"Stephanie George and Judge Roger Vinson had quite different opinions about the lockbox seized by the police from her home in Pensacola. She insisted she had no idea that a former boyfriend had hidden it in her attic. Judge Vinson considered the lockbox, containing a half-kilogram of cocaine, to be evidence of her guilt.

But the defendant and the judge fully agreed about the fairness of the sentence he imposed in federal court."*

Even the judge for Stephanie George's case felt she didn't deserve a life sentence for her involvement in two minor drug dealings and her boyfriend hiding drugs in her house. Then why did she get a life sentence? Why did she get her free life taken away when HSBC knowingly funneled 60 trillion dollars for drug cartels and al Qaeda and got off with a slap on the wrist? Where is the justice for this woman, and is this proof of a justice system that frees the rich and condemns ordinary citizens? Cenk Uygur breaks it down, and asks you to read into Stephanie George's case and join his petition for President Obama to give her clemency.
