Effects of Income Inequality in the Legal System – The Conspicuous Case of Ethan Couch

Written by Fiverr member  http://fiverr.com/johns421unlv Edited by Jeremy Nickel The headline-churning case of the Texas judge who sided with defense attorneys for Ethan Couch, a wealthy teen who killed four people and critically injured two more in a horrific drunken driving crash, is generating some tough questions about how fair our legal system really is. How significant are socio-economic factors with regard to sentencing those who break the law? Couch had stolen beer from a local Wal-Mart and was plowing through a forty mile an hour zone going seventy in his dad’s F-350 when he ran into a disabled car on the shoulder, as well as the four people with the terrible misfortune of standing near it.  The wreck also threw two of his friends from the back of the pick-up truck, paralyzing one and severely injuring the other.  His lawyers argued that the teen had never really had limits or discipline from his parents, and therefore could not be held accountable. He simply didn’t understand the difference between right and wrong. A paid psychologist for the teen coined the term “affluenza” in  his testimony, explaining that Couch’s parents, who are millionaires thanks to a family metal works business, instilled a sense of privilege in their son that led him to believe there would be no real consequences for his actions. The judge agreed, opting to sentence him to ten years of probation and up to two years in a rehabilitation facility. While the families of the victims were understandably upset on a personal level, there are many who see the sentence as indicative of a much larger problem in...

Deconstructing Michigan’s Abortion Opt-Out Act

Written by Fiverr member http://fiverr.com/smartbiz38129 Edited by Jeremy Nickel Deconstructing Michigan’s Abortion Opt-Out Act In December 2013, supporters of the Abortion Opt-Out Act, derisively nicknamed the “rape insurance” initiative, won a sneaky victory as it was voted into law by the state of Michigan. This law bans insurance plans in the state from directly covering abortion. Women would have to purchase an abortion rider if they want to be covered. This means that in cases of rape and incest that result in pregnancy, women will need to have planned for these eventualities to be covered. Having an insurance rider sounds like a tidy solution, but the truth is insurance policies may not even include the rider in their policies. The reason? There is no market for it. How it Snuck into Law This law was brought to the legislature by a petition with 300,000 signatures. Michigan state law required the proponents of this bill, dubbed “the anti-choice community” needed close to 258,088 signatures in order to bring it before the legislature. This was a sneaky end-run that resulted in their victory. Because this is a citizen-initiated measure, it went straight to the GOP-controlled legislature the day before the end of the 2013 session and doesn’t need the Governor’s signature to get signed into law. Republican Governor Rick Snyder has already vetoed similar measures, so this was a definite coup for those trying to find legal ways to circumvent abortion law. Pushing for Votes Those who are for reproductive rights do have the opportunity to counter by circulating a petition that would force this law to a vote. Some of the legislators who voted for this law are from districts where...
