Dear District Attorney Beth McCann, 

As a member of the community, I am committed to upholding the rights and values of all people. I stand in support of the decision to drop all charges against Stephan Long. It is evident that Mr. Long was exercising his legally recognized right to defend himself in a situation of clear and immediate threat. Recognizing and upholding this right is not only a matter of legal justice but also a reflection of our collective values as a community that prioritizes the safety and rights of its members. 

As a citizen, it is my duty to ensure that the rights that myself and other citizens voted upon and established by our community are respected and protected. The dismissal of all charges against Stephan Long is a necessary step towards affirming your commitment to justice and the rule of law, ensuring that individuals are not unjustly penalized for acting in their own defense.

I hereby express my full support in the dismissal of all charges against Stephan Long and urge my fellow community members to join me in this stance, advocating for a fair and just resolution in accordance with the principles we have pledged to uphold.
