Let me ask this of your readers: Were you or your friends, kids, parents or grandparents ever bullied? When victims of bullying complained, did they themselves get in trouble?
Well, the West Virginia legislature has set up a system that ultimately punishes victims of bullying and glorifies the bullies. It is hard on 75 year olds to be mercilessly bullied.
Is there no relief?
Please, let the Governor and the legislature know that you heard it from me that old ladies are being bullied right here in this county. Please ask them why the legislature stops law enforcement from protecting old people from bullies. Tell them it is time to take a serious look at balancing bullies’ rights vs. old people’s rights.
Old people living in Charleston don’t have this problem. Our senior citizen Governor and numerous aged legislators and others with the power to stop the bullying here might care more about us if they had to live like we do. But they don’t have to live like we do, of course. They have the power to live in peace without fear – so they live in peace without fear.
Is there to be no justice for us? No inalienable right to pursue happiness and live in tranquility, or at least to live without fear in our own homes?
