It is a sad state of affairs when one's friends suggest that one pleads
guilty to a crime that the accused person may not have committed because
instead of getting 40 years in jail if found guilty, if they enter a
guilty plea and plea bargain they will "get off" hopefully with a small
fine and perhaps a short term of imprisonment, and can return to a
"normal" life. Is this really what US justice is about? No wonder
there are so many people in jail and with criminal records...one of the
worst countries in the world for prison populations. And it is called a
democracy and people are protected by a written US constitution?
Something wrong somewhere, rose coloured spectacles perhaps, belief
in their own propaganda...citizens brainwashed by their own government,
perhaps; and this is what the US wants to give to the rest of the
world...in the name of democracy and human rights. It's a tough ole
world right enough...
Just a thought,
