What's next? A weekend?

The Dharun Ravi verdict was one of those things where you'll always remember where you were when you learned of it. For me, it was in a dentist chair in Clinton. I asked the techs to hold off on the procedure until the verdict was handed down, so with gauze in mouth and bib on neck, I listened in disbelief as the incredibly light sentence was passed. "30 days", I shrieked, surely startling the 2 women who were expecting a routine day of "drilling and filling". "This kid got a vaction! Not a jail sentence!", I continued my rant. By now the dentist and tech wanted to resume their work, so it was back in the chair, fighting the urge to shake my head in disgust. Fast forward a few days, and now the sentence could be as little as 20 DAYS, since New Jersey "usually" trims time off of light sentences before they even start. Somehow we went from 5 to 10 YEARS to as little as 20 DAYS! How did this happen? What happened to the hate crime conviction, and the laundry list of other convictions? And to even include probation as part of the sentence is truly laughable. Sure, the first thing Ravi will do after is prison is wire up a webcam to spy on another unsuspecting victim. Puh-leez. I think we need to take a long, hard look at how we punish those convicted of hate crimes. But I did learn 1 important lesson from all this; never schedule a dentist appointment when a sentence is scheduled to be handed down.
