Forget the preferential treatment argument you’ve heard ad nauseum. Forget the fact that Michael Vick killed dogs and not people, or was the last to confess to his guilty transgressions, however absurd and sadistic they were.
Donte killed a man. Drunk. He deserves more than 30 days in jail.
I hate writing those words. I really don’t think anything can be worse than compounding the punishment a man has deserved and been sentenced, with some more he doesn’t. But Donte definitely deserves more. Ten years probation seems like pittance for a man running stupidly in the streets. However stupidly.
You know what normal folks do when they see crazy people in the street, they slow down or better yet, stop. What they don’t do? Flash their lights.
I will not apologize for the justice system meting out a punishment that is in accordance with the law and sentencing guidelines. That’s just ridiculous. If anything, it highlights that there are changes needed at the third branch of government.
Now, whose ready to take that battle to congress?
