A comical complaint about laws and harsh guidelines

100px-Get_Fuzzy_LogoI am not a daily reader of the funny pages, and I am not sure I have ever before even seen the daily comic "Get Fuzzy."  But I may need to start following this comic for professional reasons, because a kind reader alerted me to a sentencing-related punchline from today's Get Fuzzy strip. 

The punchline from today's strip, which can be read in full at this link, is as follows: "I'm fine with the laws.  It's the harsh minimum sentencing guidelines I'm having an issue with."  I cannot help but wonder if the creator of Get Fuzzy has spent some time in federal courthouses; this line sound like it came straight from a federal sentencing transcript.
