    Sad. Very sad. That much jailtime for a TV. And it's in black and white.

    While I agree with you in principle, our prisons are far too crowded to let petty thieves take up the space that should be occupied by a child molester or a serial killer/rapist.

    Not all that surprising a story - a darker skinned man took a television from a lighter skinned woman in 1970 in North Carolina. While like Mikey Metalhead I have no sympathy for anyone who would take from others what is not theirs to take, I can't help but wonder if the sentence would've been the same if he'd have had lighter skin. I sure hope race relations have improved enough where there's hope for equal punishment for the same crime, no matter what the skin tone is of the person that commits it.

    The fact that he was black probably had a lot to do with it. Either way, 35 or 40 years in prison for stealing a black and white television is pure stupidity. We as a society know that, that's why it wouldn't happen today...it shouldn't have happened then.

    Am I supposed to feel bad for a man who got locked up for roughing up a 84 year old woman and stealing her TV for the purpose of hiding it in the woods?

    34 eyars is a long time. I'm sure his race had something to do with the sentencing, but probably not as much as his beating up an old lady and taking her television.
