    awesome, finally the lying, profiteering bastard gets his due after lying, cheating, stealing and not paying taxes for many years.

    On November 2, 2006, Hovind and his wife, Jo, were found guilty by a jury in a Pensacola, Florida federal court of numerous federal tax and tax-related offenses. Hovind is currently being held by the Escambia County Sheriff's Office awaiting sentencing on January 9, 2007. He has been ordered to forfeit $430,400 and faces a maximum of 288 years in prison.

    American legal system is a joke.

    It's typical grandstanding by the judicial system.How in the world is the fella going to possibly serve 288 years?

    "Kent Hovind, founder of Creation Science Evangelism and Dinosaur Adventure Land in Pensacola, was found guilty of 58 counts"

    See what happens if you're convicted of 58 counts of murder. Please if the court systems where to establish a limit on charges anyone that was to be in prison soon would go on a crime run. It doesn't sound fair on paper but lets hear a better proposal. :rolleyes:

    If you kill someone, why the hell shouldn't you die in prison? YOU FUCKING KILLED SOMEONE. God dammit. For 58 counts in murder, you should get 58 life sentences. 7-8 years in prison for taking someone's life is a joke: 288 years / 58 counts = 5 years/count. It's a joke if murder is only 2-3 years "more serious" than fucking over the government. I'd like to hear some reasoning as to why murder shouldn't automatically be life in prison.

    I am not arguing that 7 years is sufficient punishment for murder (though I can't find anything that supports that 7 years is the median sentence for murder). Even if this is correct generally if you build counts of murder even 3 its usually death, 3 counts of tax evasion is not death.

    I am saying that 288 years is well deserved for the 58 counts he committed.

    It's because of states like massachuesettes, california, etc. who are too concerned about "human rights for everyone" and other nonsense.


    This is why I love Texas. They have possibly the harshest punishment system in the entire US.

    Just cause we don't have the death penalty doesn't mean we're soft on killers :). I'd hate to sit in jail for 60-70 years, I'd much rather just die and get it over with (assuming I knew that I was guilty and wouldn't be acquitted of charges). Seriously though, who would ever take years and years of butt rape over death?

    Don't make protective custody sound like a privledge that lets some asshole have a prison for himself. Its solitary confinement in a cell for 23 hours a day, just imagine what kind of mental torture that would be.

    As far as the 7 year average for murder that statistic was obviously created by some dipshit who factored in all the voluntary manslaughter and lesser degree murder charges to make it seem like our judicial system is fucked.

    If you go out and kill someone in cold blood you will not be serving anywhere near seven years. The crimes that reduce that average so low are those who kill people who attack their friends, or that guy who shot and killed the guy that kidnapped his daughter, or shooting someone whos breaking into your home. Murder is still murder, but the biggest factor in mitigating prison sentences in murder trials is the state of mind of the criminal.

    If someone doesn't pay their taxes to the government, its the citizens that have to pay the price. You think all these tax revenues just funnel into someones paycheck up high? No you idiots, its what pays for your education, your schools and roads, and everything else you assholes take for granted.
