What happens when you’re a corrupt cop found guilty of reselling drugs you stole from crime scenes in addition to violently striking an attempted suicide victim on a hospital gurney? Well, you get a paltry 5 years in prison!
Yep, only 5 years! While there are thousands of offenders in the American prison system currently serving decades-long sentences for simply possessing small amounts of marijuana for personal use (let alone sentences for other other harmless narcotics), a filthy, scum-bag cop who not only possesses drugs but steals drugs from others and resells them for personal benefit gets a short sentence. I’ve heard of receiving a longer sentence for stealing quarters from washing machines.
I have said it once, I have said it twice, and I will say it again: the justice system in the United States is fucked.
