Murdering Teen Ethan Couch detained in Mexico
In 2013, Ethan Couch killed four people in a drunk driving incident. However, when he went to court his judge let him go free using an affluenza defense. Ethan got away with murder using this white privilege defense, making very clear that money can buy you freedom.
Now fast forward to late November where a video popped up, showing Ethan drinking around a bunch of teenagers. This video proved that Ethan violated his probation. This violation could possibly give Ethan 10 years in prison. When he was ordered to return to court, Ethan and his mother disappeared. For weeks, authorities searched for Ethan and his mother, until they were found in Puerto Vallarta.
As you can see in the picture above, Ethan dyed his hair so he wouldn't be recognized. This proves that this boy hasn't learned anything from that incident, hopefully he will serve jail time. The families who lost their loved ones because of his recklessness deserve that much.
