A link I saw on Fark today:,10117,21372988-421,00.html?from=public_rss

I really don't know how to react to this. But I thought it was important to share with all of you.

Sounds like it's just an issue of law regarding whether damages awarded to convicts can be seized under that victim compensation law. I suspect that it happened because the comp law only deals with any income that the convict makes by "commercialising" the crime in a book, movie deal, etc.

But if it's on Fark then I'm sure that people will try to make a "justice" issue out of it.
