  • Albert Clement....I agree. Being arrested for the same thing again and AGAIN being found not guilty leaves me with no faith in our justice system or our community whatsoever. Disappointed and angry that he is out and able to continue to do harm to others. He won't stop. He has been doing these things for a very long time and keeps getting away with it.
