I feel that just because the person had "standing in the community" does not give them the privilege of secrecy. A crime is a crime, and all should be treated equal under the law. I didn't give 6 yrs. of my life defending this idea {USN}, just to have it applied only to those who don't have "standing in the community".

5 Stars - I want to know what others found amazing.
4 Stars - I want to find out why it's liked for the most part, but not without faults.
3 Stars - I want to understand why the business is neither loved nor hated.
2 Stars - I want to learn why the weaknesses outweigh the strengths.
1 Star - I want to know why anybody says they are completely dissatisfied with the business.
