We never know what goes on behind closed doors. Here there are two culpable heroin addicts, but
addict no.1 telling the story that the State’s prosecutor wants them to tell gets sentenced 2 years and addict no. 2 gets 20 years to life. The judicial system is about the ebb and flow of politics rather than justice. Real justice is what goes around comes around, i.e., vengeance is mine saith the lord.
