Robert H. Richards IV, a wealthy heir to the du Pont fortune, has been spared prison after being convicted of raping his three year old daughter. Delaware Superior Court Judge Jan Jurden sentenced the admitted serial child-rapist to probation on the ground that he “would not fare well” in prison. The case echoes the affluenza scandal in which a judge spared a rich child a prison sentence after he had killed four people on the grounds that he was so rich that he couldn’t distinguish right from wrong.

Rich, admitted child rapist granted probation because he “would not not fare well” in prison [trigger warning] - Boing Boing

This judge and prosecutor should be disbarred, and Robert H. Richards IV should spend the rest of his life in jail. This is a disgusting and reprehensible miscarriage of justice.

"You want to photograph me eating chicken?""Yep.""Well, if I let you, I need you to help me deliver a message.""What’s that?""I work at this library. And before that, I was coming here for twenty years. It’s my favorite place in the world. As many people know, the main reading room of this library is supported by seven floors of books, which contain one of the greatest research collections in the world. Recently, the library administration has decided to rip out this collection, send the books to New Jersey, and use the space for a lending library. As part of the consolidation, they are going to close down the Mid-Manhattan Library Branch as well as the Science, Industry, and Business Library. When everything is finished, one of the greatest research libraries in the world will become a glorified internet cafe. Now read that back to me."

Over a million people have lost their extended unemployment benefits as of the end of 2013, and another 2.5 million are about to over the next few months. Perhaps our priorities are upside down?
