Wait I'm confused. How in the world, is causing a flood, worth a life sentence? I have lost so much faith in the justice system if that's true.

Do you realize what kind of damage that does, he probably destroyed crops, wrecked and damage homes, caused evacuations, probably got people injured or killed.

The great flood of 93' is what they called it in Missouri. St. Louis flooded pretty bad, and where I was from (sikeston) it was bad as well.

well.. you ****** up quite a bit there ted, how about we punish you with a life in prison for a minor fellony.
and no, we will not put you into any rehabilitation program and will blatantly not give a **** about you or your entire family.
while were at it, lets throw some real criminals in there with you, you know, serial killers, rapists, gang bangers and all the good stuff.

The legal system in the states is ****** more than sash grey will ever acomplish.

An Illinois man, James Scott, 23 at the time, was officially convicted for "intentionally causing a catastrophe" and sentenced to life imprisonment for his role in causing some of the flooding across the river from Quincy, Illinois. In an attempt to strand his wife on the other side of the river so he could continue partying, Scott removed several sandbags from a levee holding back the water. The breach flooded 14,000 acres (57 kmĀ²) of farmland, destroyed buildings, and closed a bridge.[6][7] While Scott caused one levee to fail, more than 1,000 other levees also failed in the flooding.

Life in prison seems kinda hard for such a petty thing

Also he set his elementary school on fire and set a bunch of other fires before this. And he's serving 20 to life, not life...
