Justice Inequality For Rich & Poor, Black + White

This episode of The Lip's Crime Time talks about a recent murder case where a privileged young man got off on a light sentence. While some folks familiar with the local culture have argued that this sentence means that this man will be under the state's thumb well past the age of legal majority, not all see it this way. For my part, I see this sort of thing as the manifestation of the moral corruption of a community diseased by Empire. I'm embedding the whole episode below, but the Affluenza thing is discussed right away; the other cases relating to the episode's topic focus are of interest, as they too show this corruption. (Note: the host and the guests are far more mainstream in their thinking than what you see on Buzzsaw, so don't expect radically different argumentation.)
