As usual, there were a few good qualified candidates for the spot this week. I had narrowed it down to two finalists. One of them being the Kansas City Royals. No, I can't stand baseball, but I can't help but notice how they've been getting bashed in the news lately and deservedly so. They're currently at a league worst 11-35 for a record. At the pace they're on, they could possibly go down in history having the worst record in the history of Major League Baseball. Let's hope they swing for the fences and do something right by actually getting that distinction.
The jurors returned from deliberating this week and handed down a guilty verdict for both of them on ALL counts. The sentencing part still has to take place but they will be serving a minimum 20-year sentence with a possibility of 30 years. At their ages, that will most likely be the rest of their natural born lives. That's just how it should be.
Naturally, Kenny Boy had the nerve to sit there and say that he still believes he's innocent. You've got to be kidding me?! They all sat there and intentionally mis-lead employees and investors about the current state of their company. He was talking people into putting more money into Enron stock while he's selling his shares to get as much money as possible. There are people who lost THOUSANDS of dollars from their 401(k) retirement plans while he comes out as a multi-millionaire. Personally, I'm thinking prison isn't good enough for them. Certainly not the cushy white collar one that they'll probably end up at.
The sad part is you know their attorneys will waste even more of our tax dollars trying to get this whole thing tied up in the appeal process. And because of all the loot these jerks have, they'll be free the entire time. Then when they run out of appeals and do actually end up serving time, it will probably be bargained down and cut down even more because of "good behavior" to where they end up doing 10 years or so.
I think their punishment should be equal to that of what they inflicted on everyone else. Yes, they still do prison time. Yes, it should be 20 years minimum. But then after they get out, if they're still alive, they shouldn't be left with a penny to live on. If they want the finer things in life-- like food, water, shelter -- they have to work for it. And make them work at the worst McDonalds ever. Put them at one deep in the hood and give them the graveyard shift.
I've heard some people say they should get the death penalty for what they've done. I've even heard others say that it's unfair how they got that type of jail time after OJ gets to walk for what he "allegedly" did. Well the system is what it is. God will give eventually pass His judgment on them. Until them, they remain the epitome of the word loser.
