The use of fines as punishment for crimes has long been a way to only punish the lower classes. A monetary fine may hurt the poor or working class if they have to give up comforts or necessities to pay the fine. It doesn’t hurt the rich outside of embarrassment for being caught. In this case, the fine really is a punishment; it must have come as quite a shock.
On the other paw, since we really do have a tiered system of justice in this country, it will probably be overturned or reduced. Punishments that effect the rich are not a trait of our right wing Supreme Kangaroos.
Where is someone with his reputation for not paying bills going to find a bondsman to front his bonds?
I can’t very well “like” your post, but it was very well done. Thank you.
In a language where a street is female (la calle), I don’t take anything as obvious. Male/female nouns have been around in languages since they were codified, so I just go with the flow :)
In Spanish, that’s “hand to hand”.
That is a very dangerous attitude you have toward the Republicans. You are underestimating them in a big way. They are disciplined enough to play the long game very successfully. Starting with the Southern Strategy, they have successfully gerrymandered a significant number of minorities into safe Red districts. They have packed the courts with partisan hacks who will march in lockstep with them. They are very good at gaslighting their followers to rally against manufactured threats.
If they can get you to write them off as a bunch of lightweight ineffectual twits, it is likely they will win. We need to fight them as a credible dangerous opposition if we are going to win.
99% of lawyers give the rest of them a bad name…
Pizza rats are protected by the Creator! (the one that indisputably exists in this context)
Whimsy is never out of style! My comment was intended to be an addition to your comment. I apologize if I came across as critical. It was not the intent :)
Yeah, gum marks on the supreme kangaroos, who can be bought and paid for, in public, by the ultra-rich, IS a real pain.
