Hands On Justice

Last June I blogged about a young guy in Louisiana, Jared Gipson, who unsuccessfully tried robbing a beauty college. Not only did he get caught but the beauticians managed to beat the shit out of him before the police arrived. The latest chapter involves his sentence for the crime.

I find it interesting that his sentence was reduced because the women involved lobbied for leniency. Apparently enough of them were able to slug Jared or whack him with something that they were satisfied that justice had been served.

The general rule is that crime victims have to be satisfied with impotent courtroom curses at the perpetrator for crimes that most likely occurred months or years prior to the sentencing.
