    It seems to be fairly standard for the offences he was actually convicted of, which is all he can be sentenced for. The main issue there was the lack of evidence preventing a more serious charge being brought and that seems far too messy a situation to really understand from the outside.

    Any prisoners who are perceived to be at greater risk from some of the violent thugs in prisons are given special treatment to reduce that risk. I not convinced that's necessarily beneficial to them though.

    Personally I think prison should be about rehabilitation and deterrent but if you want some kind of generic punishment too (or instead!), that should be formally specified and implemented. Frankly, I consider the whole idea of dropping unpopular prisoners in the general population and hoping something nasty happens to them (behind close doors so we don't need to think about it) as cowardly.

    So how does this work? If the judge doesn't vote your way, he must a Democrat. If he's a Republican, he must be insane or goofy? It couldn't possibly be that some right wingers love to protect the rich?

    What about non-rich rapists that have been given even lesser sentences than this one, in Liberal regions?

    Exactly how is THIS case an example of that, or is this just a situation if you ignoring facts to push an agenda?

    By the looks of the facts in this it seems more of an example of the pitfalls of a legal system where the burden is on the prosecution. Without the mother or daughter testifying against him it seemed the legal case wasn't strong enough to justify anything greater than what he got.

    If you want my opinion I think all judges are nuts - and there is plenty of precedence to prove this.

    Man, I live with 3 brothers, I'm the oldest and the youngest is 21, and we party sometimes, however my 21-year-old brother does have friends that are 18 or so, and they have friends that are 16-17.... Not to mention to make ends meet a few years back I had to manage a "burger joint" that was basically nothing but 16-year-old girls.

    It's really not my social circle but I do enjoy partying with my brothers from time to time when I have nothing planned...

    It's not exactly like I hang out with 16-year-olds, they just happen to be around from time to time, and usually I'm kicking them out of the house for not being old enough to drink or at least 18 - I don't need any problems with cops or parents.

    Many progressive judges would rather throw a child rapist in a mental hospital than prison.

    There are many instances where Libbo judges didn't even do that much. But, have the Libbos nutted up about it?

    It's quite sickening that the Libbo outrage over this is just because the dude is rich and not because he molested a little girl. Quite the telling commentary of the Libbos.
