Right?

rich people are paying bribes and pulling strings to get their kids into the best schools?

It's hard to imaging this happening....

So .... you can get an athletic scholarship for your child, even when your child isn't any good at that sport?
Does that never come up in regular day-to-day conversation amongst friends and family? Just wondering.
I'm not even mad ... I'm more amazed, than mad.
Crazy what the rich and powerful and beautiful are capable of, when they want something.

Staff and faculty at SD state institutions don't even get a reduced tuition rate for their children.

I guess we aren't part of the 1 %.

Great message these parents are sending to their kids.

And not good at the sport? Some got scholarships for sports they never played.


Put the parents and coaches in jail. Have them do hard time. That is the only way the wealthy will learn that white collar crime has consequences too.

I remember filling out the family financial statement for college in my final HS year....74-75. I remember the part that said providing incorrect information is a federal felony crime and could result in fine or imprisonment.

I guess the wealthy just ignore those warnings.

And appropriately so since are judicial system never prosecutes the wealthy.

Take ALL their money away.

Make them pay that way. That will be suffering they cannot bear.

Loughlin gets a million dollar bail

Paid half a mill for kids to go to

USC??!!??

Wow, you'd think it would be a better school


With the money these fools have thrown around, who knows what else they've used their $$$ to cover up or cheat at.

"Breaking Bad" star Dean Norris did not hold back after federal authorities revealed a top-secret investigation into an alleged scam involving rich and famous clients – including Hollywood actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman – paying millions to a network of counselors and coaches to ensure their privileged children be granted admission to some of the country’s most prestigious universities.

“When I think of all the kids who studied hard, stayed up late, had part-time jobs to pay for their college application fees, and then were denied rightly deserved places in elite colleges because some rich f—wads cheated for their already privileged kids— I’m disgusted,” Norris tweeted Tuesday.

Paul Manafort doesn't deserve a prison sentence. No nonviolent offender does.


BS

I guess the people who were behind all the home foreclosures in 2008 never did any harm to anyone.

No prison for nonviolent offenders. That person is out of their mind.

Where does computer crime reside? Nonviolent offense or violent offense. If it screws up someone's computer with a virus, maybe nonviolent. But if it shuts down an electrical grid, is that still nonviolent?

Just got back from Florida today. Jackie's team finished 6-4 after a 5-1 start. Better than one win when she was a freshman.
