These individuals have definately been treated unfairly by the judicial system, and thats where the problem is and thats where it needs to be fixed.

I just dont think that the government giving different amounts of protection to individuals based on sex, race, or sexual preference is the answer. Saying if your a person with these charactoristics we're going to prosecute you more or less severely than a person with these charactoristics.

Make it a crime for judicial bigotry or something, go after judges or prosecutors that lock up more black men than whites, more men then women, more women than men...whatever their bigotry happens to me .

But i think if we're all equal people then the law should treat us all equally and should protect us all equally.

Its definately one of those issues that really makes you think...
