The Lubbock Criminal Defense Lawyers Association applauds the decision made by the Commissioners Court to hold a public vote July 25th on a resolution regarding the removal of the monument. However, the delay may have a negative impact on citizens who trust our justice system to be a fair and unbiased one.
We trust, despite the delay, the Commissioners will make the right decisionand commend their willingness to make their positions known to the public.
Again, our organization does not merely request that the monument be removed. We demand it be removed. Each additional day the monument remains standing is one day too long. LCDLA will take appropriate remedial action after the July 25th vote, if necessary.
