The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports a juvenile court official testified Friday that Ethan Couch’s parents will be charged $1,170 a month. Couch was placed in a state hospital where his treatment costs $715 a day.Its bad enough he killed four people. I was ticked when the little, arrogant SOB walked off and acted annoyed when he was detained by the cops.
I was more annoyed that his lawyer had the gumption to say he didn't deserve any jailtime because he was too rich to understand the consequences.
I got downright sick when the judge (Jean Boyd) agreed and said he could have serve probation in a yoga, horse-riding, swimming pool luxury spa to get "treatment" instead of jail.
Then I was outraged this February when the same judged permanently closed any chance for any jail time.
And now I'm sick.
Turns out the extremely wealthy parents only have to pay a small fraction of the cost... the taxpayer's will pick up the rest.
There really is two Americas.
