Belongs in prison

The news story “Former justice Melvin sentenced to 3 years of house arrest, 2 years of probation” (May 8 and TribLIVE.com) brought home exactly what is wrong with the system. She should be in a cell instead of her $555,000 home.

As usual, it seems that the “ins” take care of their own. We have people in jail who have done less. This is why lifetime politicians and judges should be held to a higher standard.

She didn't have to pay restitution until she was resentenced. Joan Orie Melvin has to be making 10 times more money than the average working-class person.

What I am thinking is that she is in politics and most politicians don't care about anyone but themselves. Absolute power corrupts absolutely!
