Jackson sentence doesn't make justice

  • Article
text size: AAA

What a travesty! Poor Rod Blagojevich gets 15 years for lying and didn't steal a cent, and Jesse Jackson Jr. gets 2˝ years for stealing $750,000. Go figure. To top it off, Jackson says he'll "try" to make restitution. So he gets to keep $250,00 per year in jail plus free room and board. Is this justice? He and his wife are lawyers -- guess they don't teach right and wrong in law school.
