Miscarriage of Justice

In this morning's paper there were two stories virtually side-by side. One was about a homeless man who had spent 13 years in jail after trying to steal food from a church kitchen. Thirteen years for that!? Really!? Could they have not cut this man a break? He was probably just hungry! The other was about a man charged with DUI for the 7th time! This man was not in jail and he had a valid driver's license! Now tell me, which one of these people should have spent 13 years in jail? Which one obviously has the money to afford a better lawyer? Our justice system is so screwed up....just like our political system.
