Sentences don’t reflect value of human life

Two years for gun thief, while woman who killed motorcyclist with car gets a day

Re: Two years in prison for Saanich man who stole 148 guns (News online)

After reading this article I have an answer to my question of what a human life is worth.

Lucky Jhagra was found guilty of stealing $270,000 worth of guns. For that he gets sentenced to two years in prison.

Tracy Smith, after she mowed down Mahenthiran Janarthan on his motorcycle, killing him with her car, gets sentenced to one day in jail. Doing the math using these figures, a human life is worth just under $370. Wow.
