Not two weeks after being cleared of a slew of child labor charges, Sholom Rubashkin, the ultra-Orthodox owner of the Agriprocessors Glatt kosher meat-packing plant in Postville, Iowa, has been sentenced to 27 years in prison for the 86 federal financial fraud charges of which he was convicted late last year. Prosecutors had requested a 25-year sentence. Rubashkin is 51.

I think, that based on what’s been said in news, this is a gross miscarraige of justice and a misuse of our already overburdened prison system? Does society need 27 yrs. Protection from this man? Does 27 years in prison sound fair? I don’t t think so
,Who is to benefit from this overprosecution?
