Once again I have no personal knowledge of what the five former EPISD officials that were arrested the other day did or did not do.
What troubles me is the massive machine that has been deployed to convict them before they have their day in court.
“Today’s actions by the FBI further places EPISD on a path to recovery after years of uncertainty.”
“The actions today by the FBI allow us to further put this incident behind us.”
These statements from EPISD officials imply that the five arrestee’s deserve what is happening.
Particularly troubling is that both of the statements came from EPISD officials who are lawyers. Both of these officials have been doing good work at the district but seem to have forgotten their places in this situation.
It would have been appropriate to say something about the standards and expectations that the district has in place today, but to paint the defendants as guilty when a jury has not decided the issue is unfair.
I would hope that they stay out of it in the future and let the system work.
We deserve better
