Ethan Couch killed four people, no jail because 'too rich to know right from wrong'. I will now dedicate my life to make his and that of the wretched judge Jean Boyd hell.
"A wealthy Texan teenager who mowed down and killed four pedestrians while driving drunk has been sentenced to 10 years’ probation at a private rehab centre, rather than 20 years in jail as prosecutors had demanded."
>>531093476 I support this. I'm kinda surprised the father and husband who lost his wife and daughter hasnt killed the fuck. Think about being in his shoes, some rich kid kills your entire family, the people you care most about- and he walks free, having to go to some posh rehab center. I'd set him on fire while he sleeps.
>being this retarded >thinking he has power, say or even knows on what /b/ wants >implying that if /b/ was a pirate ship we wouldn't all fedora neck beards with a sunken ship at the bottom of the sea because we're too heavy.
What the fuck happened to my /b/... five years ago if this little shit killed people, we'd be the first responders to fuck his life up. It's pretty common sense that Rich kid killing a handful of people and getting away with it was something we'd at least all be able to agree is something deserving justice.. Now you're all edgyfags. Looking at you: >>531094401 >>531094835 >>531095056 >>531095156
Er they didn't. Most of the richest families grew from being involved in slavery, exploitation of children, and various criminal activities. Once you have enough wealth, it's virtually impossible to lose it. Even the trading systems are completely rigged (look into how traders exchange information and can gain insurance on trades so that they can't actually ever lose their own money - although they can lose the public's money).
They used the "his parents taught him that wealth buys privilege" as a negative. So then do the exact opposite by having his parents spend $450k to send him to Country Club rehab in California.
And he was witnessed on surveillance video stealing beer from a store, driving with seven passengers in his father's Ford F-350, speeding (70mph in a 40mph), and had a blood alcohol content of .24%, three times the legal limit for an adult in Texas, when he was tested 3 hours after the accident. Traces of Valium were also in his system.
He killed four pedestrians and injured 11 others.
Perfect Example that wealth really does buys privilege.
Here is the truth of this situation. The guy is underage, and manslaughter is the highest charge he was facing. Had it been murder, he may have been charged as an adult, but since it was manslaughter, even if he were given a 20 year sentence, it would not have been as an adult and wouldn't stick. Thus at the age of 18 (2 years from now) the likelihood would be he is released because he would have been in treatment for those 2 years and there would be no reasonable expectation he was a danger to anyone else. Even juveniles convicted as juveniles for murder can only be held until they are 21. By giving him 10 years of probation, he will be under stringent control and the watchful eye of law enforcement for the duration. That means monthly drug testing and any little slip up will land him in jail for 10 years. Given the likelihood that he would be released at 18 without these restrictions if sentenced as a minor to 20 years and thus only serve 2 years at a country club facility his parents paid for, probation for 10 years that will not disappear as soon as he turns 18 is the bigger punishment in the long run. tl;dr- You're all faggots
This case wasn't based on wealth at all, you're all faggots, all minors who have been in similar situations have received the same consequence. This isn't a slap on the wrist at all, it's an attempt to better him. The problem isn't the system. The problem is all of you blood thirsty faggots.
it's simple.. the next faggot that want's to an hero.. we convince him to murder suicide judge. then the next an hero faggot.. murder suicide the father. and so on.. until the kid is last.. give him a few more years to fully contemplate that he's next.. that he's the ultimate goal.
>>531093476 >He said Couch got whatever he wanted. As an example, Miller said Couch's parents gave no punishment after police ticketed the then-15-year-old when he was found in a parked pickup with a passed out, undressed 14-year-old girl. He's a rapist too lel USA USA USA USA GOD BLESS AMERICA
You people seem to be under the misguided belief that me or someone else who do not agree with OPs moral position are doing so since they are under the age of 18. I am in fact 23 and do not give two fucks about some nobody's who aren't related to me in any way.
>possess a few images of CP for solely private use without supporting the industry or distributing the material
Twenty years in jail. Lifetime in sex offender register. Vigilantes try to burn your house down every few weeks (because they know where you live and that they can bully you with perfect impunity). Get beaten as a "pedophile" constantly because of stigma. Life ruined.
>>531097754 if you don't want whats best for society, or know what is right from wrong at 23, then your just a piece of shit annon..... maybe when you brain fully develops by 25 you will be more rational and logical... until then stay edgy
>>531098485 Honestly /b/ has always been this way, even in 2003. People always spoke of 'this is /b/ we don't have morals' or 'bring the old /b/' back. Dude this is a random board for people to talk about anything. Remember everyone is human, quit being such a edgy hipster.
>>531096950 But that's wrong you cunt. He's over 14 so the prosecution could have (and in most cases would have) moved to have him transfered to a criminal court, rather than a juvenile court. You sure as shit can be tried as an adult for manslaughter.
>>531096950 >10 years probation with wealth >any prison time what so ever
Are you fucking retarded or something? Which one would you choose you stupid fuck? It obvious and if you say prison, you are about as smart as a piece of dirt. Your whole post was shit, so please stop shit posting
This lil nigger needs to go to jail for 20 years. Sad corrupted courts
>>531097830 jail? Notice how he doesn't say the amount of time he spent. Let me guess faggot. >1 night in jail >bond out next morning >go to court get sentenced 1 year probation and community service Go an hero, you didn't get fucked.
>>531098710 If you were working you would know that 'rich' doesn't simply happen because you want it to. You also need complete lack of morals, sucking mountains of dick, and rich relatives.
Remember this in 5 years when you sustain your kids on food stamps and let your legs rotting off because you can't afford healthcare because your parents died before they could pay mortgage loans back and left you with nothing
>>531099164 This is true. There are different judges for juvenile and criminal courts. It is likely that this judge had no control over what happened case wise, but could only do what he might to make the situation better. The blame resides either on the prosecution for not requesting that he be tried as an adult, or the judge who denied the prosecution's request. I'm not sure which one though.
I'm sorry, what makes you think this little fuckup can actually refrain from doing something stupid for ten whole years? This kid will throw his get out jail for free card in the trash on a dare. Just wait like two years.
>>531099078 It was 20 days and the only thing I damaged was my car, they didn't even have proof that I was over the alcohol limit because they arrested me the next morning at my home. I got to jail for having an accident you fucking retard.
This is sad that /b/ has come to this....I'm only 19 myself however I discovered /b/ at the age of 12 and I knew the rules and I lurked for 5....count it 5 damn years in fear of posting something stupid and getting my IP tracked....what happened to those days? All the original old fags I looked up to are in /k/ or only come out once every blue moon. What happened to the cheese pizza post. The "If you don't remember this you're a newfag" post. All vanished. Now it's full of kids saying le, les, and all this bullshit....I missed /b/ for two fucking consecutive summers due to split op training. 11B Army fuck you all. Anyway I watched it as I missed shit and summer fags emerged and the true death of /b/ beginning of fall '11 at the rise of 9gag....sigh if any other people my age who were remember the old school creeps that only posted cp, gore, and other useful shit when other kids our age were to busy being kids while we stayed up late on /b/ on our PSP 2000 browsers, let's bring the old /b/ back to its original glory....and to any old fag who sees this....Please comeback. These damn 13-17 cancerous whores are like the Flood and we need you the Spartans to cleanse theses candyass fucks out. Remember '06
What the fuck happened to you /b/? What happened to the days of dick jerkery and fucking with people that deserved it? Now everyone just sits around yelling NYPA the minute someone says we should all do something together like fucking 14 year old Le edgy kids.
>>531093476 Alright I'm gonna say it. After all this years wave after wave of summerfags and and pure faggotry there is no more beef in /b/. Your honorable attempt to troll the shit out of this two people is very noble kind sir. I fear that this nice "raid" will be silenced with "not your personal army" and whatnot although it is absolutely legit. I myself will see how I may assist your noble cause by myself. I congratulate to your initiative and wish the cause the very best. May /b/ with you, kind sir.
Everyone's failing to grasp what the judge really did. If he was found guilty as a minor he would serve time til 18 and be out and it would be wiped from his record. By giving him probation for 10 years he now has one life. If he gets in any sort of criminal trouble his probation will be revoked and charges reinstated. This fucker is almost guaranteed to fuck up.
lel @ all the sad moralizing faggots acting like scientologists and harassing his fathers decent, honest, sheet metal company. Bless you little dears for thinking fake reviews will balance the scales of justice. Hope it deals with that reticent fear that when it happens to you one day, no one will give a fuck. "I know" you say to yerselves, "if I give a fuck, that'll abate my anxiety about no one giving a shit about me when I die."
>>531100427 You are spouting off some sense, bro. This shitsmear WILL fuck up EVENTUALLY when his Dads money won't be able to get him out of trouble...
However... I think the massively ironic and overlooked issue is the principle of the 'slap on the wrist' sort of punishment he got. Rich, dumb white kid makes a huge rich, dumb white kid mistake and ruins the lives of 4 families. He is 'diagnosed' with Affluenza being a seemingly made-up condition insinuating 'he has no morals and has to suffer no repercussions for his actions cuz money'... So, to correct this problem, the Judge dolls out a sentence that further enables this 'condition' by giving only probation. It's very ironic, and rage-inducing to a degree. I am not a moralfag, but I do have some morals and I, personally, would like to see this kid get boxfloods and dragon dildos until we read about him becoming an-hero. He really does deserve it, and I really think this is a great opportunity for /b/ to step up to the plate all heroic and shit to teach an immense faggot a lesson.
I hope you faggots don't do anything against this kid. you fucking DESERVE to be mowed down by rich folks.
you ignorant americunts just took it from wall street when they robbed you and got away with it, when they gave themselves bonuses as well... not they start killing you and getting away with it and you do nothing fucking sheeple
One of the few intelligent posts in this thread. The rest is new kids trying to act like how they THINK the 'old' /b/ was. He's right, a while back the consensus would have been to fuck up the lives of him and his parents, because they deserve it.
>>531106549 Struggling with it at the moment. I'm using my neckbeard troll account, so I dunno how I should go about this to make it believable... I doubt the public would believe that 'Russell James' got raped on a couch by a kid half his age. Hahaha.
>>531108092 1. He lives in North Texas - so your profile has to be something related to that 2. his parents are divorced - so it can be plausible that he was alone while his dad / mom was out 3. his parents both have previous run-ins with the law 4. One psychologist who disagreed with Couch's sentence—Dr. Suniya S. Luthar, who specializes in "the costs of affluence in suburban communities"—maintains that research shows feelings of entitlement among affluent youth is a social problem, and that "we are setting a double standard for the rich and poor." Luthar asked
"What is the likelihood if this was an African-American, inner-city kid that grew up in a violent neighborhood to a single mother who is addicted to crack and he was caught two or three times ... what is the likelihood that the judge would excuse his behavior and let him off because of how he was raised?" 5. Critics have also complained that the presiding judge -- state District Judge Jean Boyd -- gave a much harsher sentence to another 16-year-old intoxicated driver 10 years earlier. In February 2004 Boyd sentenced Eric Bradlee Miller to 20 years, telling him, “the court is aware you had a sad childhood … I hope you will take advantage of the services [offered by the Texas Youth Commission] and turn your life around.” Miller had killed one victim not four, and had a much lower blood alcohol level (0.11 compared to Couch's 0.24) but was from a much poorer family. 6. Texan republican and democrats already commented oon this saying its a disgrace. so there is political interest.
I'm all for people being rich and shit, but WTF is this shit? Just because the kid has money he gets a get out of jail free card? No. Justice is supposed to be blind. It don't matter how much money you have. You break the law, you break the law. You kill people while breaking the law, you get an additional sentence tacked on. Period. AND THE SAME GOES FOR POLITICIANS AND CELEBRITIES! START HOLDING THESE FUCKS RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR SHIT! 1%er, 3%er, 56%er, or 99%er. We all live under the same laws, therefore the punishments on conviction should be the same for all of us. I am sick of our biased and broken court system...
My god, what a fuck cancer. /b/ officially can no longer have any more influence in the real world because even the suggestion of doing so immediately triggers the whatever it is that does in a bunch of losers finding even that, outside their comfort zone.
Look, at this. Fucking full of people thinking that if they kiss ass, on the "rich", they will somehow become so themselves. Or thinking that they will receive a present in the end, for having defended them valiantly on the internets.
Where's the ubiquitous anon in these threads that just showed up with a treasure trove of personal information on this guy that the hive of /b/ could put to use? There was always that guy in the old threads, and now when even worse injustices are brought to light like this and the cops murdering the homeless guy all /b/ has done is be edgy or complain.
>Miller said Couch's parents gave him "freedoms no young person should have." He called Couch a product of "affluenza," where his family felt that wealth bought privilege and there was no rational link between behavior and consequences.
If this is true why aren't the parents being prosecuted
You think that kid isn't suffering? He killed four people. He isn't a psychopath he just fucked up once and now he has to live the rest of his life knowing that he killed innocent people. I agree that he should have gone to jail, but i don't think there needs to be any more action taken against him after the fact.
listen guys this isn't about him being rich, the verdict doesn't make any damn sense. How many people should get off with lighter sentences because they're too poor to know right from wrong? Kids raised on the streets? What's the difference? Almost every hood in the lockup right now would fit that description, jesus christ
that boy isnt goin to no rehab shit its just to calm people down and think he is being punished its what they tell the public, and why would a judge take a bribe dosent he/she make decent money? apperantly you cant make enough money in america god bless greed
>>531112335 Our justice system is terrible flawed, filled with double standard and situation-changing sentences out the ass. Something needs to change so that rich pricks don't get off with "a slap on the wrist." I mean, even if 10 years probation is from that, people see it as such when compared to the poor/middle-class/anything thats not rich/majority population alternative.
>>531112661 >other anon clearly stated that he only had pictures of cp and did not make it or distribute it >thinking said anon is hurting children by masturbating to pictures in his home >being this retarded
its essentially the same argument as many insanity defenses. Because of a mental defect or sickness of the mind, the person essentially does not know right from wrong or does not understand what the societal norm is
It shouldn't have worked here, but it did and its not as absurd legally as it seems to a layperson
>>531114071 I wouldn't even bother responding to these faggots anon they're barely able to unstick their own heads from their arses let alone read a post about cp or loli without spewing their shitty opinions everywhere
