Anybody else notice in the paper today that of the 10-12 people sentenced, not a single one got any jail time ?
One was even a persistent felon and got off with no additional time.
Another stole 10,000 dollars worth of stuff and was only sentenced to pay back 1,500. Who is going to pay the victim the other 8,500 ?
Why do we even bother to have a police force when the judges let everybody right back out on the street ?
Why do we bother having laws if they carry no consequences ?
If Phil Shepard is not going to do his job, he needs to go.

I agree. I've got 10 complaints against a fag who literally tried to punch me in front of KSP THEN said 'I should've killed you when I had the chance.'... Now since I'm a guy, they've done nothing. NOW, if I had a vagina... Don't tell me they'd still be sitting on their asses. I'm just waiting to die. They won't do shit!!!

What did you go to this person to make them say that to you. Nothing rt?

nah, Must have been pretty bad.

Maybe it was some dad whose child you hurt? Maybe some friend with whose wife you cheated? Maybe somebody you called a "fag"...like you just did.

I'm sure if a real threat was made in front of KSP, something woulda happened... Unless it was justified? But hey ... Its Always easier to blame the system than the man in the mirror, rt?

I agree they slap people on the hand then wonder why they ae back at crime again.

I'm guessing it is all designed on the catch and release principle.
If they actually lock the damn criminals up, they won't have anybody left to catch, prosecute, defend, or judge.
Turning criminals loose is their job security. Its how they keep their court dockets full and keep getting bigger budgets year after year.
Nothing else makes sense. Why else would they let a dozen convicted criminals go right back out to pursue their chosen profession? Nobody in their right mind would believe that all of them actually deserved another chance.
