I watched "Snitch" tonight with the Rock AKA Dwayne Johnson. It was very good movie and it is based on true events. At the end of the movie it states that people who are first time non-violent drug offenders receive a longer prison sentence then a rapist, a child molester or a person who has committed manslaughter. I find this to be so unbelievable that a person who for the first time is found to have a large quantity of drugs on him can be sentenced to more time than a person who kills someone, rapes someone or molest a child. I seriously think there is something wrong with the system. What are your thoughts if any on this?

Looks like this is an interesting movie. I might download it if I find one. At first, I thought you were referring to the movie about a clown who is getting his revenge over some kids who killed him accidentally. I just realized, that movie is Stitched and not Snitch. I like the Rock more when he do movies less than when he wrestle.

I know it happens and its not right. Several years ago I received a ticket and went to court watching 5 young people all get a light verdict because they were teenagers and each received no fines just community service and very little. I was mad watching because their sentences was so little that they were likely to just do it again. When it was my turn the police man wasn't in the court, so I was let go, but really wanted my day in court, as I wasn't speeding and didn't go through a red light. I had witnesses with me and one even took time off from work. I didn't feel any justice that day.
