Save the pity

Over the course of this year, I’ve read how Scott Krause was a caring and sensitive individual from friends, his ex-wife, etc. I feel bad for them because they’ve lost someone they used to know, but Scott Krause is still here and Drew is not.

The Union has made its point that meth destroyed his life, but The Union is failing in giving the whole story. I would like to see reporting on why the legal system was so lax in putting Scott Krause in jail long before he was free to commit his crimes. There will be another Scott Krause, tragically, as long as the judicial system in Nevada County continues to grant freedom to people who are clearly a threat to themselves and society. There is no alleged in Drew’s death, and my hope is you will report the facts of how Scott Krause made deliberate choices before and during that night a year ago. Without such reporting, we will be left to believe Scott Krause is a poor, delusional, drug addict who shouldn’t be held accountable for his actions. In portraying Scott Krause as a victim, you dishonor my friend and his memory.
