Has anyone been following the story about a teen at 16 who while drunk killed 4 people and injured at least one other?  His defense team claimed his privileged upbringing made him incapable of distinguishing right from wrong and called it Afluenza.  He got ten years probation for killing 4 people?  Recently he violated his probation, now an adult, and he and his mother fled to Mexico where he was just recently extradited.

I just read today he had a previous run in with the law while driving drunk at 15.  He was caught because he was pissing in public.  Inside the car they found beer, a partially gone bottle of vodka and a naked 14 year old girl........

Yes Jed as sickening as this story is, I have been following it quite closely. I often have felt like punching the TV set I get so pissed off about it. Never imagined the Texas legal system to be so brain dead. But some sanity has prevailed finally. They are FINALLY going to deal with him as an adult which the little fuck should have been treated as all along! He now has to serve 2 months in an adult facility for violating his probation. Still not as much as time as he SHOULD be serving but it's something and it's in an adult jail too, so maybe he'll get a little adult "love and attention". AND IF he violates his probation again....when he gets out...next time he'll get 40 years! Justice STILL hasn't really been served but it's likely the only satisfaction we'll ever get. NOW....if this kid had been black....and poor....or even white and poor......not going there...but I think you know what I'm saying.
