I posted in another thread that my record is not spotless, but it does not include bank robbery (the subject of this thread) or anything involving a firearm or fake I.D (not sure from who's ass u pulled that one, but I sure appreciate all of your research on Florida fake I.D laws).
It is stupid that my OPINION (and that is all it is) has rattled so many of you to the point of speculating about my own record (PM me and I will be more than happy to share with you the details of my speeding and underage drinking violation)
Hey I just go by what's in this thread. I am not coming down on whatever you did, just on this attitude like the man in the story should suffer forever. No matter where he works he will be getting the same taxes taken out of his cheques that pay my financial aid and yours...let's not force him to work shitty low paying jobs when he is obviously good at law.
I think you should see their point thought that your broken law is still a broken law. People who have served the punishment doled out by a judge should not be scarred for life. You shouldn't be constantly judged for something you already resolved how the judge recommended...and neither should he. You are breaking it down into tiers but look, that's why he got a harsher sentence than you. Now that he has served his time, that's just it. He has already paid for his crime. It's not up to us to try judge him again.
So let him start over. Just like you get to start over.
Even if he had shot and killed somebody, i would say the same thing. Cause he would have done his time for it. Even if you had killed somebody with your mistake, I would say the SAME thing. You deserve to start over after starting your sentence.
But I don't want you to feel bad or defensive about what happened in your past, cause you did your punishment for it already. So no stress okay?
