Ethan Couch

Affluenza: Rich Kids Suffer, Kill People & Don’t Get Punished

I don’t know how to do this justice. Please watch this brief report from CNN where Ethan Couch successfully is defended from 4 counts of vehicular manslaughter by explaining to a judge that he’s a poor little rich kid with bad parents.

Included in the Ethan Couch’s defense is what can only be described as evidence of sexual assault. His parents caught him in the pickup truck at 15 with a naked and passed out 14 year old girl. The defense uses this as an example of permissive parenting. Where was the prosecution? Why are we busy trying to further coddle this teen?

Four dead people including one man’s wife and daughter. It’s not enough to kill one member of his immediate family Ethan Couch had to take two?

Worth noting: Juvenile and adult prisons are full with poor kids whose parents never guided them. Which disease shall we invent for them? Who is the judge and how does he know Ethan’s parents? That’s what I want to know.
