Why are we holding high profile trials, with guilty jury convictions, and then have these political crooks end up doing their "hard time" in the comfort of their own home.
It happened again on Friday when convicted FELON/Ex-Los Angeles City Councilman Richard Alarcon was allowed to skip out of a 120-day jail sentence (Perjury and Voter Fraud) and into a custom fit ankle bracelet and into house arrest for the next 51 days.
Hard time my rear?
Shame on the legal system for allowing this to take place today.
I have reported on political corruption for years.
We have all learned firsthand about the seedy dark side of how our "public servants" break laws, how they stuff millions of dollars into their pockets and go on to live lavish lives...out of the glare.
Enough of the "slap on the wrist" mentality that is now the "new normal" after elected lawmakers are found guilty of felony crimes.
Come on Sheriff Jim McDonnell.
Show us what you are made of. The people elected you to stop corrupt lawmakers from destroying the system. Come of Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey.
Let's stop allowing convicted elected officials to sneak out of jail....without fanfare...and stop playing the "jail over crowding" card as your excuse.
We all need to be alarmed about with took place today with new Felon Richard Alarcon...each and everyone of us.
Don't be fooled people. Hey, I wonder where Alarcon is going to be doing his "house arrest?" The political circus is BACK in TOWN!
