Does the class warfare rhetoric ring hollow? I'd say so.


How does it feel being a good little slave?


Sorry but if you look at the rich and powerfull on other matters.

Look at hollywood stars who get caught on drug charges? They get a slap on the wrist, someone who is not rich and famous? Well theres a reason your prisons are full.


Also take this example: To big to jail after hit and run.

So dont tell me the rich dont get special treatment.

Or is have equal laws for all too commie?

Now! If you did'nt catch this other little nugget from a few weeks ago within 45 minutes of this scene, Alice Walton had her DWI expunged from Parker County just West of there.
Alice Walton killed a woman in Arkansas and had all charges dropped in the 90's.
Then she is arrested here on drunk driving and guess what??? Anyone? The State trooper was suspended and couldnt testify. That's right, the Walmart heiress has had the records EXPUNGED. That means since she's killed a woman and just got this dropped, nothing can be held against her during her next killing or DWI. IT never happened and would be a first time offense.
Not that she couldnt buy out of that one too.

That is the most moronic defense for this I've ever heard. Even if you believe the prospect of it not being his fault because he's used to not having consequences. How is not getting any real consequences supposed to teach him anything. Therapy is not a consequence that he's going to give 2 #s about. At most he'll find it an annoyance.

Give him jail time and let him get some rough treatment from people less well off then him in a prison or something, THAT'S a real consequence that REAL people in the REAL world that isn't bought for them have to go through when they do # like this. I'm of a mind with others in this thread. If I was family to those injured. That kid would need to watch his back.

Having heard about this and giving some thought to it the following can be stated:

This is a poster child for where the laws need to be reviewed. As the punishment does not fit the crime there will be those that state that this kid needed a break because of one thing or another, and thus needed a second chance. Yet here is where it would matter, as he killed 4 people with his vehicle, and paralyzed one person.

The laws need to be changed yes, however, something like this needs to be attacked on 2 fronts. The first is that the families of the victims need to bring individual law suits against the defense attorney, the judge, the kid and the kids’ family, and not settle out of court. Ask for a very large amount of money and refuse to be together in the lawsuit. The reason why you ask for it being in separate is that if they join together it becomes a class action lawsuit and ultimately they would get a lower amount that would not sting. And here is how it breaks down:

The Judge should be sued on the grounds of failing to uphold the law and apply it equally. You get people who have gone in front of the judge before and after for the exact same offense and claim judicial misconduct that their sentence was not equal to the kids.

The survivors go after the family to take away everything that they own, putting them in bankruptcy and to remove their wealth that allowed for them to raise such a callous and irresponsible person. You go after the child who is the main breaker of the law, thus making it hurt far worse than if he had gone to prison.

And while these lawsuits are going on, they have to get onto the books in voted into law that would in short make it where all who break the law are going to be treated equally under the eyes of the law, with a minimum jail time required, with no chance of this sort of sentence ever being passed again. And they need to approach it to the politicians that if this can happen because the person is wealthy, then it they have to do the same for every other drunk driver out there, or it would show that there is an inequality in the law. Politicians love this kind of stuff to get on the books, as they would hate to see an inequality in the law, and they would bite, able to use it against others, and those that do not, can be used against them in the next election. But it requires perseverance on the part of the families, and those who have been convicted for the exact same offence.

Why all the surprise? You are a Serf, they own you.


Im surprised that people are just rolling over and accepting this.

The USA get all rar rar about there ability to stand up to tyranny, yet all I see are a bunch of goverment fearing whimps to scared to do anything. Least the UK can hold a riot when it wants to.


I don't see how this would be deserving a riot. If this prick had killed my kid, I would put a bullet between his eyes, but then I'd be called a vigilante gun nut, so really we in the US are damned if we do and damned if we don't.


Only if they find the body. Otherwise he simply vanished. I don't condone vigilantism but if you were going to do it, do it to not get caught.

Given the life and death power judges have over people I would have no problem extending the death penalty to cover bribery and corruption as a judge.


Just prison in gennral population will do it. Wont be any exspensive appeals that way or a chance for some politican freind to pardon them


I have a big problem with this. If we as society say corruption as a judge deserves death, then give them death, don't back door it by saying they goto prison and we tell everyone they were a judge. Laws and the punishments for breaking them should be upfront so there's no room for subjective interpretation. That subjectivity is what gets you cases like this one where a kid can kill 4 people and get away with it.

Thats the thing I dont agree with the death penalty.


But if a person of power is corrupt they deserve to go to jail for life. If the prison population gives them a hard time? Well didums, should have though of that before you abused your position of trust.

As always, ATS reports news before the major news networks. I saw CNN report on it today. I feel this story was more shocking than a 1 minute sound bite and short clip of the spoiled brat. I thought CNN should have had prosecuting and defense attorneys commenting on this outrageous sentence. This was blatant injustice for the victims and their families! This kid should have been tried as an adult.

This judge should be held accountable for the lenient sentence he gave this kid for killing 4 people. Anyone else would have had the book thrown at them. If I were these family members, I would file a civil law suit and take this kids parents to the cleaners. I would also hire a good attorney and force a retrial, if there was any possibility in doing so.

He may have escaped the cell, but he can't escape what he's done. Did the parents think about that one? Doubt that. As a man who killed four people, drunk and behind the wheel and quote...


Other victims are severely injured; one has severe brain damage. Even after he killed and maimed those people, he was uncooperative and combative with the emergency services and walked away from the police saying "I'm outta here".


With that done and said, his life is over. Done. His parents put him in a rut. Who's going to hire him? And if so, when or if the business is handed to him, who's going to buy from someone like that?

People who care will spread awareness. Just 2 cents for those seeing injustice. Talk about some psychological bbq, that's hot.

You bourgeois super rich are like this; you know? In fact throughout history they have always been like this. They are so extremely disconnected form the rest of us that they really do live in a different world. They think and operate on a totally different level than the rest of us. They take selfishness and greed to such an extreme level that they lose their own humanity.

Therapy nor jail is not going to give this young man his lost humanity. I am of the opinion that only hard labor, and years of it at that, is the only cure for him. He must be put into a situation in which his very life depends on cooperating with other human beings for a very extended amount of time. It is very true that manual labor bonds humans together. You know, if you don`t work hard and cooperate with others you will not be able to get the basics needed to survive. That will give him his humanity I am sure of it.


You know, North Korea has tons of labor camps.

I suggest we find the little dirtball and give him a one way ticket to Kim Jong-Un Land!

Not much older than this kid, but I am appalled at this behaviour, and affluenza? Give me a break!

Pathetic Injustice !

From the comments It seems if a strong enough injustice takes place to them and is thrust upon them, it can drive people to murder.
Injustice causes powerful emotions, how many times even children say "that's not fair" and the adults reply is
"that's life, learn to deal with it".

But these are the type of emotions that inspired the French Revolution, the idea that all elites are scum and off with there heads.

About 5 years ago, I used to listen to Michael Savage's radio program as I drove home from work at night.
I don't really care for him because he's too bombastic and seemed to dislike anyone who disagreed with him.

Nevertheless, it was always interesting and I often found myself agreeing with some of his radical viewpoints. He discussed a case that was almost identical to this one. A mega-wealthy banker's son got off absolutely Scott Free from killing a couple people in a car crash. The kid was 18 years old. He was driving drunk in the morning! Savage ranted about how despicable it was, that this 'rich brat' got off with no jail time. He then said: "We have 3 types of government in America. Democracy for the rich, fascism for the middle class, and socialism for the poor."

From the perspective of a poor person who will likely never be above the bottom 1% income bracket it's more like:

Socialism for the rich (everyone else pays for their financial losses)
Fascism for the middle class (defer everything to the state)
Slavery for the poor (do I really need to explain this one?)

As we all know, money is power, and you need look no further than the OP for absolute proof. Seeing as his parents are so incredibly rich, then they are also incredibly powerful. I have no doubt that they greased all the right palms to make this happen.

I would love to see what new purchases the judge will be making in the near future.

He may have escaped the cell, but he can't escape what he's done.

You actually think this psychotic nutcase cares that he killed someone? People this selfish think that the world is better off without the "commoners" he killed. He most likely thinks it's their fault for getting in his way.


Who's going to hire him? And if so, when or if the business is handed to him, who's going to buy from someone like that?

You've GOT to be kidding! "Hire him"? "Buy from someone like that"? This kid was born to do one thing: party. That's all his life was, is, and will ever be. He has more money than all of us will see in our lifetimes. This manslaughter is a little speed bump in his life, the equivilent of you switching through the channels and not finding anything good to watch on TV.

So, Judge Dredd. Are you not aware that he's under 10 years probation? There's a strong chance he may see resentencing with his coarse behavior.

If you're concerned about wealthy sociopaths/psychopaths plowing the justice system, then after reading this, you'll become the bastion of justice, go out and do what needs to be done to make things right.

Has anyone seen checked to see what this kid is going to be doing at this "rehab"?


He has been staying at an exceptionally pleasant campus-style residential counseling center near Newport Beach, Calif. It specializes in chef-prepared meals, equine therapy, martial-arts training, yoga and nature hikes.

Um...what? Martial arts, yoga, nature hikes,.....and horseback riding.


It’s described as a “respectful recovery environment” where teenagers can get the “unconditional love they need to heal.”

According to Couch’s lawyers and, apparently, to the judge who sentenced him this week, the Keller teen needs healing because he is the tragic survivor of a bad upbringing.


More -

The website for the rehab center where the defense team wants Couch to be returned offers potential clients a reassuring message under a section headed “for teens.”

“Don’t be too intimidated by the idea of going to treatment,” the text reads. “We make it as interesting and engaging as it can be and we actually have fun, too.”

Where he's free of accountability and told it's not his fault, more likely. And in California too.. Oh man, he'll fit right in there.

This story makes me feel pretty sick. This lad got intoxicated, got in the car, mowed down a group of people, and is not going to actually feel the consequences of that act, because he has a heart armored by wads of money. This kid has never contributed to his country as far as we know, and he is getting off with less than a slap on the wrist.

Here in the UK, I had a doctor that used to treat me when I was a kid and got sick, or injured. He is one of the nicest dudes I have ever met, and I felt lucky to have been his patient, because some of our local general practitioners behaved as if they were more interested in serving the needs of pharmaceutical companies, and making their paperwork look good. However, my doctor tirelessly slogged away to ensure that his patients got the best possible results from treatment, and had the best possible improvement in their circumstances.

In short, the fellow was a prince. A year or so, he was driving his Porsche (yes, some dudes who have those are NOT total douches) at night, and hit an old lady who was crossing the street. The reason he hit her, is because he did not see her, as his eyesight was getting bad. The condition of his eyesight had declined so gradually, that he did not realise how bad it had become, and that lead to the collision with the eighty something year old, which was of course, fatal.

This prince of a guy, who was sober as a judge, and had contributed to the health and well being of tens of thousands of people over the course of the twenty five years I had known the fellow for, went to jail for two years. So this punk kid, who has contributed to bugger all, getting spared jail for the callous act of driving while intoxicated, is pretty disgusting to my mind.

I didn't realize they would jail someone if that person was not intoxicated. I figured that would then be considered an accident.
