    Harsh? Exactly how many times should you be allowed to violate parole before you go to prison?

    parole = State Time

    probation= County Time

    big difference ...

    No, parole is getting off after serving some of your sentence and the parole board thinks you're no longer a threat.

    Probation is a sentence given by a judge that is much lighter than the normal sentence for the crime, with the stipulation if you get in trouble you get resentenced (and usually the max allowed)

    "Last year, the Los Angeles Times reported Baca put one of his closest friends on the payroll as a $105,000-a-year adviser."

    my god if an advisor to the sheriff earns 105 grand how much does the sheriff earn ?

    ya my bad, on saying parole instead of probation, but the point stands. She wasn't sentenced to jail until she violated the terms of her probation twice.

    People are so easily distracted by unimportant shit like this. What a waste of time.

    Yes. It is sad that the average American is below average. I think the film Idiocracy paints an accurate picture.

    Apparently not such that you could resist the urge to read and comment.

    I'm sorry, but isn't it better NOT to be aware of the harshness of this world and be cocooned in a dreamworld? You employ some very questionable logic my friend.

    Errrm. No.

    What a strange thing to say. It's better to be "cocooned in a dreamworld" than have some kind of semblance of what the world is really like?

    Well, it may be that we have a semantic misunderstanding here.
    Try to look deeper into what I said without all the usual cliches associated with it.

    To be honest, I'd respond, but I haven't the foggiest what you're banging on about. Sorry.

    No becouse a dreamworld is just a dreamworld. Reality is out there and to be able to resist the harshness one has to be exposed to it otherwise one day it will come as a shock becouse dreamworlds dont last forever. Really a dreamworld is a bubble that can burst so easily...pop! :wink:

    She knew about the laws and must have been aware that she broke it since she done it before to (drive drunk). Really it's her own fault and I think she deserves what she got. IF anything I would care far more about the future to be killed/handicapped/traumatised person due to him/she being run over by a drunk.

    No excuse exists.

    No question about that. I was merely pointing out that if one can be spared actually entering this real world and could remain in their dreamworld, cocooned by his/her rich parents, then that is what he/she should do. No Buddhas here, sorry :)
