"Affluenza" Teen Sentenced to 720 days in Jail for killing four people in a DUI. Even after he and his mom fled the country to avoid prosecution. Less than two years is a fucking disgrace. They should be ashamed...

This shit boils my blood. Hopefully his fellow inmates use those 720 well and make him pay a real price for his crimes.

I'm on The Punishers side on this one.

Like the man said- money talks and something other than justice is for sale.

Fucking hell this is bullshit. Absolute fucking bullshit.

What the fuck is wrong with the legal system when you can kill 4 people and then flee the country and still only end up with 720 days.

I'll admit the prison system in America is a fucking disaster, and royally sucks at its main purpose. But still some people need to be punished.

Why is it that money seems to be the answer to every problem?

I'll sort this out in a but, this just pisses me off.

This is bullshit. Since they both fled clearly to avoid, they should both be harshly punished. It's amazing to me that our leader got worse than this for uploading a friggin movie.

That just goes to show you how insanely effed our country's priorities are: kill 4 people AND FLEE 720 days. Uploading a movie that makes rich companies unhappy: pretty much that time plus A SHITLOAD of bullshit fines.

When digital movies and shows count for worse than PEOPKES LIVES!!!! You know your priorities are massively fucked! Just sayin...
