I’m kind of ticked.
"There’s no end to the Internet outrage after a Texas teen who killed four people appears to have gotten a lenient sentence precisely because he’s from a wealthy, privileged family.
Sixteen-year-old Ethan Couch, who was driving three times over the legal limit for an adult when he killed four strangers, found out that he will likely receive treatment at a high-end rehab facility in California.”(x)
They said he cannot be punished because he has “affluenza,” or an inability to make good decisions thanks to a lifetime of being coddled.
SERIOUSLY. HOW IS THIS EVEN ALLOWED TO BE A THING. HE KILLED 4 PEOPLE. HOW IS HE NOT SPENDING THE REST OF HIS LIFE IN A JAIL CELL.
He’s not learning a lesson- his lifetime of getting off easy is still getting off easy!
