Corrupt cops sentenced to house arrest, not jail, because the ordeal of being investigated, tried, and convicted of corruption was difficult for them and their families?
I don't know, perhaps if the convicted had owned-up to their crimes in the first place their families would not have been put through a "catastrophic" 12 year ordeal. I fail to see how the impact of long investigation and trial somehow constitutes a mitigating circumstance when it comes to sentencing the convicted. Can you imagine the implications of that kind of precedent?
Two standards, apparently.
