I suspects it goes something like:

Generally speaking it's the poor that end up in prison - black people are more likely to be poor than whites or Asians - black people are therefore more likely to be sent to prison.

It's important to include people of Asian descent becasue the general thinking is that the strong extended family unit means that Asians are less likely to offend or end up in jail than blacks who, disproportionately, come from homes with no fathers.

 OK, I will try to pull things back on topic, how about this;

http://www.parentdish.co.uk/2014/05/15/boy-4-hit-zebra-crossing-driver-keeps-driving-licence-essex/?icid=maing-grid7%7Cukt1%7Cdl8%7Csec1_lnk3%26pLid%3D264844

Woman hits 4 year old child... on a zebra crossing.... drags the child 120 feet down the road. Her excuse?

 "I don't know why I didn't see them. I agree I caused the accident, but I didn't see the child. I am extremely sorry and upset that this accident occurred."

The dopey magistrate said this is an, "unpleasant result of a momentary lapse of concentration"

And because she 'needs' a car for her 3.7 mile school run he decided to give her just 6 points and a £250 fine.

I do not want to share the road with people who cannot be bothered to look where they are going.

I do not see how you can jail one person for 18 months and let another off with practically nothing.

Having said that, no one has commented on whether the footballers career  is over!

"The Jamaican international has a number of other convictions, including dishonesty, drinking and driving and other motoring offences, including a prison term for handling a stolen car, while playing for Gillingham in 2002.

It would seem that some clubs are not too fussy;

 

King, whose previous clubs include Sheffield United, Nottingham Forest, Coventry City, Hull City, Leeds United and Middlesbrough, pleaded guilty to a charge of dangerous driving at an earlier hearing at Nottingham Crown Court".

I would love to know how much his insurance premium was on a Porsche?

"Any previous motoring convictions?........" 

"Erm...... I might have..... a few minor ones...... well.... I have not killed anyone.... yet... do I get a discount because I am famous?"

As the OP I'm impressed by the topical tangents. 

As for forgiving a footballer. I have this vision of some fanatical 'pear shaped' football fan being told that the striker who gives meaning to his very existence has murdered his family.

"Ok it was right out of order, but you got to make allowances".

"He has been under a lot of stress recently..... the club is in the relegation zone..."

Or "Can you send him to prison after the playoffs?"

Its definitely along those lines.

"You can't send him to prison, he's needed to play a match in the Champions league!"

I think the point SFF was making was that Ched Evans is white and English, as a counter argument to Yiddarmy's suggestion was that if Marlon King hadn't been black it would have been news.

Lee Hughes (white) managed to lose control of a very well equipped car, had a head on collision near his local pub, killed one person, left the scene of the accident and handed himself in 36 hours later (possibly after the beer level had subsided, it could be suggested). Spent 3 years of a 6 year sentence in a 'soft' prison and then continued his football career, forgiven? I would say yes, bearing in mind he was hired by four separate clubs post prison. 

Forgiven by people who live around this way? no, we think he is a cunt
