sadly money and possesions appear to be valued more than life
Our justice system is all wrong! You can rob a bank and get 25 years, you can rape someone and be out in 2 years! It really doesnt make any sence at all!
Its a sign of the times where someone's life does not have the value it should have.<br />
A life should be sacrosanct but the Judges don't get it.
I M here in uk from 3 years and didn't understand law and rules in here.
Back in the Reagan era in the US, you went to jail a lot longer for bank robbery, 20-30 years, than for murder, about 7 years.
The justification is that someone who steals is more likely to be a career criminal than someone who kills one person.<br />
The reality is that the legal system is completely unjust and ba<x>sed on flawed models.
Here in the USA a man shot another man because he was texting in the theater When they got into an argument the man that was texting threw popcorn at the man complaining. Which prompted the 71 year old ex cop to pull out a gun and shoot and kill the popcorn thrower. His lawyer says the guy felt threatened and was scared and defending himself. I believe it boils down to criminal lawyers get paid the big bucks so they work harder to get people off. Sometimes I wish the judge that allows that has to publish his name and address so people can know who these idiots are
