It’s good to be the Judge

the-judge.jpgMe, I get a DUI, I get tossed in the clink.

You, you get a DUI, you get tossed in the clink.

You or me, we get a second DUI, you better believe we get tossed in the clink.

A retired judge, he gets a DUI, he does four days of pro bono legal work.

A retired judge, he gets a second DUI, he does a whopping eight days of pro bono legal work.

They spin this as just part of the work release program, but it smells fucking fishy, don’t it?

In my jurisdiction, most first DUI's are given a PBJ, unless you hurt someone or do something really bad. I sat in on a sentencing for a guy's 4th DUI in which the cops had to run him off the road for him to stop, and he only got like 4 or 5 months in jail.
