Letters | IS THERE AN ARGUMENT FOR DIMASI’S EARLY RELEASE?

No compassion, given long line of corrupt public servants

I was disgusted by your editorial suggesting that Salvatore DiMasi deserves compassion and should be given early release from prison (“DiMasi deserves consideration for ‘compassionate release,’ ” March 22). Our politics and government are corrupt. It seems as if every day we read stories in your paper outlining the latest betrayal by our so-called public servants.

Our corrupt system makes it difficult to ensure that corrupt public officials will be punished in a way that the common citizen would be. For the Globe to promote compassion for DiMasi only tells me that your paper is part of the problem, not part of the solution.
