There seems to be something very wrong with our legal system. Trump, and people like him, didn’t just suddenly appear on the earth. For a very long time now, laws have been applied very differently depending on who you are.
If we have laws, and everyone is expected to follow them; and generally, any ordinary person should be able to understand them; then you should not have to be– nor need acquire a lawyer to reason how those laws will be applied.
Therefore, it is plain and simple bullshit what is and has been going on since this nation has been formed. If one person gets breaks, then everybody should get the same breaks.
So, No. I’m not advocating for locking everyone up. I’m advocating for the same leniency the rich and privileged seem to enjoy. You know, minimum security prisons, with the sentence of being locked up at home on “House Arrest“. Yes, House Arrest should be the default sentence or status for every American, until trial and proven guilty, ankle bracelet and all.
Then after trial, we get into the hard labor, losing limbs and ligaments, or what-not for sentencing after that point. The point I’m making: We really need to take a look at what we got going on here in America.
