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.

At least, that is what the so called 'Justice' System is saying in this case, and has been saying in many other cases.

A poor/average person speeding drunk - but not being in an accident - faces real jail time, while this 'kid' can destroy lives with no real punishment. A poor/average person caught with bags of weed and/or meth faces strong prospects of prison time, but a rich spoilt brat can have heroin and cocaine, and at most face rehab. A poor/average person may face a horrible time simply by video taping a police officer on a cellphone, but a rich person can shoot his wife outside a restaurant and nothing happens.

All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.

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.
