I read two separate articles on the same page of The News Tribune Saturday regarding the sentencing of people found guilty of their crimes.
The first was about an office manager who embezzled $1 million from Tacoma Orthopedic Surgeons and received a seven-year prison sentence. The other is about a drunk driver who crossed the center line of the highway, hitting another vehicle head-on and killing a Milton man. The drunk driver received three years and 11 months in prison.
What does it say about our society that we value money more than life? Who experienced the greater loss?
