@tiaxanderson Yes, its absolutely rigged! The "justice" system in the U.S. is a joke.

I can go ALL DAY about why its a joke! But in a nutshell, the system is what it is, because the morally smug "This is a Christian Nation!" politicians who call the shots think that charity and forgiveness are "communist" and "satanic"; that too many people still believe more in "keep them off the streets and were they belong" then "we need to find ways to get them to become better people" (and even still, our warped materialistic thinking twists that too "we need to find ways to MAKE them productive people"); and most of all, the U.S. never really ended slavery -- we just repackaged it into a from of "rehabilitation" and just ignore that its doing way more harm to society than good.
