Leniency for a Drug-Dealing Judge

by Will Grigg

Utah resident Virginia Ward cried as she was sentenced to 90 days in jail – and three years of probation -- for drug trafficking. It could have gone much worse for her. Ward, who had become addicted to the potent prescription painkiller Oxycodone, had originally faced two 15-year prison sentences for her role in a multistate smuggling operation.

It wasn’t until Ward’s sentencing hearing that she learned that the prosecution had reduced its sentencing recommendation to six months. The judge cut that already lenient sentence in half. The department of probation and parole had recommended against jail time.

When Ward reports to jail today, she will serve her term outside of Salt Lake County, in order to avoid other inmates she had imprisoned. Until earlier this year, Ward was a sitting judge, in which role she sentenced lesser offenders to longer terms than the one she will serve.

Meanwhile, a fellow Utah resident named Weldon Angelos is serving 55 years – in principle, a life sentence – for selling about 24 ounces of marijuana to a police informant. Federal prosecutors piled on the charges to punish Angelos for refusing a plea bargain that would have imposed a 16-year prison sentence.

In our system, leniency is reserved for the powerful and corrupt.

98198 This entire society is sick, diseased and beyond redemption. By enabling and allowing the parasite class to prey upon the citizenry, America has earned everything bad happening to it. And the worse is yet to come.

184167 Privilege is based in people's ability to influence others. In the old west, which was as close to anarchy as we've ever seen, the affluent, large families, and outlaws had carte blanche to do whatever they wanted: In the absence of organized government, they WERE the defacto government. Those with less power were subjugated, killed or driven out.

"Well, that's the nice thing about complete freedom," you might say, "You can always leave." I say, "No, complete freedom means I go where I want, take a home where there is free land and don't have to leave because of someone else's privileged influence; because someone else has a lot hirelings or friends and wants my land." If their privileged influence would stop at the edge of my land, fine...but it doesn't. I have to leave MY land because of the other guy's influence and privilege.

Consider that town in South Dakota where the guy was going to control the whole thing so he could keep out blacks and other "undesirables". By his very actions, he would establish HIS position of privilege and authority; and trust me, everyone else will be subjugated. It's not just a matter of the blacks and undesirables, and I can pretty much guarantee his desire to oppress won't be limited to his city limits

Special privilege is undesirable wherever it is found (yes the events of the article suck) but it is not a creation of "this system". To damn the system with it demonstrates a disingenuous disregard of human nature and desire for power.

6415 @ Nickel's 2 Bits: Do you not see the inherent contradiction in your statements? You speak of the "old west," glorifying your cowboys, who rode into the hinterlands to "take a home where there is 'free' land and don't have to leave because of someone else's privilege." Well, as soon as you've done that, it's no longer "free land," is it? That is certainly what your cowboys did to the First Peoples. They brought their notions of private property rights and their gridlines, and they decimated the Peoples.

Yes, it certainly IS a dysfunction of this system. Challenge your paradigm. Oh, and Happy Genocide Day!

Hmm.... This judge must have something on the prosecutor, or, she knows something that could be detrimental to the state.

184167 @Anonymous 6415: Well, now that you mention it, the first people to go west got along fine with the aborigines as a rule. The people who went west, like the aborigines, were focused on living; so long as a direct conflict didn't arise, they mostly ignored each other or even traded. These people didn't want to waste time fighting, they just wanted a life. They were diligent, as a rule.

But then came the influential and the outlaws and the greedy--the unprincipled who oppressed everyone: The "early adopters" and the aborigines alike.

They always do.

Anarchists promise, "I wouldn't do any of that." But the problem is that anarchists can't speak for anyone but their own person; they have no control over the unprincipled by their very belief. That some people are unprincipled is part of human nature and doesn't magically disappear without government. The idea that, "We'd be fine if we could just get rid of government," is a pipe dream--things wouldn't be fine at all.

There was a saying in the old west, "There is no law west of the Mississippi, and no God west of the Pecos." (There are variations.) That arose because of all the problems with the anarchic state that existed during that period.The law came when people got tired of rule by whoever had the biggest gun, the most guns, the most friends, or the least compunction. That pattern was repeated over and over in the west, in town after town. Anarchists assert that no law is necessary, but all through that period the people did not agree; long before the states came, local law replaced anarchy so as to restrain the unprincipled.

82145 @ Nickel's 2 Bits "The law came when people got tired of
rule by whoever had the biggest gun, the most guns, the most
friends, or the least compunction." now you're ruled by those with MRAPS & drones & guns/tasers , & this IS the "law" !
Guess it sucks to be American , debating the rights & wrongs of your history while civilized society circles the drain , real hands-on approach to dealing with the problem !

108242 The only thing left we have to do that we have refused to utilize is aggressive force against all cops and all politicians, judges, etc, etc. These people (98% of them) are criminals to various degrees and get away with it because they feel above the Law, aka, the Constitution, and we let them! Yeah, we need to get downright aggressive, organize and start raiding police depts, arresting the criminals, politicians, etc, etc. We gotta take it all the way if we ever expect to get this country restored and in working order again. That's just my opinion on it.
