Two Letters I Invite You All to Write

Howard S. Boney, Jr.

Tarboro, NC 27886

 

Dear Mr. Boney,

Last summer I was one of millions of Americans who heard about the murder of Tyler McMillan on the news. Since then his story has haunted me and I often remember the cruel torture this sweet boy endured before he died. Any parent or step-parent who can commit such a crime is beyond comprehension. Something has to change. If we don’t ensure that Tyler gets justice we are just as guilty as those who ignored his cries for help. Now one of Tyler’s killers has been released on bond – free to have contact with children – including her own daughter who could be called to testify against her! How can a child who has feared for her life find the strength to stand up and testify against a dangerous parent who has been set free after committing such a crime? We as a society are failing on every level to protect our children and act justly! Mr. Boney, you yourself have said, “As your District Attorney, I have promoted the rights of victims for more than twenty-six years. Child abuse is a crime in which all of society becomes its victim. Our children are our hope and our future.” Those are wonderful words, but if you fail to prevent Tyler’s killer from manipulating the system those words are meaningless. Please appeal for an immediate restraining order to prevent Sandra McMillan from any form of contact with her daughter. I am one of many, many people who want Justice For Tyler. But justice doesn’t just happen on it’s own. We must ensure it. Please do the right thing. The world is watching.

Dear Judge Fitch,

Last summer I was one of millions of Americans who heard about the murder of Tyler McMillan on the news. Since then his story has haunted me and I often remember the cruel torture this sweet boy endured before he died. Any parent or step-parent who can commit such a crime is beyond comprehension. Something has to change. If we don’t ensure that Tyler gets justice we are just as guilty as those who ignored his cries for help. Now one of Tyler’s killers has been released on bond – free to have contact with children – including her own daughter who could be called to testify against her! How can a child who has feared for her life find the strength to stand up and testify against a dangerous parent who has been set free after committing such a crime? We as a society are failing on every level to protect our children and act justly! Mr. Fitch, you are referred to as ‘Your Honor’. Our society affords honor to the men and women who sit in judgement and ensure justice. Your honor has not been earned by personal morality or professional accomplishment. It is bestowed by the people, borrowed if you will, so that you will in turn bestow honor on innocent victims by granting them justice. Please do the honorable thing and grant an immediate restraining order to prevent Sandra McMillan from any form of contact with her daughter. I am one of many, many people who want Justice For Tyler. But justice doesn’t just happen on it’s own. We must ensure it. Please do the right thing. The world is watching.
