I've seen it as well, in a 99% white county in eastern Kentucky. Literally the richest kid in the county went to jail for robbing a liquor store - his parents could and would have bought him the whole store if he wanted it (this kid got an out of state license at 15 so he could drive his new Dodge Viper 15th birthday present to school). He was a white-gangsta wannabe and needed the street cred.
His grandfather was so angry that he spent his own money to have a new prosecutor (with no criminal law experience) elected in the next election, to get revenge on the one who prosecuted his grandson.
