Letter: If you were charged for using a park during unconstitutional closure, charges should be dropped

I have been reading the news over the past few weeks and I am appaled how people in New Jersey have been treated as common criminals for using public parks and practising safe social distancing.  This crackdown against the people came as legitimate criminals across the state were being released from prison, but law abiding citizens were being treated as criminals for simple activities such as walking through a park, sitting on an empty beach or just out breathing fresh air.  I would like to see Governor Murphy include in his next executive order a measure to pardon those who face charges and large fines for violating his unconstitutional and un-American order.
