Aww, Isn't the Justice System Sweet?


I was watching Fox 45 this morning and they were talking about how some criminal was being released from prison early on account of good behavior.

I don't get that; releasing jailbirds early for "good behavior"?

I mean, if they were so well behaved to begin with,
they wouldn't have gotten locked up from the jump. Right?

Seems to me, that in certain cases, this would do an injustice to those who may have been wronged by this inmate. This reminds me of the case of murdered actress Dominique Dunne of Poltergeist fame who was strangled to death by her boyfriend. He was convicted on manslaughter charges and sentences to 6 and a half years in prison (which was way too lenient for me) but was released after just 2 years. Why? Why was that man given any special treatment? A woman lost her entire life and he was inconvenienced for only 2? Makes no sense to me.

But once again, it seems the criminal sometimes has more rights than the victims.

Gee, aren't they nice?
Ya'll ought to be so glad I'm not running things. It would be a horse of a helluva different color.

Yeah, the legal system sucks. My step sister's murderer was out in less than 5 years. I don't understand that kind of logic.
