I Hate to Be Right.
Ironically, following my previous rant, I found out yesterday the fate of the person who left our boys to die. It was disheartening, because as angry as I was ,a part of me could not be, the outcome was no surprise. Actually, it was exactly what I had expected, but it still stings. 6 counts of animal cruelty, 6 counts!, and the plea submitted was the same as if it would have been a traffic violation.
“Deferred Prosecution”, which is used for speeding tickets all time, is a program you can enter into by paying a fee. Then if you don’t get charged with another crime like the one you are in trouble for after a period of time they DISMISS all charges. Like it never happened.
One year Deferred Prosecution was the deal. So basically, rolling through a stop sign and cruelty to animals seem to fall in the same category of severity. Sad.
