Also yes, the judge shouldn't be a judge if he makes such reckless decisions that endanger the public, as Nimono said.
The judge is female, for the record.
Honestly, the most disgusting thing about this to me is that the judge ACTUALLY BOUGHT that defense. Seriously, how is it right to allow a kid to claim rich privelege made him unable to see right from wrong, agree with it, then LET HIM GET OFF DUE TO RICH PRIVELEGE?
If you agree it's a problem, DON'T FURTHER IT!
The one bright side to this is that the lawyer actually hurt the kid instead of helping them. Sure, the kid got off...but the lawyer also outright said the parents are at fault. Since the judge bought the defense, and the kid got off because of it, this means what the lawyer said is true.
Which means the parents now have evidence to sue the parents for all they're worth. I do hope they're able to take every last bit of cash the kid's parents have. Somehow, I feel that's unlikely, but...it'd be a great way to teach that family a lesson. Good luck using that rich privelege when you have no money at all! And you KNOW the families of the victims are gonna sue.
