In response to an article you published on March 1 about allegations against Mary Reid: First, I have known Reid personally for more than 30 years and find it impossible to believe that she would ever do anything like the three females are accusing her of doing. She has always been a person of great integrity and would never involve herself in any kind of inappropriate behavior.
Second, I think it’s unfair for you to publish comments by people claiming to be victims in which their allegations have not been proven by anyone other than the government, whic is always going to side with so-called victims because it’s the safe thing for them to do. These comments only hurt people’s reputations that haven’t been proven guilty.
Overall, I think this article was one-sided and unfair to someone who is an upstanding citizen and a person of great character.
