  • If you think that is bad then you should read this newspaper clipping about a guy who got 20 years for being behind in his child support. Heres the link....

  • Because our government is stupid and our justice system fails us.

    Here's a story about a teen who killed herself after being bullyed. She was being picked on because she accused a boy who raped her, of rape!

    His charges were dropped. She got no justice.

  • Our government was developed by humans. Humans aren't perfect, so neither is the system. Unfortunatley sometimes justice isn't always served up the way we see fit. It's a hard part of life. Personally I see child killers are getting the death penalty where I come from..and pediphiles can get pretty much life sentences. I have seen cases where they get 45 years. Same with rapists.
    And if that statement was totally true, why are there so many repeat drug dealers on the street still? Why are there people still robbing houses and banks, that were let out to do so again?

  • @ musicmom..i have seen many people get life sentences or life..but get out with time served or good behaivor/model citizens clauses in the judicial system...tho i cant understand why the 3 strikes or rockerfeller law can still apply to drug dealers but there is no 3 strikes law for pedophellia @ least not that i have read of in my criminology law books..

  • the 3 strikes law doesn't apply to drug dealing. It' only applies to all crimes commited against another person, such as burglary, theft, fraud, etc. And pedophelia and violent crimes ARE included in that. I think you are misunderstanding something here. I am very informed on the 3 strike laws and it's policies due to the incarceration of a loved one. And I don't feel that sorry for them. If they know they could get life in prison for their crimes, why knowingly commit the crime again? They make the choice.
    They don't get out on time served or good behavior in prison, they are granted parole by certain conditions. If they are sentenced to life, time served is when they die. The manson family all are model prisoners, and they are still rotting in prison.

  • Our justice system constantly fails us.... I got beat multiple times by the father of my child and called the police... he was never arrested... and one time I was since he had a "scratch" on his arm because I finally defended myself... now I'm getting out and he stole everything from me and is making me out to be the bad guy... He is a foot taller and 100lbs bigger than me... so obviously he can overpower me... I have no faith in our system anymore
