WTF North Carolina? Man Gets 10 Months of Robbing Bank

Seriously? I mean, I know North Carolina is full of dirty hippies hookers and devil worshiping Democrats but are they so far down the road to social anarchy that they’re giving bank robbers less than a year in jail? Is that really going to deter this scumbag from a life of crime?

From WSPA:

SYLVA, N.C. (AP) — A Western Carolina University student will spend at least 10 months in prison for robbing a credit union with a toy gun.

Twenty-one-year-old Brian Anthony Edwards pleaded guilty to common law robbery Tuesday and was sentenced to between 10 and 21 months in jail. District Attorney Michael Bonfoey says the junior from Hendersonville majoring in computer information systems confessed to the holdup.

Law officers locked down the campus in Cullowhee three weeks ago after the robbery at a State Employees Credit Union branch across from the school.

The story goes on to report that caught this cretin red handed with the plastic gun, mask and money. But he only gets 10 months?

We crime bloggers often talk about hug-a-thug justice but this is ridiculous.

    Not any more than it would deter sex offenders. We may just as well do away with the whole criminal justice system and keep the courts only for lawsuits.
