    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!!!

    Preaching to the choir, man. 5 months she got. Especially look at the celebrity drug users. Community service and rehab! What kind of bs is that? Non-celebs can get YEARS in prison!

    True, but with minimal sentencing. The offsetting sentences are a good idea for the childrens sake but why isn't that the case for regular folk? If I and my wife got put in jail or prison, the court would just place them with the state or if you're lucky with a family member.

    I'm not a big fan of Martha, however she sold some stock that she owned and made a few bucks by possibly getting an early tip from her broker. She didn't do any direct harm to anyone else or commit a violent crime.
    So I feel the sentence is about right and I can't see her being incarcerated with hardened criminals. That wouldn't make much sense to me. Matter of fact I think they are making an example of her because she is wealthy and famous....so possibly she got more harshly judged than other people would have. That's my 2 cents.
    The opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of the management. And the management will be happy to hear that!

    Who in the world is Martha Stewart? Sorry, I don't know any 'celebrities', but there is a saying: 'rich people don't go to jail'. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] What kind of #$%^&*-up policy that is I don't know, but I suppose its true in a way. Bribery, you know, the next day the judge gets 10X richer.

    'Off with their heads!!'

    No but seriously; wouldn't it be better to state an example using people that you read about? I mean, the impact would be greater if some celeb is given the max sentence for a say drug offense, than your average Joe that noone ever hears about, no?

    Also, do the crime, you do the time, same place as everyone else... (that are probably fed up with seeing celebs let off easy) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]
