Six months for stealing $300,000.00. That comes to $50,0000 a month income. How is that going to keep others from trying the same thing?

Pay attention to Judge Benson. The U.S. has the highest incarceration rate in the world, by a large margin. We have 5% of the world's population and 25% of the world's incarcerated population. And I'll rephrase this for the censor: Don't you think this nation has some fundamental issues to address that have resulted in so many people being incarcerated? We are either worse as a people than any other nation, or we are too harsh against our citizens. either way, we need to address it.

Yes, we are experiencing an ever increase lack of morality, and the liberals want to excuse it by shifting responsibility off the shoulders of the perpetrators. I'd have more sympathy for this convicted criminal if he'd reported his dishonesty before getting caught.

He'd still be stealing public funds today if they hadn't found out.

No problems with ethics or morality from 2000 to 2008?

No one in America was sent to prison for theft during these years of CONservative rule?

Just a reminder that White Collar crime still pays rather nicely in America- let us distinguish the type of crime in our comments here because all evidence indicates they are treated differently- not all laws matter the same to us- that is fine but we should ponder it from time to time

Are you suggesting that society should bear the responsibility of Mr. Matthew Dahl's dishonesty?

Liberals of the 1930s would be considered as ultra conservative by today's standards.
