don't want no short people--- in jail
I oppose Affirmative Action. I oppose government set-asides, quotas, unequal rights in the name of equality, or any other kind of special privileges granted to political grievance groups because of their "victim" status. When government engages in that kind of bullshit, it doesn't solve any problems. It merely creates more "victims," who whine about wanting THEIR share of "fairness," too.
Why is anyone suprised or outraged to see this kind of logic coming from a judge? It's not idiocy. It's COMPASSION!
A judge's decision to sentence a 5-foot-1 man to probation instead of prison for sexually assaulting a child has angered crime victim advocates who say the punishment sends the wrong message.
See? The guy may be a piece of child-molesting scum, but he's SHORT, and when deciding his sentence, the judge was correct to consider the "unique challenges" he could face in prison. After all, he might be molested in there.
"I'm concerned about the message this sends to victims and perpetrators," said Marla Sohl with the Nebraska Domestic Violence Sexual Assault Coalition, adding that it shows more concern is being placed on the criminal and his safety in prison than the victim.
When you have one victim's group arguing with another victim's group about who is the bigger victim, you NEED a judge to figure it out. As President of the Southeast Jawja Organization of Short People with Thinning Hair and Funny Accents, I applaud this decision.
I also wonder how I can use it to keep MY Cracker ass out of jail one of these days.
