The Court Decisions and Federal Justice Department Decisions Keep being Handed DOWN, Finding One Scumbag after Another Guilty of throwing away Billions of Other People's $$$, Being Assessed..."Criminal " Fines and Penalties, Yet....NOBODY - EVER Goes to JAIL !!! NOT...the Blackwater BUTCHERS, who murdered those IRAQI Civilians a Few Years ago; NOT...the Banksters on Wall Street who BLEW UP our Economy,....and Plunged Millions of Americans into Unemployment, Foreclosure...and Worse; NOT...The Executives at JPMorganChase, who Threw away OVER $6 Billion in Funds on Bad Bets; NOT....BP Executives, Or Haliburton Executives...who were Responsible for TRASHING the Gulf of Mexico and Ruining the Livelihoods of Thousands of Fishing Families for over a YEAR!; and Finally, THIS Clown...Corzine; who "Borrowed" from Customer Account fund Deposits, Bet BADLY, and LOST - $1.6 BILLION of Customers' $$$....THIS Bastard should Spend the REST of his Life in PRISON !!!
BUT....He WON'T. And that Brings me BACK...to My Question, America: Don't You....SEE that Something is HORRIBLY Wrong in this Country, when Ordinary Citizens are Going to Jail (or Winding Up DEAD), for Collecting Rainwater, TALKING too Long at City Council Meetings, Growing a GARDEN (Heaven FORBID !), and Possession of Small Quantities of Recreational Substances,....YET, These GREEDY Criminals....JUST...KEEP Being ALLOWED to Hold onto all their ILL-Gotten Fortunes, Living the HIGH Life, and NEVER Have to Suffer ANY Consequences - for their Criminal Behavior, which UNLIKE...Growing Gardens, Collecting Rainwater, Smoking Pot, and TALKING in City Council Meetings; Does NOT....Cause Grievous HARM...to THOUSANDS of Human Beings, Like the Outrageous CRIMES of the Bankster Class...DO ???!!!
I Would Remind Everyone...In addition to Costing Gulf Coast Residents...BILLIONS in Lost Income, Only...SOME of which has Been Paid BACK, 11 Human Beings...DIED as a Result of this Criminal Negligence. And as Far as the Corzine Matter with MF Global, SEVERAL People who Lost Their Savings Completely as a RESULT of this Crook's Greedy Ways,...Committed Suicide, Leaving Broken Families in the Wake ! When...Johnny Pot Smoker...Takes a Toke, He's NOT Destroying Someone ELSE'S - LIFE !!!
WHAT....Does it SAY about our SET of VALUES, in the Society, when we SAY...we Value Human Life, but then...Do NOTHING to the VERY People who DESTROY the Lives of THOUSANDS of OTHERS, as a Result of Criminality ??? But...EVERY Damn Day, Hundreds (Thousands) of People will Go to Jail.....FOR NOTHING ???????
We....Desperately need to - RE-THINK Our Priorities in this Country !!!
White Collar CRIME....Does GREAT, Great Damage...to HUMAN BEINGS !!! The Enron Disaster, the Savings and Loan Scandal of 1988-1990, the Wall Street Meltdown of 2008, and The Greedy Destruction of $1.6 Billion in Customer Accounts, AND the MF Global Company...ALL Hurt - PEOPLE, ...BADLY !! WHY...Do we NOT....Equate...Greedy Banksters who Cause the Financial RUIN of thousands and Thousands of Human Beings, With....OTHER Criminals - Like Bank Robbers, Murderers, Rapists, and Child Abusers ????
WHY....Do we Put - White Collar CRIMINALS....On some kind of Pedestal, that Says "YES, they WILL be FINED, but...NO jail Time" ???
I'll BET....The Ordinary CITIZENS, who are about to receive prison sentences for Petty Crap......wish THEY Could Get THAT DEAL !!! But, For SOME Reason, in America....we WORSHIP - WEALTH, and the WEALTHY; we Afford them a Status...ABOVE all the REST of Humanity.
THIS....HAS to END !!!
