After reading this entire thread, all I can say is that this is by far the best solution for our shitty penal system in America. Snowolf has hit the proverbial nail on the head. If this solution was implemented, the people of America would have a fair chance if they ever found their way into the penal system. As for Phenom, since you can't see the flaws in our system and feel that the laws are so easy to not break, good luck to you if you ever run down a pedestrian in your car because you were distracted by your Big Mac or Frappuccino. I can guarantee that your eyes would open a little more to the injustice of our so called justice system.
