I’m sure my friend Bryan Ophus was acting out of friendship not by experience when he wrote the letter condoning the actions of Gina Dahl and Cyndee Peterson.
When you see first hand the way the 2 of them can twist the truth to get the out come they want not necessarily resulting in justice; you will have serous doubts about the justice system all together. The 2 of them epitomize what is wrong with the total system now.
If the people championing the cause of domestic violence had the pride they portray they would be outraged to see a young man obeying all the rules sent off to prison when he was the victim of physical violence. The girl invited him into her car to discuss problems and hit the door locks and beat the tar out of him before he could find the lock. The cops took very good pictures to prove it but Dahl and Peterson had no interest in the truth. Judge Rice put him under one million dollars bond to make sure he couldn’t assist in his defense.
No one charged with sex crimes and drugs has ever gotten as much time has he did. It was so bad the Judge originally would not hear his case because his words were; “I’ve never had a revocation hearing for some one that had no violations”. But he came around to their way of thinking.
When you mark an “X” for Dahl you have sentenced some one to prison weather they are guilty or not.
Feel free to call or e-mail me for the rest of the story. But on Election Day give a young man who is trying as hard as humanly possible to put his life in order and his teen age daughter a chance at life without looking over their shoulders for the Dahl and Peterson’s of the world waiting to exert their miss placed power.

Above is what the HDN would not print now. When Peterson was running they totally denied me the opportunity to tell the have voters what she was all about. When I was challenged on the letter I was told I would be sorry for my campaign against Peterson so Petersons last act was to take it out on my son and when that happened she latterly ran out of the court house and jumped in her car and left for Missoula leaving Dahl in charge and of course her house next door to Judge Rice.
