    It's so sad that we live in a society that is so eager to imprison another human being. Especially one that is non-violent and of no physical threat as this bright young man.

    Sure, it's possible that Schwartz make have broken some laws and that there should be penalties one faces, but 35 years in prison for a non-violent crime? Really?? This is an outrage and an embarassment to the judicial system.
