Part 5:

When I read this report I was surprised by the fact that a homeless and hungry man who confessed of being guilty of robbing \$100 from a bank was sent to jail for 15 years. While a man who was involved in one of the biggest corprate frauds which in total was \$3 billion stolen, was sent to jail for ONLY 3 YEARS. First I am outraged by the fact that a homeless man who stole \$100 and gave it back feeling guilt and confessing his wrong doing got 15 years in prison for being honest and truthful while a sick corprate criminal would get 3 years after stealing \$3 billion. When i thought of justice, I thought that if you are guilty and ADMIT your wrong doing your sentence in jail will be lessened. But in this case the judge didnt look at the mans good heart for the judge just looked at the wrong doing he has done and since he thought he was homeless he would think that it wouldnt be important. Just simple compare the stats, \$100: \$3 billion and with that goes a 15 year sentence:3 year sentence. Also look at the age 55:54 add then 3 to the 55 and 15 to the 54 then the age when they get out of jail is 58:69. 3 years in jail for robbing \$3 billion and 15 years for just robbing \$100? I just doesnt seem right. I made this desicion because even thought both have down wrong things in life the one that confesses his guilt should be rewarded but yet must still face his penalty but for the one that is guilty but does not confess and try to get out of it must face the major consequence. But the fact of 15 year for \$100 and 3-4 years for \$3 billion is just not right in this world. If I were the judge i would have given the man 1 year just for his confession of his wrong doing of stealing \$100 and give the other man 15-20 years for his act of fraud of many americans which totaled a \$3billion fraud.
