Severe punishment is only for the rich. Look at Enron, those guys stole mad money, and they may get 6 Mos. in prison. A black guy walks in and robs the 7-11, he gets 10-20 years. Something isn't right about the judicial system.

WOW, I wonder if they made Laura Bush do that when she killed at kid ??? Oh yeah I forgot punishment is only for working class criminals ... Texas sucks .... Hard !!!
Comparing this guy to Laura Bush is asinine. This guy was racing well in excess of the speed limit, while Mrs. Bush simply ran a stop sign. And it was before this current time of stiff punishments for vehicular crimes.

"The Enron gang didn't get near enough time.... How many hundreds of people where robbed of there retirement because of them ..."
Retirement?! Pensions are a thing of the past, they suck! They are the worst thing ever invented, because they don't make share prices go up and involve responsibility that one of the poor, hard-pressed corporations has to take instead of these bad, bad greedy pinko-commie workers (ugh, it hurt typing that word!) that only want more and more of the blessed and good-hearted CEOs' money!
your average neoliberalist dimwit

Canarsie, yes, a judge can add on to a jury sentence, or even reverse it is he/she wants to. The only exception is the death penalty. That MUST be given by a jury of peers, AND it must be a unanimous vote.
That criminal justice course I took last year (and the one I just started) are already coming in handy !
