  1. If you need any more evidence on how bad the Vermont judicial system is broken, here it is…. in the second story, Law enforcement finds these two individuals with a host of infractions and lawlessness: A criminally suspended driver’s license, in violation of a court-ordered curfew, possession of crack cocaine, criminal DLS, violation of conditions of release, possessing a firearm due to the conviction of a violent crime. and they were issued citations to appear in court and released? Wait, What? and we wonder why Vermont is slipping into lawlessness and dystopia. where is the outrage?
