This is Justice??

Bernard Ebbers gets 25 years in prison to what basically amounts to theft. Think about this, 25 years for stealing. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying he's not guilty; or even that he shouldn't go to jail. But let's have a little perspective here. This is nothing more than the "sticking it to the man" mentality. It is after all the north-east. The liberal mecca where the rich are despised, unless your name is George Sorros. Meanwhile, this pile of rat excrement is allowed bail and given the chance to murder a family and rape a little girl, not to mention making her watch while her brother was raped. The frightening part is, to some people (by some people I mean hippies and liberals) believe that Ebbers is actually the larger danger to society. Forget that three boys are gonig to get away with murder, we've got to stop those damned evil CEO's.

Joseph Duncan should never have been allowed to do this to that poor family. He should've already been in prison for the rest of his life. Now, he should be put to death, preferably in as painful a manner as humanly possible. And those guys in Arube, they won't get punished. As soon as the media bolts and the world's not watching them anymore, this'll get shoved to the back burner, and this poor girls family will never see justice done. Unless it's of the vigilante sort, which is starting to look pretty good.
