It's very sad that two men can be beaten half to death, and it takes over a year-and-a-half to charge those who beat them. The South Salt Lake police department needs some serious revamping, as does the District Attorney's office, and Judge Paul Maughn for binding over for trial charges against David Bell when the preliminary hearing showed that there was just no evidence against Bell. You need someone in there who will uphold the law, gather ALL the evidence, and not ASSUME and file charges against a man when there was no evidence. It cost his family members around $40,000 for legal fees, bail, etc.,(Bell's family members are still paying off credit cards for this terrible injustice), not to mention thousands of dollars paid by tax payers for the prosecution of Bell.(Jury members all said it was a travesty of justice.) The sad thing is, much is said about David Bell, but not much about his partner, who took the worst beating. Dan Fair was asleep when it all started, and woke to David being yelled at and slapped around. He was in the hospital for 3 days and almost killed. Even if police thought David was guilty of kidnapping (which he wasn't!), why weren't those neighbors arrested for the beating of Dan Fair? It's about time justice is being served!
