    Drunk-Driving Teen Kills 4 People; Receives No Jail Time

    FORT WORTH, TX — A juvenile court judge has gotten some people upset after she sentenced 16-year-old Ethan Couch to 10 years’ probation for the drunk driving crash that killed four people.

    Back in June, Breanna Mitchell’s SUV had a flat tire so she pulled over to the side of the road. Hollie Boyles, 52, and her daughter, Shelby Boyles, 21, lived nearby and had came out to help Mitchell. Brian Jennings, 41, was driving by and also stopped to see if he could lend a hand.

    Unfortunately for all of them, 16-year-old Ethan Couch was also on the road, driving drunk. He and some of his seven passengers had stolen some beer from a Walmart hours earlier and were speeding when Couch lost control of his truck, left the road and struck Breanna’s SUV.

    Breanna, Hollie, Shelby and Brian were not in the road when the collision occurred, but they were all killed on impact and thrown 50 to 60 yards away. One of Couch’s passengers suffered serious injuries while another remains paralyzed and only able to communicate by blinking his eyes.

    It would later be revealed that Couch had had a blood-alcohol level three times the legal limit, plus traces of Valium were found in his system. He would eventually plead guilty to four counts of intoxication manslaughter and two counts of intoxication assault causing serious bodily injury.

    One of Couch’s attorneys added that there was no rehabilitation available to Couch if he went to prison, and that his family had agreed to pay for a lengthy stay at a rehabilitation facility that can cost more than $450,000 a year.

    State District Judge Jean Boyd agreed with the defense, and to the disbelief of some of the victim’s family members, ordered Couch to receive therapy at the long-term, in-patient facility and serve 10 years probation. No jail unless he violates his probation, at which time he could be sent to prison for 10 years.




    Money talks, the guilty walk.

    10 years after a probation violation, hell even that's pussy.



    Yet another failure of the US Justice System, where the innocent are caged, and the guilty run free.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    And then you have kids getting put in jail for joking on the internet.

    This justice system is great.

    "Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.”

    I don't like pulling the race card, but I doubt he would have gotten off with such a break if he was black. Even if his parents were rich. Especially considering this is in Texas (though not nearly as bad as other states). Not agreeing with Poison's post or anything though.

    Fair enough, as I know it would most likely turn out that way. The kid should be locked up regardless of his race.
