I wonder if "afluenza" would also apply to those who live at the lowest economic scale?
It can be said that they grew up in an environment where the law does not apply to them as well.
You mean you haven't seen it yet?
There was a case in our city where two poor youths ordered some Chinese takeout. When the delivery driver came with their food, they murdered him
brutally ... just 'cause. Oh, and then they ate their takeout.
Our paper ran the story front page accompanied by a front page editorial explaining how they weren't really at fault because they were simply
products of their environment. In essence, it was society's fault that they murdered him.
Now, unlike this kid, they didn't get off, but someone did attempt to make the affluenza argument for them, and they aren't the only ones we see it
get made for. They just get public defenders instead of the slick, high-profile trial lawyers this kid got.
No, affluenza exists for everyone except the middle class suckers. We're the only ones who actually are dumb enough to take responsibility for
