An officer and a gentleman

An officer of the righteous people's army of mother -or is it father- Russia was last week sentenced to a three year prison term by the equally righteous courts of the people of the said mother land.
The charge against that officer of the noble institution: the bartering of a conscript in exchange for handsome 30 pieces of silver-
$2,500 if you are so inclined. A minor charge which shoud have earned him nothing more than a slap on the wrist but for the unfortunate accident, subsequent to the exchange, which left the said conscript less a leg and suffering brain damage. Not the officer's fault, surely. The resulting sentence shades light on the flaws thta have crept into the righteous courts of the people. A competent court should not have allowed itself to be influenced by the conscript's injuries, however pathetic. 3 years for bartering! What has the world come to?!!!!!!!!
