10. I don't think most of us see it as a defeat...

or that we're attacking the rule of law. I see it as an extreme frustration with sentencing guidelines that are not applied equitably. Most people in this country do not feel that the rule of law and the courts are equitable. There is a reason that our prisons are overflowing, mostly with minorities, especially African American men. There is a prison industrial system in our country which is growing by leaps and bounds, and some say we spend more taxpayer monies on prisons than on schools.

I've been around long enough to know that not all judges are stellar people who are committed to applying the law and sentencing equitably.
