What the ... justice 2?!?!?

I just finished reading an article on Korea Beat. It was an update on a previous story about a bus driver in trouble with the law. His crime, he stopped someone from molesting a student and attacking an older woman on the bus. Oh, and evidently not paying blood money to the boys family.

He was actually sentenced to prison time in the original case. It was a good example of why you don't get involved in anything in Korea.

On appeal the prison time was tossed but the judge still sentenced him to 6 months of prison time and 2 years of probation. The judges reasoning

The trial judge sentenced him to six months in prison and two years of probation, saying that “although there are mitigating circumstances the victim was badly injured and no settlement has been reached with his family.”

Yes, the judge actually said part of the reason for the punishment is that the blood money wasn't paid. What doesn't pay in South Korea is to help others when they are being attacked or raped. Mitigating cirumstances ... the "victim" was sexually assaulting a girl and then attacked a woman who stopped him. Mitigating circumstances ... what the kimchi?!?!?

Blood money and the way the courts and cops try to actually enforce it make South Korea look like a country of fucktards who care more about money than what is right.
