How much more insane must are laws get. Every year more new and tougher laws are enacted here in the U.S. for every type of offense. We are already the most incarcerated nation in the world with more people doing more time for more ridiculous things then China, Russia, and every other nation in the world. Of course as usual its all about fear mongering. Politicians warn you that you are not safe, and everyone cowers in fear, and god forbid the politician that wants to try to bring some sense of reason back to the laws. When that happens the fear mongerers (usually republican) scream out that said politician is “Soft on Crime” and all the Soccer moms and scared republcians run out and vote for the guy who is trumpeting fear. Check out this Video of a guy convicted of drunk driving. He was walking his bike across his own lawn, a cop pulled up and ticketed him for not having a headlight on the bike (!?!?) Then arrested him for DUI because he had one or two. Unbelievable.
