THE LEGAL SYSTEM OF AMERICA is becoming as ragged as a barrel of kraut. One drug offender gets a 6 months sentence while another get life without parole for the same degree of offence. A wife fire her gun over the head of her abusive husband to stop his assault in their home, and get a 20 year sentence, but the stand your ground law found killer of Treyvon Martin innocent.
Soft targets of the police are the nickel and dime dealers who get their product from the rich. They arrest and prosecute these nickel and dime street dealers that places a large tax burden on the tax payers. These arrest and imprisonment has no impact on the drug trade.
The hard targets who are the rich importers of drugs using boats and airplanes which would make a difference if stopped are avoided because of the repercussions from the high profile lawyers that they can afford. The police chief doesn’t want to lose his job. As a results, the legal system is imposing long unjust punishment on the nickel and dime people while filling the prisons and causing many more to be built. The legal system no longer display common sense.
The crazy thing is that if drugs are allowed to run freely (I promote not drugs; only a practical example) without prosecution American society would improve greatly. The legal system is causing a huge criminal problem and not reducing the problem. After all, a determination was made to make certain drugs illegal because of the negative anticipated effect on society (most are exaggerated). So, policing should not produce a worsted effect on society.
“I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.”
We must not allow for the youth to loss faith in our legal system because where there is no justice there is no peace.
