A Sad Lesson in American Justice 2

The Big Lead and I are on the same page about the American legal system:
One of the two clowns who stole Lance Armstrong’s bike is getting three years in prison for second-degree burglary and grand theft. This is the moment where you refer to Donte Stallworth getting 30 days in the slammer.
To review:
  • Be a famous person and kill someone while driving drunk > 30 days in jail.
  • Be a regular person and steal a bicycle from a famous person > 3 years in jail.
I guess the bike robbers didn't "accept full responsibility for his actions."

That's fucked up.

  1. If the guy would have accidentally killed someone while riding Lance's stolen bike, would he have gotten less time?
