I kind of chased a story around this morning. I didn’t write it, I was browsing the sports and caught a headline.
The line was about a guy clobbering the bride groom after the wedding. That sounded intriguing. Why.
But I continued reading about football players and monkeys, football coaches and the revolving door of opportunities for them, and hockey players getting injured.
(I’m not really sure hockey players are worthy of special reports of injuries – they should simply put the whole blessed team on the IR at the start of the season and forget about it.)
THEN I returned to the bride groom thingy. It had gotten away from me. I did, eventually, find it. It’s funny in sad sort of way and I do not agree with the sentence of the assualter. Not even. It is too long.
Wichita man sentenced for attacking groom on wedding day
Oliver Bradwell sentenced to 45 months in prison
The restitution alone, if paid of course, would be penury for the perp. Two years of probation (supervision) after.
The military system has a neat way of saying it. “Pay and Allowances”. That’s part of the sentencing for mil grades.
If the Democrats continue their power surge, the government receiving all credits earned by a citizen, we may see such a system. Can you imagine a court saying we will allow you to continue free, however you will forfeit your welfare check three-quarters, your rent subsidy by half and receive curtailed food stamp benefits – meaning you will receive two meals a day from the food kitchen only.
This will continue for one year, and the completion of rehabilitation course three.
As attractive as that might sound I don’t really want a Liberal world.
