Why do we the citizens who put the people in the positions of legal authority – the very ones who decide which cases should be brought before the grand jury – accept it when cases that should be presented are not, for whatever reasons? The one that hurts the most – and presents the worst picture of our legal system – is the Donna Marie Ogletree Johnson murder case.
We know Donna Johnson was killed in a manner that was both violent and diabolical. We know there was enough evidence to make an arrest. We also know there was – and is – sufficient evidence to present the case to the grand jury.
