I'm worried about the state of the United States. If the UN falls it'll be a matter of days before we have Oceania...

Not surprised at all considering that similar cases like this happen all the time.
This is a bit more explicit than usual though. Normally it can be written off as being able to afford better lawyers or something rather than the judge straight up giving lesser charges due to being rich.

What I find most disgusting about this is that the judge outright claimed the kid couldn't be held accountable because he's been sheltered and thus knows nothing about responsibility- so the appropriate response is to continue to teach him that he can do whatever he wants because his parents are wealthy?!

I'm betting right now that in a few years or even mere months, he'll do something similar, get arrested, and immediately use the judge's ruling to say he can't be found guilty. Hopefully if it ever gets to that point, the presiding judge will throw out his defense and go on a crusade to have that judge taken off the bench. :/ A judge that's stupid enough to think a kid who hasn't been taught responsibility shouldn't be held accountable for his actions shouldn't be a judge.

I also hope the families of the victims sue the kid, his family, and the judge. They all deserve it.

Any person who steals booze, drives drunk, and kills four people, regardless of age, in my opinion, result in a permanent removal of license, and four charges of motor vehicle homicide. If you keep a kid sheltered so that they don't know right from wrong, they are every bit a threat to society as maniacs who intentionally set out to kill are. The first thing any human being should be taught about real life (and 16 is not too young for this) is that you are entitled to nothing.

On Tuesday, juvenile court judge Jean Boyd later determined Couch would be better served by enrolling in a private $450,000-a year (£275,200) rehabilitation centre that his parents would pay for than to be sent into the Texas juvenile justice system.
Rich privelege is getting away with killing a bunch of people because you you can buy your way out of disciplinary action and feign a "psychological disorder" that doesn't exist. #Absolutely_disgusting

Also yes, the judge shouldn't be a judge if she makes such reckless decisions that endanger the public, as Nimono said.

Edit: I apparently gender-bended the judge. Not like she didn't have that one coming though. xP

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.
