The Dumbest Thing I've Ever Seen

--story-- (but make sure you have some Tylenol around before you read it)

"An air service businessman on Monday was sentenced to eight months in federal prison for secretly videotaping Michael Jackson as the pop star flew to Santa Barbara with his attorney to surrender in a child molestation investigation."

Someone get me a can to puke in. A guy secretly tapes the child-molester; without sound mind you, and he gets 8 months in the slammer. Yet the child-molester who was getting taped can mess around with little boys and not have to spend one day in prison.

Now let me say, what this guy did; taping Jacko, wasn't right. And yes it was punishable. But why does he get 8 months in prison for taping someone without sound, yet a child-molester does not have to go to prison at all!? Why are the priorities in courtrooms so off? The scales of justice in this country are about as balanced as Fox News. Since when was taping someone worse than hurting a child?

Unfortunately, this kind of event isn't isolated. Too often are child-molesters under-punished, and other crimes, not nearly as bad receive much worse punishment.

And no one seems to care. We're too worried about flag burning and stem-cell research to notice what has happened to our legal system. But maybe it's not just the courts that have their priorities off, maybe it's us too. When banning flag burning is more important than keeping kids safe from these monsters, maybe we have to look at ourselves and wonder.

The media needs to change their focus, the politicians need to change their focus, we need to change our focus, and the legal system needs to change their focus. Put on some glasses America.

    I think we can focus on all those things, Cody, but since you have written this I'm sure you know about the President speech yesterday regarding "Jessica's Law." At last something is being done and I think this will make a huge difference. An actual data base where all the states who participate can keep in touch with one another is going to force known pedophiles to register. That's never been done before and is bound to help.

    Is it possible to top that? 3D bifocals?
