Two Crooked Judges Ruin Thousands of Lives
Thank God for America's judicial branch. Our executive and legislative branches may be more crooked than Lombard Street, but judges are much less prone to bribery and corruption.
The following tragedy could only happen in some Godforsaken Third World shithole. Two judges — or whatever passes for a “judge” in this tinpot dictatorship — sentenced thousands of teenagers to long prison terms for minor offenses. Their motives had nothing to do with “law and order” or being “tough on crime.”
It was bribery, pure and simple. These judges got millions of dollars in kickbacks from the owners of the two private prisons where these “offenders” were sent. Some of these “trials” didn’t last more than a minute or two. It was more like a conveyor belt than a court of law, with thousands of teenage suspects being herded through the courtroom and straight into prison.
The two crooked “judges” — Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan — are now facing up to seven years in prison. Seven years, that’s it???
Then again, seven years in one of those backward third world prisons might teach them a lesson. Normally I’d be against prisoners being stomped by other inmates or tortured by guards. But in the case of these two douchebags — go for it. Seven years of brutal gang rapes might still be too good for these two flaming assholes (oops, pun alert).
Again, thank God for our judicial system. A horrifying tragedy like this could never happen here in the land of……..oh, wait…
