Every RomCom I have ever seen leads me to believe this should have charmed her into dating him.

Sounds like a silly prank that got out of hand.
 
2013-01-08 08:28:02 PM
Hopefully, four years will be long enough for the prison psychiatrist to cure him of the crazy.
 
2013-01-08 08:31:14 PM
He grabbed ahold of her and it felt just like a burrito and change.

The next scene is a montage of her having a string of asshole SOs while he sits in prison pining for her, then she meets him when he's released. *sniff* lil' dusty
 
2013-01-08 08:34:16 PM
Is that wrong? Should he not have done that?
 
2013-01-08 08:35:33 PM
Maybe now she can get a date with construction guy or the Indian.

Unless he had an extensive criminal record, or he did something really disgusting to her while they were handcuffed, 4 years in prison seems like overkill.

2013-01-08 08:41:44 PM
so how long was he handcuffed to her for? If it was for like 5 minutes or something then he said fine and released her, 4 years is way overkill for it. If he was all crazy and said you are never going to leave me and had the fire dept. cut them off with cops holding him down, then ok.

Still overkill. Would have been a lot less time if he had molested or assaulted her, what's worse.

If this guy has been a pain in the neck before this stunt,maybe he can use the four years. She gets a four year break, a chance to move or marry a Marine.

There are no details so I'm going to assume that he made this a ridiculously traumatic experience for the girl.

Maybe he did something stupid like leave the key at home, insisting that she would have to go with him in order to get free.
 
2013-01-08 08:49:47 PM
Four years? Isn't that draconian?
 
2013-01-08 08:50:03 PM
I'll assume with a sentence that high he also was found in possession of CP. Otherwise, this sentence is most unreasonable.

Without knowing the full story it's hard to say for sure, but it sounds a little extreme for what was most likely a dumb prank that went quickly wrong.

Did he rape her and cut her fingers off or something?

Sure he was wrong to cuff her but that seems like a harsh punishment.

I was thinking the same thing.  I assume there were special circumstances involved that added to his prison time.  Otherwise a few months or just probation would seem more appropriate.  Young people do stupid things.  If no one is harmed, don't fark up his entire future over stupid hormones getting the best of him.

On the other hand, if he was stalky/rapy/creepy over a long time with a history of violence, four years seems about right.

Starts seeing perp in prison and falls in love. Plans escape by hiding nail file in the tacos she brings him - it takes 4 years (his entire sentence) before he files downs the prison bars and escapes (Dude was never that smart).

Both celebrate by adopting tacos as children. Wedding photo has them posing in handcuffs.

Yeah there has to be something more to this story, otherwise I don't see how anyone can get 10 (4 jail, 6 probation) years for being such a dumbass. Hell if some retard handcuffed himself to my wife like this to "get a date" from her, I would probably say he deserves a kick in the nuts and some common sense, but years of jail time? I'd actually feel bad....

Ah yes. The prisons of America are always the best place to put someone who almost qualifies for the regular nut-house.

in jail he will say he is the fire chiefs son, in order to be more popular with the inmates. Til that one day an inmate knows he is talking shiat and boom....

Not that I don't have friends in Ringglod, but Ima gonna guess you've never been there. Parts of it are nice houses with folks doing well....and other parts are...not like that and define the stereotype of inbred Georgia yokels.

Last time I was up that way my gal and I rode our bikes (motorcycles, we're not gay) there and stopped at a few places close to try to find a) cigars and b) beer.

Stop 1 trying to find cigars: Head shop. OK, not our scene and they had no real cigars. "Are we close to Ringgold?" Oh no, you're not close at all. It's a good 15 minutes away.

Stop 2, some tavern/pub: My gal walks in, sees the usual AB drafts and such, cooler with some Guinness bottles and whatnot, and asks "Do you have any Sweetwater?" (that's a Georgia beer ya know). Bartender chick says "Honey do you just want a glass of water with some sugar in it?"

We still laugh about it. I'm not saying they're bad people but WOOoooOooOoOoo it's a different kind of consciousness up in them parts

I agree, this guy needs mental help and a few months in jail (probably in a mental hospital, along with 1 - 2 years on probation). Locking him away for 4 years where his only future is back at his Taco Bell job (felons aren't welcome on the job market beyond menial labor, these days) is not going to help rehabilitate him.

You do realize that you made yourself sound all douchy?

1) 15 minutes driving, in a rural area could mean over an hour's walk... not everyone has vehicles.

2) I never heard of this "Sweetwater" and you putting down the girl over it, isn't all that great.

So you have the typical "motorcycle for him and her", then you have "cigars", and then the obscure beer that everyone should know about.

Odds are that the bikes are Lazy-boys with wheels, which would make it even more douchy.

So you're riding a fine line between the hipster or the overage yuppy crowd...
