Lawyers invent bizarre new excuse… and it keeps a 16-year-old who killed 4 people out of prison

It looks like ‘affluenza’ is the new ‘temporary insanity’. Yesterday, Glenn shared the stunning verdict out of a Dallas court that has allowed a teenager who killed four people and critically injured others in a drunken car accident to walk away with a mere 10-year probation sentence.

Ethan Couch, a 16-year-old from a wealthy family, faced up to 20 years in prison for the deadly accident he caused. Instead, he received 10-years probation after defense attorneys argued the teen’s parents never taught him the difference between right and wrong. The defense attorneys enlisted the expertise of psychologist Dick Miller to testify that the teen had essentially raised himself and he had an emotional age of 12.

Yesterday, Dr. Miller appeared on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 where he was grilled about why he believes Couch should not be held responsible for his actions. In the heated exchange, Dr. Miller continuously refused to admit Couch actually killed anyone.

“So anyway, Dr. Miller is here. Now, I am only slightly less annoyed at him than I am the judge. [Couch] was taking Valium and drinking. He had people in his car, and he killed four people on the highway. Killed them… Just mows them down,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “What does he get? Well, the judge listens to Dr. Dick Miller, and Dr. Miller is saying, ‘Well, he's suffering from ‘affluenza.’ He had too much and so he didn't really know.’ And so they give the kid probation. Now Anderson Cooper had Dr. Miller on and here's what he said.”

Yes, you heard him correctly, not only should this young adult not be held responsible for his actions, there is room for debate as to whether or not he actually “killed” four people.

“This is when you need duct tape… It's not going to stop your head from exploding, but at least you'll have all the pieces when you go into the hospital,” Glenn joked. “Then when you get to the hospital they'll say, ‘We got another head injury!’ And they will just look at you and they will say, ‘Oh, were you listening to the doctor who got a little fancy and bought his kids a car?’ And you'll say, ‘Yes, I was. My head exploded. Glenn warned me.’”

While the doctor certainly bears responsibility for coming up with the inane excuse, let us not forget the judge’s culpability in the case.

“I think this judge should be impeached. I think this judge who actually listened to this knothead should be impeached. This judge actually sat there and listened to ‘Mr. Fancy Pants’ tell me about affluenza, and the guy can't even admit that he killed four people? And it's because of what his parents did to him,” Glenn said exasperatedly. “No, it's not. If you're not a judge that has that much common sense, you should be impeached, and the people in Texas should impeach [her].”

The judge in question is Tarrant County Judge Jean Boyd, who had already announced she would be leaving the bench in 2014 when he term is up. But Glenn does not believe that is soon enough.

“She should be impeached. She should not leave with her dignity or her record being spotless. This is insanity… I moved to this state because I was looking for some sanity. I can get this in about 37 other states,” Glenn concluded. “He was drunk. His actions speak louder than words. He should go to jail. Somebody needs to teach this kid a lesson. If it's his parents that didn't teach him a lesson, good, then the State shall – at least in my world.”

The Federal Reserve has a huge role in the Great Reset, as Glenn Beck and the Heartland Institute’s Justin Haskins explained on the radio program. The Fed will force nearly all banks to comply with specific policy agendas — like ESG scores, green initiatives, or any other goal within the Great Reset — and it's already begun.

Eventually, if you are not "green" enough, you may not be able to open a bank account with some of the word’s largest financial institutions. This is just one example of how the Great Reset will affect the everyday American and how it’s going to change our society fundamentally.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."
