This man did nothing wrong. He hurt absolutely no one, yet he gets a longer sentence than many murderers or rapists.

It is the Mississippi Attorney General that is the real criminal here!

Not surprised. A white man can steal $1,000 from 1,000 people and get away with a white collar sentence of practically nothing. But a black man in Mississippi stealing less than a hundred dollars from a multimillion dollar company gets a near life sentence!
