Life in America still leaves me feeling very clueless. Much of my adult life was spent working overseas.
In my absence America became a bit more complicated.
I am all for simplicity. I feel so alone in this wishful thinking.
Now onto strange but true news...
Recently the local jails were discovered to be overcrowded.
Incredibly they ran a one day plea bargain special for time served. 16 inmates immediately plea bargained their cases and were released.
Ain't that something.
Typically a plea bargain is an arrangement to plead guilty to the crime charged or plead to a lessor crime in exchange for a specific sentence consideration.
Now if one happens to be innocent and thrown in jail by mistake, this type of enticement can wreck a good record. One has to wait months maybe years to finally go to court and prove innocence.
Justice is strange.
