Maybe that's why I can't get my head around Criminal Law: it seems so petty to expend such heavy thinking on one (probably bad) person when millions or even billions of people are being harmed by our government's policies. Even our very worst citizens get food and a roof over their head, so we apparently feel that it's a crime worse than murder to not be One Of Us.

I'm sure a lot of people would disagree, and I probably don't even have the intellectual and rhetorical tools to rationally argue for my position (yet), and hell, I may be dead wrong. But my point is that this is what really gets my blood boiling, not whether someone who shot someone else is going to be sentenced to 3 years or 6 years or 11 years.
