Get tough on corporate criminals

True, we are a free country but, to me, that means freedom to speak how we feel - not the freedom to change those precepts that our country has held as a basis of our founding. It is a privilege and great honor to recite the Pledge of Allegiance . I am now throughly convinced that our legal system is one big joke. Ruth T. Mobley, Hephzibah, Ga.
