Apparently one of the recipients of a home from "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" has served some time for some crimes he's done in the past. Oh, and he also only has one arm because he had to cut the other one off himself after his arm got caught in a winch and was gradually being pulled into it.

Even though this guy has served time and paid his debt to society, people say that he shouldn't be chosen to receive a reward like this. I was really surprised to find out that a large majority of CNN voters also have a problem with him being on the show -- this is one of the few times when the CNN vote goes the way of the morons.

I think this is related to my previous post about the Pennsylvania county that is trying to take a newborn baby away from parents because the father was convicted of a sex crime in 1983 and the mother has drugs in her history.

People have a messed up view of justice and fairness.
