The following is my response to your article (Aug. 28), "Fear Fails to Gag Witness to Murder."

How unfortunate it is that a man like Barry Glenn Williams, who was taken into custody and charged with murder, has been treated with more care than Patricia Lewis, the only witness who was brave enough to testify against him.

Where are the priorities of our society? Why do we pay $40,000 a year to support gang leaders so they can live adequately in our jails, while at the same time neglect to provide for people like Patricia Lewis?
