Councilman brings shame on Lake County

Councilman brings shame on Lake County

2017 Letters to the editor stock

The many disturbing attacks on women by once-venerable figures in Hollywood, Washington and beyond underscore the need for a seismic shift in thinking.

While the #MeToo movement has brought to light the sexual predators who abuse their power to silence, intimidate and disrespect women, we would be remiss if we did not hold domestic violence cases to the same standard, especially when they originate in our own backyard.

Regardless of political party, we must all denounce not only violence itself, but also the all-too frequent victim-shaming that accompanies it. The second arrest of one of our county councilmen for domestic violence casts a shadow over Lake County.

A person convicted for battery and facing five felony charges has absolutely no place in government. Shame on Lake County. We deserve better!

Chris Chyung, Dyer
