Money can you shorter penalties even on big charges.


Let me justify this statement. Often we hear about some politician/Bollywood star’s kid getting away easily after committing a crime. A crime could be as heinous as murder or offending someone’s modesty. But nobody questions them easily. Even if they do, the rich are laid-off as “privileged hain…Jaane do”

Why?
What is the famous stigma that we carry in our minds about the rich?

 Here are a few of them:

• The rich have greater accessibility and reach to the law. They have connections, they know sources. That’s why they do get off the hook easily.

• They pay huge compensation and liability fees whenever they commit a crime. No one knows what happens behind the bars with the rich and they are bailed out in the blink of an eye.

• They not only have connections with impactful sources but also with the police. They might be sent to custody but are given bail sooner than enough.

• Even if they are held guilty in court, they have a huge amount of money to deposit to the lawyers for setting them free.


It’s not like the rich get off easily every time, but mostly they do. And when it happens, it hampers the justice and social fabric of society.
