Our legal system.... sucks. Ellie. 34 kids; Arizona 25371 posts

So.... some guy on a plane can call a BABY a n****r and slap the child hard enough to cause a cut on his face.... and gets charged with simple assault.

Yet some lady at a school gets on stage and takes her top off at an assembly and gets charged with 7 different things, including endangering the welfare of a child...

Where is the fairness in this??? Why can two people also do the same crime, but be charged with different things in different places? Just seems so.... flawed.

It is flawed beyond belief.



I think most of the unfairness in the two cases you mentioned stems from our country's hang ups over sexuality.

I agree. Our country is a lot more lax than others in our views on sex and sexuality, but I'd rather my kid see a pair of b**bs than be slapped by a stranger and called a horrible name. jesus.

It's a very flawed system. I know woman who ran over her god daughter, killed the girl and is only serving two years and has been eligible for f**king shock probation for 3 months (she's been incarcerated for only 6.) Back home in Florida she'd be serving 5-10 at least. It never ceases to amaze me how much a sentence can vary from state tp state for the exact same offense.

Ones a sex crime.



One is morally more ridiculous but little damage was done to the victim.



Also assume that the news did a horrendous job reporting what REALLY happened.

just like molesters and whatnot can get out of jail early due to good behavior which makes absolutly no sense

It's bullshit
You can hit a child and et off with almost nothing but if you piss in public you're a registered sex offender



Where's the logic?

I dont know which is more damaging honestly. IMO, having a child slapped on a plane and called a horrible name would stick with me a lot longer than knowing my child saw b**bs, which can be pretty much anywhere. TV, public, etc.

You're right about the news though. They do have passengers backing up the story, but the news always has a way of twisting things or leaving out important details.

If a man had flashed his p***s on stage, everyone would be up in arms though. b**bs shouldn't be treated differently.

That's where the whole breastfeeding thing comes into play though. I think they SHOULD be treated differently. But that's just my opinion. But you're right.... as it stands, it would be a double standard.

Although.... this is just one comparison, and evidently a bad one. I should have included another story similar to the airplane one. I just couldnt believe that slapping a child "wouldn't" be endangering the welfare of a child, ya know?

She didn't show her b**bs to breast feed. So breast feeding shouldn't have anything to do with it.
