Dear District Attorney Beth McCann,

As an organization committed to the fair treatment and well-being of all people, we 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 country that prioritizes the safety and rights of its citizens.

As an organization, it is our duty to ensure that the rights voted upon and established by our community are respected and protected by holding those who enforce the law accountable. 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.

We hereby express our full support in the dismissal of all charges against Stephan Long and urge fellow organizations to join us in this stance, advocating for a fair and just resolution in accordance with the principles you have pledged to uphold.
