In Minnesota, possession of 42.5 grams of marijuana constitutes a felony. HOWEVER Physically abusing, sexually abusing and torturing the elderly, and failing to report all if the above are misdemeanors. What's with the fancy ass wording? Abuse of a vulnerable adult by a caregiver? They fucking TORTURED these people, why give it a fancy, non-threatening name Abuse of a vulnerable adult with sexual contact? Nope, how 'bout SEXUAL ABUSE? The story: Misdemeanors? Wait, lemme try that again. MISDEMEANORS?!?! That's a complete insult to the victims of these crimes and their families. No wonder people love committing crimes so much nowadays, it barely pays. I know people who went to jail or PRISON for victimless crimes, but sexually abusing the elderly...nahhh....that's just a misdemeanor. I would say that I hope the girls are punished to the full extent of the law but if they have no priors the chances are they might just get probation, at most I imagine them getting reduced sentences. I wish we had a bang-my-head-against-the-wall smiley.
