And yes, 30 months is a good way to set an example that being an idiot is not a get out of jail free card. And shut up about that idiot that was threatened with 35 years. Have you people never been arrested? Threatening someone one with something to encourage compliance is as old as mankind itself. They've stated on multiple occasions that at most he would have served a few months. They were just scaring the bejeesus out of him which is fair play for someone who broke the law. You want to be a rebel law-breaker? Then prepare to pay the fucking price, period.
