Post on party parents: ‘Justice is unequal’
Today's Washington Post found that Charlottesville's 27-month sentence for a pair of parents stands out as a sore thumb of sorts among parents who host teen drinking parties. Even the mom of a boy killed after a parent-condoned party (no one was even injured in the Charlottesville case) was stunned by the sentence for the otherwise law-abiding George Robinson and Elisa Kelly. The bereaved Northern Virginia mom was quoted thusly on the Charlottesville sentence: "I'm speechless. I'm dumbfounded. It doesn't make any sense. Aren't we in the same state?"
