Only I guess this is a U.S. case. So, weird.

There are so many things that are way better to think than some rich dude that we're all jealous of.

Rollerskating girls, for example.

Not being crazy gits, for another.

Ventriloquist: You have your opinion, I have mine. And I say that I am happy at the prospect of Mr. Black rotting away in prison.

Sol: Conrad was born a Canadian but gave up his Canadian citizenship to become a British Lord. Conrad also owned a large number of newspapers in this country, which is why the Canadian media has an interest in this case.

Now the possibility of him returning to Canada has pretty much gone up in smoke as Canada would never allow a convicted felon in their country. Ah such bitter irony!!!

Whilst I would love to share this opinion, there is rather relevant quote from someone far wiser than I that is relevant:

All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing

I thought this one was a Jefferson quote, but apparently it's not him and in fact is a mis-attribution to Edmund Burke. Still true though.

Like Jerry Falwell? Remember that? Is it just me or does the imprisonment and/or death of bad people *really* make people wax philosophical?

I think you miss the point entirely. One bad guy down, next one please.

He's not down yet. Black just got bail.

I'll be happy once he gets put into jail.

"One bad guy down, next one please."

I miss nothing. If you're so devoted to wasting your own life in the mediocre "pursuit" of "bad guy(s)", then, by all means, and this is the point, move on to the next one, spread the love, and work the ladder down.

It seems like there are, at the very least, scathing indictments of men not-yet-indicted could be made in the time a circle jerk o' anger busts it's fiery loads all over a man already caught breaching social grace.

That, indictments, or at least some nice Jerry Yarnell landscapes. Art is good.

Why does the jail system condone this special treatment crap? He should be sent to General Population.

Should, should, should. As much as we recognize what people/authorities should or should not do...it's the fact that he's rich that matters here. Not morality or fairness.
