MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Whether you agreed with the verdicts or lack thereof in the Federal bingo corruption trial – the judicial system worked.

We all have opinions based on the evidence we saw, heard or read over the past couple months.  Opinions, feelings or what your gut tells you do not hold up in a court of law.  That's a good thing.  What holds up is evidence presented and received by the jury to such a degree that a verdict can be reached.  If there is reasonable doubt– a verdict of not guilty must be reached.  That happened this week.

There are no winners or losers.  Those seven defendants that walked out of court today will be forever changed for what they went through.  Our great state of Alabama was the poster child for perceived corruption and unfortunately perception is hard to change.

So let's move on and get back to focusing time, money and energy on those positive things we are doing in our city and state.  I'm ready and I know you are too.

We appreciate your feedback.
