Attn: Raven Kazen;

The innocence lost on that fateful day will never be forgotten.  I am writing to protest the release of Ricky Carter from prison.  I have an 8 year old daughter that I cherish and want to keep safe from any tragedy that might come her way.  RICKY CARTER is a risk that I am not willing to take.  I knew these girls personally and I cannot imagine the grief that these parents have had to deal with.  Letting him out of prison now would be an injustice to not only the families but to the girls themselves.  What would they say if they were still here and it was a sibling that had passed away.  THEY WOULD ALL BE OUTRAGED AT THE CONSIDERATION THAT IS BEING GIVEN RICKY CARTER.  There are people who have had drugs in their possession, or not paid their traffic tickets that have been in prison longer- WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO.  These were four parentsí babies!!!!   I am willing to forgive this man for what he did but he should have to think about it for quite a while longer before he gets to go on his next hunting trip.  He has not paid his debt to society yet because this community is not done grieving for these girls.  Five years is not enough for four lives to be taken.  Let him think about this for much longer and let him contact these families in searching for forgiveness and remorse.  I urge you to consider keeping where he belongs away from our children and where he can think about the consequences of his actions. 


In loving memory,

Christi Clark
