Finally, after about 9 months the time had come: the court hearing!
For those who read that but don´t know what this is about: 9 months ago, on the 19.01.2011 my little siter (20 years) was killed in a car accident. She simply had been ran over. That dude who´s responsible for her death outran two cars and cut back into the line, while doing that he lost control of his vehicle. He crashed into a bunsh of parked cars and 3 pedestrians. My sister was one of these 3 persons and the only one who died.
I don´t want to go into detail what was said at the hearing, only the punishment. After 5 long pleadings the judge decided to confine him for one year and take away his drivers license for a year as well. From my point of view a way too mild punishment, considering what he has done, let alone thinking about the punishment in other cases. Such as copyright pirates, for something like that you can get up to 5 years. So tell me, where is there a relation???
Is a human life worth so less?
I find it ridiculous being confined for so long for such a "cheap" felony, but if you run someone over you the punishment is rather mild. Sure, copyright pirates need to be punished, they are criminals, but not in this measure. Or, if they really need to set the scale so high, they need to bring other crimes, such as killing someone, in relation to that and punish them even harder. In case of the copyright pirates it´s not a person who is directly affected but a company on a financial level - there I must say: HELLO?! Is that it? Is money so much more worth than a life?
Think about what you´re doing here! Is that "justice"?
I don´t think so, not at all!
We lost sight of the important things in life.
We´re only interested in money, money, money and the more money we have, the better we feel. It became quite rare for us to think of other people rater than thinking of ourselves. We became a race of pure egoists...
But the most important thing is life itself. It is precious and by far not sure. We shouldn´t put money at first place in our lives and find back to what connects us all: the life. It is time to finally start to think about one another and to appricate life as it is. And not only life. We became quite easy-going and take things for granted such as having food every day, even the food we want to have.
Wake up, folks!
And now - thank you for reading. Comments are really appricated
