Confusing "justice" in Jacksonville

So two cases in the news here are real puzzlers. First, a female teacher has numerous sexual encounters with her 16yo student...and only gets probation? What are we saying as a society here? If what she did wasnt punishable by jail time then why forbid her from teaching? Would the punishment be different if the teacher/student genders were reversed? Then there is this conviction which makes no sense to me. Was this woman mind controlling the guy? I really dont get how this woman is at fault unless the guy was mentally incompetent or she was forcing him to draw the weapon on the police somehow.

In both cases a judge should have stepped in and set things right. Course judges, being lawyers, are above most forms of accountability..

At a certain stage the realization strikes through that one must either live outside of society's bonds or die of absolute boredom. There is no future or freedom in the circumscribed life and the only other life is complete rejection of the rules. There is no longer room for the soldier of fortune or the gentleman adventurer who can live both within and outside of society. Today it is all or nothing. To save my own sanity I chose the nothing.
