Have you ever noticed how a famous movie start or athlete gets in trouble with the law and they get probation or a very light sentence? The “supposed” reasons are that they are a low flight risk and they have done good for the community or something else. What makes a movie star better than a construction worker or programmer or waitress? What if the construction worker hasn’t missed any work, has a family and makes a good living, why isn’t he considered not a flight risk? A rich person has more ability to do good for the community yes, but that does not make him any better than a programmer, waitress or construction worker who has to work 40 hours or more every week. Just that their jobs are “appreciated” more than others and they get high salary for it.
The point is that it is not fair to treat famous people better. We need a fair equal system to decide who gets to stay out of jail or who goes into jail.
