Sports Quandary...

Okay, so I just don't get it. I am not an attorney or anything but it seems to me that legal decisions don't always make sense and have little to do with justice or truth.

One NFL player drives drunk and hits and kills a pedestrian. He pays the family of the victim over 4 million dollars, is suspended from the NFL for 1 year and walks free from jail after serving only 24 days.

Another NFL player is convicted of running a dog fighting business and pays over 1 million dollars in damages, is suspended from the NFL for TWO years and is released from prison AFTER SERVING TWO YEARS for harming dogs.

Both of these are horrible crimes and we all make mistakes we regret but when is the loss of human life so reduced that killing a human being is seen as less of a crime than harming animals? I just don't get it.

Do you?
