The Star will not criticize Prosecutors for failing to give even a cursory glance at evidence.

The Star will not criticize Jackson County Prosecutors for failing to prosecute and put away a woman after two arson fires. Woman burns a third nail salon that results in the death of two firefighters.

The Star writes a lengthy analysis after deaths but will not criticize Mike Sanders or Peter Baker.

Other prominent arson fires have been ignored or covered up like the Schutte Lumberyard arson fire.

Where is the outrage by Hellwing, Krapke, Sanchez and Hoopz?
