Different Justice Systems For Different People


April 16, 2015 by Chris Kite

I just read the news about 9 of the 10 people responsible for cheating on standardized testing in Atlanta public schools being sentenced to jail. It isn’t that I disagree with the sentence. I think what they did is not just a little case of cheating, but it sent the wrong message to many school children that were quite impressionable, I’m sure. These teachers need to be role models in the classroom and instead they were teaching children that it is okay to cheat.

But I struggle with the fact that only one person that “cheated” and created the financial crisis of 2008 was imprisoned or even tried! Only one. Surely cheating investors, home owners, and fellow employees and ruining peoples lives, while also destroying the nation’s economy and costing taxpayers millions of dollars is a worse offense than cheating on standardized testing.

It is shameful that more people were not brought up on charges for the 2008 financial crisis.

    I agree, that is a tough one, altho I wonder how many kids are paying attention. Either way, our justice system definitely likes the wealthy and the white. Surprise, surprise!
