SCOTT WEILAND SERVES 13 MINUTE JAIL SENTENCE FOR DUI
TMZ is reporting that STP-frontman Scott Weiland served a whopping 13 minutes of an 8-day sentence resulting from a drunk driving arrest this past fall.
Is there no fucking justice in the world?? Forget whatever pre-conceptions you may have about Weiland, his bands, or his struggles with drug addiction (I happen to be a Weiland sympathizer). But for anyone to serve 13 minutes of an 8-day sentence is fucked. For anyone to receive an 8-day sentence for something people usually get a full year for is fucked. For a man convicted of a second DUI to get off scot-free with a $2,000 fine and some alcohol counseling is severely fucked. That people arrested for possessing a small amount of harmless pot get it way worse than someone who was actively endangering the lives of others is fucked beyond all recognition.
This just proves that rich run this country, make all the rules, and can get away with anything they want. Rich peoples’ rules, people, rich peoples’ rules. Our legal system is fucked beyond belief and completely at the whim of dollar signs.
