Rant Against Idiot Sentences and Idiot Judges
You must login to vote
Read your newspaper or watch the news. Pay special attention to the court-beat and the sentences handed out for the various offenses. I am Canadian so what I say may not apply to any other country but I suspect it does. Personal crime - like assault and its kin – will earn you a slap on the wrist. Property crime – break and enter, auto theft etc – will earn you hard time.
Every time that I hear something like a guy who is out on parole and under a restraining order getting 4 months for tossing his pregnant girlfriend to the ground and kicking her in the guts for a while (this happened in my home town about 3 months ago) it makes me want to start hunting judges.
How can we as a society expect our children to have any sort of respect for the life or person of our fellow man if the courts – whose sworn duty it is to uphold the inviolability of those very things – considers a few months a just punishment for a vicious rape or a couple of years for a murder? We can’t! And that is a large part of why society is crumbling. We have forgotten that a car or tv is easier to replace than a life and this is evidenced by the callous disregard that the courts show for personal crime.
Don’t look to Freddy Kruger or Ice Cube to find out why kids have no respect for life – look to the sentences handed down by our tribal sages.
Maybe if we started shooting idiot judges for idiot rulings some semblance of reason may enter the justice system – it may make them think, and hey, if you get caught you’ll only be gone for a couple years… just don’t steal their Beamer.
