I have wondered what it would be like for Drew Peterson’s Children to be caught in the middle of the investigation and search for Stacy Peterson. I think we can all agree that no child deserves punishment for what their parents are merely suspected of doing. With respect to Peterson’s children the government ‘s conduct must be reigned in somehow.
I personally take no position on the guilt or innocence of Drew Peterson for any crime. America’s presumption of innocence is something that I’m thankful about. It’s the hallmark of a free country along with free speech and the right to keep and bear arms.
If police can establish a crime and probable cause to make an arrest that is their mission that we all must respect. A suspect’s Due Process rights to a fair trial will follow. Proven guilt will be punished under our justice system.
During an interview with Peterson's lawyer, Joel Brodsky he expressed concerns about continuing police conduct and the emotional damage that's being inflicted on the children. Brodsky wrote his own appeal for for Peterson’s children and I have his permission to publish it.
