Default Teenage Boys gets away with Murder

A teenage boy named Ethan Couch of the age 16 was drunk driving and killed 4 people and severely injured another. A judge sentenced him to 10 years of probation and a year of in-patient treatment at a California rehab center that costs $450,000 per year to be paid by his parents. They later stated that he has "affluenza". But it is not a mental illness. Many say that he got away with murder because he is rich.

I agree that he got away with murder and that the judge who sentenced him should be fired. I think its an outrage that your money can get a jail free card.

Here's more about it

Here's a petition to get the judge fired

What do you guys with of all of this?

Frankly I don't see why people are so surprised.
Money talks in this country and the fact that the boy is white doesn't hurt his case.

They said this same judge a year prior to this had locked up another boy for 10 years I believe for killing just one. It's sad, but the courts always been like this.

Frankly I would rather see treatment as a court consequence for all drug and alcohol related crimes over jail time.

And yet a woman who mercy kills her son who suffered from severe brain damage gets a murder sentence and no leniency. Wow. Just wow.

Honestly, not every unfair case has to be related to Zimmerman
I'm tired of people using that it's just really annoying.

Even though I agree with your statement to a certain extent, if every crime commited by someone who was under the influence of drugs or alcohol would always only receive treatment, then you'd have people who would purposely consume these chemically concocted substances prior to comitting a crime so they wouldn't get any jail time.
