Letter: Patten’s day in court
It is heartening to see the reserving of judgment regarding allegations pertaining to a Concord city councilor (“Colleagues reserve judgments on Patten,” Monitor front page, April 26).
At this time we are immersed in an extensive debate about the Second Amendment to the Constitution. When allegations fly, it is well to remember the Seventh Amendment. This amendment does not receive the popular support it deserves. I notice that none of the several members of the council or the House quoted in the Monitor mentioned the Seventh.
Remember folks, your day in court is not a privilege, it’s a right.
THOMAS J. DUFFY
