Every society is riddled with examples of unequal enforcement of laws. That this deeply sucks is well known. It is not however an argument against the reasonability of laws as written.
It may be wrong that a popular fighter gets away with something he should not have done, but that is no reason to go easy on an unpopular fighter who does something he ought not to have done. Two wrongs do not make a right.
No one is making the argument he shouldn't have been punished, were just pointing out how hypocritical Dana White is. He went overboard in cutting Jason High, a fine and possible suspension would have been the right move but Sonnen just failed a drug test so this was the perfect opportunity to go overboard and get people talking about something else.
