Seven years probation

That former right-wing radio talk show host whose name I will not mention has been sentenced to seven years' probation for exposing himself to an eleven-year-old neighbor girl. I'm not all that interested in the details, but I gagged when I read his public statement.

"Those of you who have listened to my radio show and read my newspaper columns over the years know how strong a supporter I was of our criminal justice system. I can only say how misguided I was. Our criminal justice system is not based on justice; it is a quota system where conviction is the only scorecard," he said.

What an utter, flaming hypocrite he is. How totally self-absorbed and self-serving he is to harbor any suspicions about the criminal justice system after all these years, when it's his own ass on the line. If it were in my power to do so, I'd force him to listen to his own broadcasts about crime and criminals for the entire time he's on probation. He has richly earned all the scorn and contempt that will be heaped on him for the rest of his life as a result of his wrongdoing. For shame.

On a side note, if he feels the need to commiserate with someone over their shared fascination with the underaged, here's someone to whom he could reach out. Via Alan.

I, sadly, agree.

Hello, my name is Marcey. I was going out with a guy that was on probation and I wanted to understand more about how it feels to the person on it because they feel shaped and what else? Because he said htat I dont understand and he needs space.
