Fisher deserves benefit of doubt in community

TumwaterAugust 19, 2012 

I am upset by the treatment by The Olympian and the Olympia community towards Troy Fisher due to the recent events.

Troy, to date has not been charged with any crime. He is a pillar of this community and has given many people hope in times of sorrow and hopelessness.

He has inspired artistry in so many areas of art like composition, acting, directing and musical direction. He is an inspirational artist that creates a world of love and artistry, all within the same breath.

Please let the justice system work and let him be cleared of all wrongdoing by those who are on a fishing expedition to ruin his good name.

There is a painful future to this whole situation that may very well manifest itself because people jump to conclusions before any charges are filed and before any conviction becomes evident.

He is a good man that deserves the benefit of the doubt.

The Olympian is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
