    i think it's pretty unreasonable to expect jail time just because this kid stole some beer from walmart, drank enough to blow a .24 and then killed 4 people, paralyzed one and severely injured another.
    being irish, he had an abiding sense of tragedy, which sustained him through temporary periods of joy.

    Okay...

    "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

    Ephesians 6:12

    As an aside, if ever in all your wanderings on this earth you get the opportunity to do something terrible to the government corporate entities of Rexburg PD or City of Rexburg, Idaho, USA - do it. They're monsters.

    White & *Affluenza* means innocent of mass-murder

    Today


    Texas drunk-driving teen who killed 4 and seriously injuring 2 given probation

    http://news.msn.com/crime-justice/se...reck-stirs-ire

    A judge's decision to give 16-year-old Ethan Couch 10 years of probation for the fatal accident sparked outrage from relatives of those killed.


    Authorities said the teen and friends were seen on surveillance video stealing two cases of beer from a store.

    He had seven passengers in his Ford F-350, was speeding and had a blood-alcohol level three times the legal limit, according to trial testimony.

    His truck slammed into the four pedestrians, killing Brian Jennings, 43, Breanna Mitchell, 24, Shelby Boyles, 21, and her mother, Hollie Boyles, 52.

    A defense team psychologist said the teen who drove drunk and killed four people suffered from "affluenza," a condition where a person feels shielded from problems by money ... and is actually the parents fault for spoiling him.

    The psychologist was not a witness and this crap should never have been allowed in court. I remember that I drove drunk when I was young and it was only blind luck that prevented a tragedy but if something had happened it would have been my responsibility. I also remember that other "victim" of "influenza", Sen. Ted Kennedy and his victim, Mary Jo Kopechne.

    In my opinion the judge was wrong. The boy should have done time. Not life in prison but serious time.
    Depends ... Personhood may allow a woman to plea-out to life without parole instead of death row for the capital-murder of a zygote.

    What is a zygote?

    Edit: Okay, I'll answer it. Although I'll admit I don't understand what the point of Exotix silly statement was a zygote is a single cell. One cell. Never has a single cell been the subject of a capital murder trial. Of course, zygote has become in LibSpeak to mean a baby.

    But, that makes Exotix strange statement totally off topic and nonsensical. Imagine that.

    Personhood says life begins at the moment of conception ... can you imagine that ... life begins in the womb before the woman knows it.

    If only the cops had just shot him on the scene. They can do that now you know. He just has to have an sandwich shaped like a gun or a felt tip marker in his pocket.
