Should the men who gave pot to toddlers be allowed to take a plea deal moments before trial?

Does anyone else think if they wait till just before trial, the cost has been accrued, the juror's have taken off work and expended time/effort. These men should be tried, and the plea bargain should be taked off the table? He should be tried and held to the fullest extent. My opinion. What do you think?

  • I didn't read it but I get the idea by what you already said. That's disturbing! The men should both sit in prison for a great deal of time. Why do people DO these stupid things?!

  • A plea offering is often much cheaper in the long run than a trial... At least this way he'll be getting some form of a punishment rather than risking the chance that he'll get off!

  • Yep, these morons don't live too far from me, so it's my tax dollars they just wasted...I think someone should be on trial for kicking the crap out of these morons, instead of them being able to plea bargain like that...just so you know, I've been a nanny for several years, in addition to having grown kids, and it just makes my blood boil to keep seeing this video on TV. What was this Mom thinking...she had to know her teenager was doing this!..And if she didn't know..then why the hell not? Stupid clueless parents just get on my nerves...I've worked for a couple, and it's so hard to keep my mouth shut sometimes.
