I really don’t understand the “justice” system it doesn’t seem very just….?
Question by micki: I really don’t understand the “justice” system it doesn’t seem very just….?
can someone please explain this to me. How can a man who was caught driving drunk for the second time and crashed his motorcycle into a cop car and then proceeded to try and beat up the cop. He got 1 year in county jail. The second guy broke into a house stole an x-box and an i-pod (first offense) unarmed and got 3 years in PRISON. Where is the justice in that? These two people live in the same state as well.
Answer by Citicop
2nd offense DWI and simple assault are lower crimes (misdemeanors).
Breaking into a person’s home and violating their space is more serious (a felony).
If the DWI crash had injured someone, it might be different, but courts consider DWI to have a lower mental state required (you could do it “by accident”) where you have to PLAN to break into a person’s house and steal things.
I have no problem with either sentence.
