Is this justice?

Reading The Daily Item, I noticed two articles that make me wonder what is wrong with our justice system in this state?

In one, a man got sentenced to 20 years in prison for firing a weapon into the air. This happened in Philadelphia. No one was hurt or killed, thankfully, but the man had a criminal record, which resulted in the sentence.

The next is a former state trooper is sentenced to 6-to-23 months for a drunken driving crash near Philadelphia that killed a young man. Does anyone else think this is completely absurd?  

I hope that our senators and congressman read The Daily Item and see the articles I am referring to, and this letter, perhaps it may make someone wonder if  this justice?
