Too Rich for Jail?  Affluenza and our Justice System

Affluenza ~ a term used by critics of consumerism.  A painful, contagious, socially transmitted condition of overload, debt, anxiety and waste resulting from the dogged pursuit of more.  ~ Wikipedia

In December of 2013, State District Judge Jean Boyd sentenced a North Texas teenager, Ethan Couch[6], to 10 years probation for driving while drunk and killing four pedestrians after his attorneys successfully argued that the teen suffered from affluenza and needed rehabilitation, and not prison.
