RIGHT- COLLAR CRIME

“NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW”


YEAH. RIGHT!

WE HAVE TWO TYPES OF CRIMES IN AMERICA. WHITE COLLAR AND THE REST.

ALTHOUGH JUSTICE DEMANDS THAT THOSE WHO COMMIT A CRIME MUST DO THE TIME, THE CRIMINALS WHO FELONIZE WITH A PEN NEVER
SEEM TO DO A LONG OR HARD SPELL IN THE STOCKADE.

OUR MOST RECENT WHITE –COLLAR CRIMINAL, WHO
BILKED OTHERS OUT OF $50,000,000,000 ( ACCORDING TO HIS OWN GUESSTIMATE) HAD TO DELIVER A $10 MILLION BOND BEFORE HE WAS FREED TO DO THE PERP-WALK TO HIS $7 MILLION PARK AVENUE “PRISON,” WHERE HE’S BEING HELD UNDER PENT- HOUSE ARREST.

THAT $10 MILLION IS THE MATHEMATICAL EQUIVALENT OF A THUG BEING ORDERED TO PUT UP A $20 BOND AFTER ROBBING A WAREHOUSE OF $100,000 WORTH OF MERCHANDISE.

WHY IS IT THAT THE WHITER THE CRIME THE SOFTER THE TIME?
COULD IT BE THAT THE VERY PEOPLE WHO WRITE OUR LAWS, AS WELL AS THE LAWYERS AND JUDGES WHO ROUND-OUT OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM ARE ALL MEN OF SAME CLOTH?

not to defend this bastard...but he is awaiting trial and sentencing. The system usually errs on the side of granting freedom to those accused but not convicted, unless there is a risk of flight or threat to the community. Of course there are those who legitimately point out that there are many petty drug offenders who are on Rikers Island prior to trial and sentencing, so why not Bernie? Seems to me that the injustice in that senario is not that Bernie is out but that they are in.

THEY NEVER SEEM TO PUT IN YEARS.
IT'S USUALLY MONTHS.
THE BLOOD THEY CAUSE TO SPILL DOESN'T SPLATTER ON THEM.
THE PAIN THEY CAUSE IS USUALLY HIDDEN FROM VIEW.

Think it's kind of like the cop that knows you're drunk, has a drinking problem of his own...sooo, he lets you go drive home figuring you'll make it ok, it's not too far, and you did say you'd be careful. But, then, that stoner kid, with the bloodshot, bedroom eyes, and nonchalant smirk? Gonna nail his sorry ass for thinkin' he be above the law.

DEAREST RTHGRL

YES, JUSTICE SHOULD NOT BE A FRATERNITY.
"IF YOU'RE ONE OF THE BOYS, WE CAN TAKE CARE OF YA'."
THE BANKERS AND WALLSTREETERS- WHO ENGAGED IN EXERCISES WHICH DESTROYED PEOPLES LIVES- WILL SERVE LITTLE TIME IN THE CLINK.
ACTUALLY, WE MAY FIND THAT THEY BROKE FEW LAWS BECAUSE THE LAWS WERE WRITTEN BY THEIR KINFOLK IN WASHINGTON.

If I stand on top of the Bill of Rights, am I technically "above the law?"

Also, who is this "Justice" guy, and why is he/she allowed to demand anything?

HEY PETITE

"ABOVE THE LAW" IS JUST A PREPOSITIONAL PHASE YOU'RE GOING THROUGH.
