All of our actions have consequences, some are really not so important, such as one too many beers will lead to a headache in the morning. But some actions, such as knocking out your girlfriend/wife, should have certain reciprocations.
It seems that these days, if you have enough money, and is famous for one reason or another, your actions often have no reciprocations.
It is quite possible that I am confused, but I thought our laws should apply to everyone equally.
(More bluntly, a person who is not a NFL player and not rich, who physically abuses his girlfriend/wife, will he be able to keep his job and also not get any jail time?)
