Texas teen avoids prison because he’s wealthy and apparently suffering from “affluenza”


It’s no secret that the mechanisms of society
often work in the favor of the wealthy. But, a case of a wealthy Texas teen literally
getting away with murder has proved to be a slap in the face to some. 16-year-old rich kid Ethan Couch was driving
seven friends in his SUV in June. With a blood-alcohol level three times the
adult legal limit the drunken teen caused a crash that killed four people. His actions caused the death of 24-year-old
Breanna Mitchell, father of three Brian Jennings and mother-daughter pair Hollie and Shelby
Boyles. Now, you might ask: How do you defend somebody
like Couch? By pulling a bullshit legal strategy out of
your ass! Couch’s defense psychologist argued that he
was a victim of wealth and suffered from something called “affluenza”. Basically, that because of his opulent lifestyle,
he never learned the simple life lesson that actions have consequences… So the judge thought it’d be a good idea to
continue treating him like a spoiled brat and spared him jail time… That’ll teach
him!

    "Victim of wealth"? "Affluenza"?? REALLY?
    They basically acquitted him because he had the traits of a sociopath!

    Maybe that's why a group of rich kids got away with bullying my friends and I, but when I did something, I got arrested. Some social worker said that we all should have got arrested.

    He will have to live with the fact he has the blood of 4 innocent people on his hands. Karma is going to bite him in the ass one day and its going to hurt.

  22. Zodiac69 says:

    In his final hours of life he will find himself with regret for Jesus does punish those who slip through life with No remorse or consequences. You cannot buy your way of HELL. He will live with pain through out his life. Karma is very REAL.

    I actually knew Brian Jennings personally. He was my youth pastor at Alsbury Baptist Church in Burleson TX. He had been helping my through my depression and was keeping me in the right track. When he died I completely lost control and tried ending it but his youngest son Micah talked to me and I could see Brian through him. If it wasn't for Micah, Ethen Coach would of caused 5 deaths
