In a move that makes absolutely no sense to me 18-year-old Brittani Hardcastle was sentenced to 15 days in jail and three years probation for the videotaped beating of Victoria Lindsay. She also has the usual stipulations of not contacting the media for profit and can’t belong to any social networking sites.
Why it doesn’t make sense to me is that Hardcastle is the only one to get jail time. All previous suspects were given probation and had to write letters of apology.
Was Hardcastle the sacrificial lamb? I have no problem with her serving jail time, as a matter of fact, it should have been more. However, if you’re going to sentence one of them to jail then why not sentence all of them?
Can we officially call this a travesty of justice now?
