Defender’s vic jab
To public defender Sarah Burleson: The 7-year-old whose scooter was stolen had every right to be on an electric scooter. His parents gave him that right (“Creep’s lawyer mocks kid vic,” July 21).

However, your client had no right to steal the scooter for drug money. Your client did do harm, because he traumatized an innocent child by allegedly snatching the scooter from him.

Daniel Ufares is a poor excuse for a human being, using his addiction to justify allegedly steal from helpless victims like a 7-year-old boy.
And Burleson is no better than he is for mocking that boy.

UK’s med cruelty
Medical fascism is alive and well in the United Kingdom (“Fight for life,” July 18).
The heartbreaking case of critically ill Alta Fixsler is nothing new in Britain. British courts in the past have ruled against parents’ wishes to give their severely brain-injured children a fighting chance to survive.

In 2017, a London court ruled against Charlie Gard’s parents, who desperately tried to have him removed from Great Ormond Street Hospital for treatment by American doctors who said they could help him. Charlie died a few months later.

In 2018, Alfie Evans’ parents lost a court battle to have their child taken to Italy for treatment.

This is what happens when the government controls all aspects of medical care and has the power to usurp basic parental functions. The notion that strangers in black robes are better equipped than competent parents to make medical decisions for their children is stupid and dangerous.

Unless you want cases like these to occur in the United States, pray that socialized medicine does not come to America.

Harry’s tell-all
Prince Harry’s forthcoming memoir is sure to intrigue gossip-greedy royal-watchers on both sides of the pond (“Harry is the prince of tales,” July 20).

Having abandoned his princely duties, allegedly in pursuit of privacy, the embittered “spare” has clearly found his life’s purpose: publicly trashing the palace.

Harry is following in his mother’s footsteps. He does not seem to realize that the soul-baring Martin Bashir interview was acknowledged by Princess Diana as a misstep, leading to divorce, loss of her royal title and, ultimately, her tragic demise.

Road to ‘Oldspeak’
Reading The Post’s editorial “White House Newspeak” (July 21) the other day reminded me of George Orwell’s little-known appendix to 1984, “The Principles of Newspeak.”

In it, he points to the year 2050 as a kind of target date for the eradication of Oldspeak, by which he means language as we know it.

When I look at what our own loony left is trying to do to the English language, the way they twist and turn it to meet their needs, I can’t help but marvel anew at Orwell’s vision.
But then the hope that is implied: 2050 is decades away, after all, more than enough time to secure a better, more free future for our kids and grandkids.

Sign showdown
A judge in New Jersey has ordered a woman to take down anti-Biden signs because they violate local public obscenity laws, and neighbors found them irritating (“Anti-Biden signs axed,” July 18).

I have a suspicion if she had been displaying signs that said “F- - - Trump,” no one would have said a thing, and she never would have been taken to court.
