As It Turns Out Judicial Corruption Is A Bad Thing

Two judges in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, are in serious hot water because it looks like they railroaded juveniles through their system so that they could be shipped off to work camps and be exploited for slave labor. In a lot of cases, it looks like the kids were innocent of any crime. At least the judges didn't sell themselves cheap; they allegedly got over two and a half million bucks.

This is the sort of thing that the law needs to come down on really hard. Thousands of these kids have had their lives ruined from it. It puts the entire judicial system in question. People are already cynical enough about the courts and what people in the legal system do. The system needs to police itself because there is no other system to do it with. It's just a disgrace.

These two judges need to do a lot more than a 7 year minimum. Corruption and a completely depraved indifference to the lives of children, that ought be worth ten or fifteen.
