EtcetEraThread Botham Jean's brother embraces Amber Guyger after she was sentenced 10 years for the murder of his brother
Reason User Banned (1 month): Antagonizing and misrepresenting other users over multiple posts in this thread; inflammatory false equivalence surrounding disproportionate sentencings for minorities
1...2...or 50, it doesn't matter. One group commoditizing a horrible situation doesn't make yours or anyone else's attempt to commoditize a family's grief right.Clearly, you don't even understand what forgiveness means, so I can see why you would feel that way.Absolutely.If people continue treating this as some outlier and focus on this particular case without considering what it really is they should be asking for? Absolutely. Pushing for harsher sentencing is how we go to the bullshit mandatory minimums for things like marijuana possession in the first instance. If you know institutionalized racism exists (and it very clearly does), do you really want an excessively harsh sentence here? What does that mean for the next person of color when subjected to sentencing? What do we accomplish warehousing ANYONE??? Literally ANYONE??? Do you really want this to be all about punishment? Do you really feel as though no one can be rehabilitated? Those are the bigger, broader questions here with exponentially more impact on genuine change. It ain't finger wagging. It's just common sense.
