Rich kid;Ethan Couch, kills 4 people in drunken crash…. no jail-time, son.

Basically this lil waste of ejaculate drove drunk, killed 4 people including a mother and daughter, and is now facing no jail-time because of “Afluenza” – or the “problem” with haven been given too much and not have any limits set upon him because of his wealth.”

You got that right…This kid gets to use being rich as a psychological defense…

This is the most egregious and most disgusting act by the courts that I have seen in a long time. A long time. And that’s saying a lot after the whole Trayvon Martin debacle.

Says a LOT!

What disgusts me the most is that if you can serve no jail-time due to suffering “Afluenza”,  can someone else receive no jail sentence for “Brokeuenza”? The fact that being broke and not having things and suffering a life of overly strict limitations? Like if my kids have nothing to eat and I break into the store to steal food or money to feed my kids, do i get no jail due to “Brokerthanamufugga-itis?” If Bsmuv runs out on the job and stabs a racist dude in the face then goes to flight school, learns to fly a plane, get a plane then come back and fly that plane directly into a racist’s fo’head, can he plead: “Tiredofgettingtreatedlikeaniggeruenza?” Sound ridiculous? Sound offensive? Sound absurd??

It’s no more offensive and absurd than some gatdamn Afluenza….

I swear the ridiculousness of this country and the benefits of being a rich white kid, which is DOUBLE if not TRIPLE privilege, never ceases to amaze and offend me. It’s like you do battle against race, gender or economic based privileges and as soon as you claim a few victories, that bytch comes back like an episode of Dragon Ball Z and does some shyt far more heinous than the last bout. Letting you know that; Bytch…this isn’t even my final form…

Read the full story below…..

To the families of the victims, Ethan Couch was a killer on the road, a drunken teenage driver who caused a crash that left four people dead.

To the defense, the youth is himself a victim — of “affluenza,” according to one psychologist — the product of wealthy, privileged parents who never set limits for the boy.

To a judge, who sentenced Couch to 10 years’ probation but no jail time, he’s a defendant in need of treatment.

The decision disappointed prosecutors and stunned victims’ family members, who say they feel that Couch got off too easy. Prosecutors had asked for the maximum of 20 years behind bars.

“Let’s face it. … There needs to be some justice here,” Eric Boyles, who lost his wife and daughter, told CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360″ on Wednesday night.

“For 25 weeks, I’ve been going through a healing process. And so when the verdict came out, I mean, my immediate reaction is — I’m back to week 1. We have accomplished nothing here. My healing process is out the window,” he said.

Lawyers for Couch, 16, had argued that the teen’s parents should share part of the blame for the crash because they never set limits for the boy and gave him everything he wanted.

According to CNN affiliate WFAA, a psychologist called by the defense described Couch as a product of “affluenza.”

He reportedly testified that the teen’s family felt wealth bought privilege, and that Couch’s life could be turned around with one to two years of treatment and no contact with his parents.

Couch was sentenced by a juvenile court judge Tuesday. If he violates the terms of his probation, he could face up to 10 years of incarceration, according to a statement from the Tarrant County Criminal District Attorney’s Office.

Judge Jean Boyd told the court she would not release Couch to his parents, but would work to find the teen a long-term treatment facility.

“There are absolutely no consequences for what occurred that day,” said Boyles. “The primary message has to absolutely be that money and privilege can’t buy justice in this country.”

His wife, Hollie Boyles, and daughter, Shelby, left their home to help Breanna Mitchell, whose SUV had broken down. Brian Jennings, a youth pastor, was driving past and also stopped to help.

All four were killed when the teen’s pickup plowed into the pedestrians. Couch’s vehicle also struck a parked car, which then slid into another vehicle driving in the opposite direction.

Two people riding in the bed of the teen’s pickup were tossed in the crash and severely injured.

One is no longer able to move or talk because of a brain injury, while the other suffered internal injuries and broken bones.

“There is nothing the judge could have done to lessen the suffering for any of those families,” said defense attorney Scott Brown, CNN affiliate KTVT reported.

“(The judge) fashioned a sentence that is going to keep Ethan under the thumb of the justice system for the next 10 years,” he said. “And if Ethan doesn’t do what he’s supposed to do, if he has one misstep at all, then this judge, or an adult judge when he’s transferred, can then incarcerate him.”

Earlier on the night of the accident, June 15, Couch and some friends had stolen beer from a local Walmart. Three hours after the crash, tests showed he had a blood alcohol content of 0.24, three times the legal limit, according to the district attorney’s office.

“We are disappointed by the punishment assessed but have no power under the law to change or overturn it,” said Assistant District Attorney Richard Alpert. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and we regret that this outcome has added to the pain and suffering they have endured.”

It is very rare, but not impossible, for prosecutors to challenge the sentence on the ground that it was too lenient, CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin said.

“To give him a pass this time given the egregious nature of his conduct — four deaths — is just incomprehensible,” she said. [source]

    As I think I’ve said before; best justice system money can buy.

  • http://www.fitandhealthytoo.bodybyvi.com/ Bubba_Renaldo_Garcia_Rodriguez

    This pisses me off. This is why nobody has faith in this bs justice system. He has a hard life being rich?? SERIOUSLY??? But they locking up people (we know who) for weed for years, but this mfer gets to go home. Hurricane Bubba would have gone through that court room if it were me. I feel sorry for the victim’s family.

  • Chidiva

    So not only did this…..I can’t think of anything to call him,Kill 4 people,he maimed the fvck out of 2 of his friends,His underage ass also STOLE beer from satan’s warehouse(walmart) and He get’s to basically get off with less than a slap on the wrist?In my next life,I’m coming back as a rich,white I don’t care what gender.

    • Troy Frazier

      I think the official count was 4 dead, 9 injured.

      Yeah.

    • Leo the Yardie Chick

      “In my next life,I’m coming back as a rich,white I don’t care what gender.”

      For real. Earlier, I wanted to come back as a rich person’s dog. Now? Eff dat! Filthy-rich white consequence-repelling whatever all the live-long day!

      Seriously, I’d face more jail time with a small bag of weed, and he gets probation on murder, wounding, robbery, and drunk driving? The world is not level.

      • http://elantresses.blogspot.com/ Tina Beanie

        He also got caught passed out drunk in a car with a naked, drunk 14 year old girl!! WTF?!?!? Who IS this kids family that he has this much pull?!?

  • Troy Frazier

    A certain Samuel L. Jackson film comes to mind. Couldn’t have been my wife or kid that died in that shit.

    • melette

      This right there.

  • Beffa

    *deep sigh* so let me get this straight. this murderer was raised without ever being taught right from wrong and cause and effect. OK I get that but then he goes out and murders 4 people so the judge says well he’s a product of this made up psychological disease or whatever. But instead of actually using this to finally TEACH him in real life that every thing you do has consequences. You basically send him to a treatment center who can only “tell” him that he could, might, sort of, kind of, maybe get in trouble if he does bad things.

    I needed to get that straight.

    The CNN legal analyst said that it is rare but not impossible for the prosecution to challenge the ruling on the basis that it is too lenient. I hope that they do.

    I am not a fan of wrongful death suits but I want the families of the 4 victims to sue this family for every red dime they have.

    • Lately25

      ALL of what you just said… I want ALL your parents money, if they own something, I need it transferred over into MY name! I got your dam* privilege…

      • melette

        Yes, I would sue them for everything they have. EVERY SINGLE THING. They wouldn’t have to worry about using affluenza as a plea again.

        • ToodySezHey

          basically, they’d be sued for the socks on their feet and down to the last penny.

    • Omelette!

      I don’t have any deep understanding of the American justice system. Are judges elected or appointed? Where are they drawn from? How do they achieve such extraordinary individual discretion in a system of set penalties? I don’t get it.

      • DameloSuave

        Both, but unless they perform some heinous act, they’re pretty much untouchable. In some counties, anyone can be a judge – you don’t even have to have a law degree or even know the law – just pass the test & you’re in…smh

    • DameloSuave

      Alla this. The (il)logic behind this judge’s thinking…

  • Lately25

    “(The judge) fashioned a sentence that is going to keep Ethan under the thumb of the justice system for the next 10 years,” ‘

    We have seen how the justice system keeps an eye on rich white folks, so basically he’ll be free to do it again….

    • Troy Frazier

      He didn’t need to “fashion” shit! We already have a system to keep criminals “under thumb.” The shit is called jail.

      • ToodySezHey

        YES!

  • AshMi313

    What will this judge say when this kid is on his 5th DUI? The fact that he knows no boundaries is even more reason to lock his azz up… I bet he’d learn what boundaries are on D Block…

  • Hautie

    This is a local story here in Dallas/Ft.Worth area… and believe me… no one thought he would be walking out with only probation and rehab. No one. So much noise has been made over this case. That if that was an elected Judge, I suspect she won’t be on the bench again after her term is over.

    But I have seen enough footage of this 16 year old boy. And I am going to say it will take him less than a year to screw up. He has had the biggest smirk on his face through all of it. He seems like he is just being put out by all of it.

    The local sheriff for Tarrant County (where the accident happen) is going to be on this kid, like a duck on a June bug. I suspect by this Summer this kid will be drinking out at the lake. And that sheriff will have his ass snapped up.

    And the kid was driving a one ton truck, when he plowed into all those folks. And flipped it! Geez it was a brutal scene.

    But in fairness… all his little friends in the truck with him… had all been involved with the beer stealing and drinking on their own. So their own dumb ass behavior, is on them. From all the talk that has been going on… they did this mess every weekend. They just finally killed a bunch of innocent folks.

    • marina

      Wait. Every weekend? Did I read that? So what about the others that got maimed that were accomplices?

  • BSmuv

    “If Bsmuv runs out on the job and stabs a racist dude in the face then goes to flight school, learns to fly a plane, get a plane then come back and fly that plane directly into a racist’s fo’head, can he plead: “Tiredofgettingtreatedlikean****ruenza?” Sound ridiculous? Sound offensive? Sound absurd??”

    Due to legal reasons I am bound by in my non-disclosure agreement you guys will never truly know just how right here >.< this statement rings in my soul.

  • Mj

    So, vehicular homicide, D.W.I., shoplifting, reckless endangerment of minors, theft by taking, underage consumption of a control substance and all he got was a year or two away from his parents in a house that may be slightly less luxurious as his own home with no fines to pay at all? Dear Santa i change my Christmas wish, I want to be a rich, young white boy like that guy so I can get away with murder. Literally.

  • Jessica Davis

    Soooo, since he is to have no contact with the parents, dies that mean no contact with the parents’ money? Cause I’m kinda thinking with a public defender and no money, his affluenza should clear up real quick.
