Which brings up my second point.
The punishment has to fit the crime.
We also hear about conservative types who are just made to apologize, or not charged with any crime at all.
On a scale of 10,000 to one compared to "Hollywood" types.
And speaking of criminal wealth redistribution, not one single banker or hedgefund manager went to jail after the economic crash in 07-08.
In fact one of them was just rewarded with a job in the new Trump administration.
Any banker or hedgefund manager that engages in such criminal mischief, should have every last dime of their wealth, confiscated right down to their undershorts.
That's punishment befitting the crime.
Until that happens, I won't even entertain anyone else's opinion is on crime and punishment.
Especially anything involving cannabis laws started by racist assholes in the 1930's, still be enforced by racist assholes in 2017.
Racism may have played a critical part in how the laws were passed but you are fooling yourself if you think that is the reasoning behind them.
Nice shot at derailing the thread though.
