I wonder if this kid will survive long enough to actually be called a responsible adult

Everyone is not equal. The life of this 'kid' is worth much more than those of the four people killed and one paralyzed. After all, this 'kid' comes from a wealthy family, while the others were from more normal means.

It's true, you can buy "justice" in the US just as you can in any corrupt third world country.

I'm waiting for some idiot to start accusing you of engaging in "class warfare" or calling you a "communist" for pointing out the obvious.

As much as I despise him I think one of Lenny Bruce's famous quotes applies here:

"In the halls of justice,the only justice is in the halls"

sort of agree....I see him as a 16 yro with a new license....he should have had some time behind bars, and his driving priviledges taken away for a year or two...

He was 16; at 18 he would definitely have gone to jail, regardless of who he was, but the laws are different for under 18. Right or wrong, the laws ARE different, and the judge was probably ruling as the law required.

In 2004, this same judge gave another teen in a similiar case 20 years.

THAT teen didn't have wealthy parents.

This woman who calls herself a judge is flat out evil in front of the whole world and she doesn't give a damn. Somehow she's getting paid off, everyone knows she's getting paid off, and she knows everyone knows she's getting paid off - and she's doing it anyway.

Evil bitch.

Remember you money when you're in hell, bitch.

What do you expect when the government allows pull to influence its decisions?
