@Jolly said in The Other Side:
Ok...So you think somebody should serve three years in prison for a non-violent act?
Were these sentences mandatory or decided by the judges?
Again, in no way could these people think what they were doing was okay and allowed. They weren't innocent sightseers.
I dont really know if they should have gotten three years or not, but a wide variety of judges of both political sides seem to think so. This is not just one isolated judge making one isolated decision.
(BTW, I am sure a lot of drug posessers would love to have only received a three year sentence for their non violent crime.)
