Merlene Davis: There's no justice for Texas teen with 'affluenza'

I was surprised, but not shocked, about last week's news that a 16-year-old boy in Texas, the son of affluent parents, was given 10 years' probation for killing four people while driving drunk. The surprise for me was that the boy's defense team using the term "affluenza" to mitigate his punishment.
