After Trial Bummer

Bill W said...
It is important for us to remember that, as far as the law is concerned, Andrew Dalzell is a suspect, and only that, in this case. If you ask me if I believe he is guilty, I would say, "Yes," but that is an opinion, not a fact. Let us be careful we do not get sued.
For several years I have seen my friends gather at the courthouse with signs and banners, talking to reporters, and doing all manner of things to bring publicity to this case.
To many of us, such efforts have gone unrewarded.
But I don't think so.
It seems, to many of us, that someone has literally gotten away with murder, and that can be most discouraging.
But the case is not closed yet.
We have raised our voices high, produced posters and buttons, and now even a website. Let's not end it here. For those who feel that we have done all that we could, and have nothing to show for it, I suggest you start writing.
This site has been open for several months now, and there are still only 4 comments posted in it.
I have seen an impressive show of enthusiasm among many of my closest friends in the Chapel Hill and Carrboro area, and I hope to see it continue. I see no reason why we should give up.
If you are tired of doing the same old thing over and over again, that didn't seem to do very much, then perhaps it's time to try another approach.
While I would strongly discourage getting vigilante about it, let us look for more positive ways to remember our dear friend.
I am sure in my heart we can all do that.

Thank you Anonymous
Sometimes just a few words can mean so much.
I wrote this at a time when my friends were all bummed out after the judge dismissed the case, letting Dalzell walk.
It was a very sad time for all of us.
I was trying to rekindle the flame, but it didn't work.

I officially became website manager for FDK just last June. The first thing I did was hire a new website designer. All the blog posts before that time were re-dated to when they were included in the new site, so don't let the date of the post confuse you.

I was feeling disappointed in my friends for not making a comment also. I guess they were too bummed out to say anything.
Thank you for being the one to respond.
