about Trump

I finished reading about the migrant children in cages in Homestead. I decided to re-read "Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl." I finished reading about the families in Lake Worth hiding and blocking windows so no one can see in because they were worried about ICE agents. Then, I finished reading "Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl." I realized the chaos in Germany after WWI gave power to the "business" man who didn't pay taxes. And he lead them.

I realized that the United States is being led by a hotel and golf course owner, slumlord, gambling casino "business "man. Does he pay pay taxes? "Anne Frank" has given us insight.

I listened to the President of the United States pick on four U.S. citizens that are actually elected officials. I listened to their rebuttal. They speak in full sentences with clear direction and diction. They are gracious.

He has only given us energy.
