The August 24 Post reports that a Prince George's County jury has acquitted Oris V. Watts, 19, of Washington, DC, who was accused of first-degree murder and gun charges in the October 5, 2004, murder of Jonathan Foster in the 800 block of Southern Avenue, Oxon Hill (20745).
Council District 7 (Exum)
Legislative District 26 (Lawlah, Kelley, Patterson, Turner)
Either the Prince George's County police arrested the wrong person, or the police arrested the right person and the police and state's attorney did not convince a jury of his guilt.
Whatever the reason, our criminal justice system has once again failed the law-abiding residents of Prince George's County. The actual murderer, whether it be Watts or someone else, is somewhere out there, free to kill again.
