That still perfectly encapsulates who so many of us are mad about this. Petit larceny is shoplifting a candy bar from the convenience store. A $100,000 credit card scam is a major felony. If she wasn't Joe Biden's niece, she wouldn't have gotten such a sweetheart deal.

Yes, some are more equal than others... big sigh.

The thing about this for me at least is that I firmly believe that we should be using more non-incarceration penalties for non-violent crimes. House arrest, parole/probation, community service, restitution... So it doesn't bother me so much that she wasn't imprisoned, but that so many others are!!!

Although I do believe she should have received a harsher penalty... at least house arrest and far more community service.

Not necessarily. I do not feel we the public have enough details being put forth to make that determination.

If i steal your card and run up 100g debt and never having met you then that is super serious. Now if i know you and you allow me to spend 100g a month and suddenly one month i spend 200g without asking then that is much different case.

Political privilege my butt, My mother's, eh, "model citizen" late ex-boyfriend had $100k in CC fraud (and another $100k in personal CC debt) His lawyer got him probation, the deal was a month of financial & behavioral counseling. A month total.

I don't know how TF he swung that, but he did it. Must have been one of the few lawyers out there worth their salt.

What's petty about $100,000 dollars?


You give no amount of perspective to the story as a whole.

You seem to often make that mistake.

To me 100g is not petty.

To trump 100g is petty.

That is perspective. Try it some time.

She probably has the PTSD, poor girl.

10 days community service.

*weeps quietly*


When they make the movie (and I know they will) I think Michelle Wolf or Elizabeth Warren should play the lead role.


Literally like a prison in Singapore!

Literally!

It looks like whoever is matching these energies are not up to par maybe. Seems to be corrupting much?

You want PERSPECTIVE.

Read ATF FORM 4473 11b.

Yes i want perspective in relation to the op.

What on earth does the atf form have to do with the op?

I am thinking you are not grasping the totality of my post nor the meaning of perspective.

So you have issues with district attorneys, finally?

I can remember some threads where you are taking up for the plea process when it comes to others being forced to plea instead of having there day in court due to counsel.

All we know on this end in this case is there was a credit card involved and 100g and a plea.

About the same as whether or not the President thinks $100k is petty, I expect.

$100K only allows her to run a local campaign. She's gotta be a thief in the millions to even consider state or federal office.
