BEFORE my run-ins with the police (see below), THIS is what I was going to originally blog about:
Wrist Slap for Rapist
A Vermont man convicted on multiple rape counts against a young child was given just 60 days in jail by a judge who says he no longer believes in punishment. Prosecutors had asked for at least eight years behind bars for Mark Hulett, who confessed to raping his victim repeatedly for four years, starting when she was seven.
But in handing down his sentence, Judge Edward Cashman said harsh punishment, "accomplishes nothing of value," adding, "anger doesn't solve anything. It just corrodes your soul." The victim's mother tearfully disagreed, telling reporters that the rapist "should pay for what he did."

Thoughts??? Anyone want to explain to me WTF is going on here?
Judge Cashman also said he didn't "believe in punishment" . . . as was said by many last night, what DOES he believe in? Santa Claus? The Easter Bunny??
