Does anyone here know who the sentencing judge is for

David Petraeus?

I would like to write a victims statement letter. We are all victims of his crime. To me no jail time is bullshit.

I take really personally for the following reason. I had cancer a while back in which I was uninsured. I had 169,000k in medical debt with no way out. I was up against the wall and what I did was keep on filing bankruptcies to stall the creditors from garnishing our paychecks and seizing our home that we had lived in for 16 years. Because of my keeping on filing for bankruptcy over and over which I knew that you had to wait 6 years between each one, I was charged with abuse of the US Bankruptcy process ( charged as contempt of Federal Court) I got to spend 328 days in a federal prison as a result.

To me (at least to my perspective) what the general did was WAY! worse and for him not spend a day in jail because of it or have a felony record is complete bullshit!

As victims we have the right to file a victim statement and I encourage each and every one of us to do so!

2. Thank you

I wil be sending a written letter this evening, I know some of it might be bitterness, but I do think it's unfair. I didn't steal anything or do any violence etc and I got 328 days, what he did was a lot worse.

5. I actually agree with you, but the sentencing is a formality--he's negotiated a plea bargain.

There won't be any changes to the deal he's cut. The horse has left the barn.

If you want your outrage registered, take that letter and send a copy to your favorite newspapers as a Letter to the Editor.

8. I am not saying "Don't send the letter" mind you--I think you should send it.

I'm just letting you know that the deal is well and truly done. There is no hope of changing the course of events.

I hope that bastard is shunned for the rest of his life--but I don't think that will happen, either.

10. And he'll sit on the boards of corporations, collecting a paycheck for doing nothing.

On top of the pension that should have been stripped from him.

The rich get richer...!

7. David Petreaus had a plea deal negotiated with the justice department.

The sentencing judge is not gong to piss on a deal reched through negotiation.

I am sorry that you were screwed by the nations debt industry.
