Well, this has nothing to do with vegetarianism. It’s about politic in my country.
On January 1, 2013, Rasyid Rajasa, the youngest son of Coordinating Minister for the Economy Hatta Rajasa drived a car in a highway and hit a car from behind. Two people died in the accident, i.e. Harun (57) and M. Raihan (1.5).
And now Rasid Rajasa can go home freely. The police in my country do not arrest him just because he is a son of minister in my country.
I am just curious if law in your country like this? What do you think about this case? Share your opinion please!
Things like that aren't supposed to happen in the U.S. either but they do. Sometimes the media will find out and the public will be outraged but celebrities typically get a pass. About 15 years ago Halle Berry caused a hit and run. They thought she was drunk but by the time they got around to interviewing her, sometime later it was a moot point. Tax evader, Timothy Geitner was voted in to office as the Treasury Secretary by the US senate finance committee after failing to pay close to 45K!! in back taxes from the early 2000s. Yes, he was made to pay back the owed taxes (which spanned over 4 years) but it’s hard to imagine in all the U.S., there isn't a more deserving, honest, less hypocritical person to give such an important job too. It doesn't help matters that present day media has no back bone and gives people they deem worthy a pass. There is zero coverage on people or issues that don't fit in to their personal agendas. Yes, it’s sad really.
I think that's crazy! In France all the presidents are mostly corrupt, for Sarkozy everybody said he was president because when you are president you cannot be arrested. The same for Berlusconi in Italy, he is a criminal but you cannot arrest a president there. In the UK I feel it is less corrupt but maybe it's just better hidden :/
