I was reading the Martha Stewart thing today and the wife of an Enron guy the other day.
I am sick and tired of seeing people with money go to these special prisons and camps with minimal sentences. I used to get into trouble quite abit and have been to jail and prison a few times and I'll tell you what, asking a judge for leniancy wouldn't have gotten me anywhere. Nor would he care about the "good"thngs I've done. What he or she cares about is what I did wrong. Usually the don't care if you have a reason or excuse. In light of my experiences I say if you're convicted of a crime you get the same time. Furtherrmore you should have to spend time with the same people that the rest of us would have to deal with in jail. None of this tennis court BS and what-not, 1/2hr a day on the roof is all the fresh air you need and thats not everyday.
This is BS about being getting soft sentencing. In the Martha article I read, the judge said she thinks she has suffered enough and will continue to suffer. Wait a minute, I always got max terms and you know what, you think i don't suffer and further more it is harder to get a good job because of this so my family suffers as well, I am a little less than sympathetic about Marthas' suffering- multimillion dollars and she is suffering huh ?
I get sick of reading **** like this. UGH, I could spit on it!!!
