Democrats....beatings, shmeatings...

A friend of mine, two months ago, had a problem with the police in regard to her driving;  I think she ran a red light.  Of course, this was two days before an amputation of her left arm, so she was 'slightly' diverted from paying good attention.
When she went to court, a month after the amputation, she approached the judge when called up, and agreed that she'd done wrong.   She told me she suddenly started crying so hard with fear and embarrassment to have to discuss her arm in public like that she couldn't speak .  The judge caught on and asked "was this situation soon before your amputation?"   She shook her head "Yes" and he gave her community service hours....30 hours, instead of 60, because he felt so bad for her.

So, when I see THIS, it gives me pause. Here are important bits from the link:

"A multi-millionaire tech-entrepreneur, who was once named one of America’s ‘most eligible bachelors’, has avoided jail time despite allegedly beating and kicking his girlfriend 117 times in a 30 minute attack.
Gurbaksh Chahal, 31, was charged with 45 felony counts over the incident, which took place in his San Francisco apartment in August last year.
Police obtained CCTV which allegedly show Chahal, who ironically describes himself as ‘die hard’, kicking his then-partner in the head multiple times and attempting to smother her.

Chahal faced 45 felony charged and two misdemeanour charges based on the security footage San Francuisco police pulled from his bedroom.
The 45 counts also included Assault With a Deadly Weapon (not a fire arm), which in this case is cited as a pillow.
However, as the court case proceeded, a judge ruled the video inadmissible as the San Francisco Police Department had obtained it without a warrant. Chahal’s girlfriend also withdrew her testimony and refused to cooperate

In the end, on April 16, Chahal pleaded guilty to one charge of domestic violence battery and one charge of battery and was sentenced to just 25 hours of community service, three years’ probation and a 52-week domestic violence training course."

From The Daily Caller:

"Chahal is a prominent donor to Democratic causes and has visited the White House on two occasions since 2011 to meet with Obama.
According to Open Secrets, the California-based girlfriend beater has given over $108,000 to Democratic campaigns and causes since 2011. For the 2012 campaign, he gave a whopping $61,600 to the fundraising arm of the Democratic National Committee and $5,000 directly to the Obama presidential campaign.
For the 2014 election cycle, he has given $20,000 to the DNC and $6,200 to Ro Khanna, a Democratic candidate for California’s 17th U.S. House seat who strongly supports the Violence Against Women Act. In the part of the website that exclusively deals with “Women’s Issues,” Khanna outlines his plan to stamp out violence against women."

Wasn't he lucky the girlfriend refused to cooperate with the court?  And isn't it great that the cops obtained the video without a warrant so he got so little punishment?  :)

To be fair, The Daily Caller does mention that the DNC gave the money from "this last 2014 cycle" back when they heard about this.  Or when the media did, I'm not sure :-) 

What a guy, huh? 

Think his punishment was weighted correctly considering my friend's driving infraction?    Of course, my girlfriend couldn't pay anybody off.

Z - The punishment is not always fair in the courts. That's just the way it is. Some people get off easy when others have to pay the penalty. It is a fact of life.
It's not right but that's the way it is.

Is there any evidence that the fact the scumbag is a Democratic contributor contributed to the ruling or are you just getting your knickers in a knot?

Z said...

Sue....thanks.

Ducky, is there any better evidence than this when you're screeching about errant Republicans?

Thanks for coming by, both of you!

Gosh ... this is hard.

Let's see:
1. Democratic contributor
2. San Francisco court
3. There is nothing more consistent than Ducky and Sue's idiocy ...

Yep ... life is good.

Oh what a blessed piece of wisdom Ms. Hanes.

That was errr...so thoughtful.

Yes...a fact of life, corrupted justice? Move along...nothing to see here.
