That's pathetic. L
What's worse... this kind of thing happens quite often.
The legal system will fight to the bitter end to keep non-violent individuals in prison, who are guilty of a minor crime but convicted for a major crime, then turn around and let the real dangerous individuals out to ravage and plunder society until something terrible does happen.
It seems this happens all too often lately. For example, a teenager is given consensual oral sex by another teenager and faces ten years in prison... and it nearly took an act of God to get him out of that raw deal.
On the other hand, someone causes property damage, probably abuse and rape, and makes threats against someone's life, they get out of jail for Christmas vacation so they can finish the job.
