justice....under the law

"You can do real time in jail in America for all kinds of ridiculous offenses, for taking up two subway seats in New York City, if you fall asleep in the subway. People go to jail for that all the time in this country, for having a marijuana stem in your pocket. There are 50,000 marijuana possession cases in New York City alone every year. And here we have a bank that laundered $800 million of drug money, and they can’t find a way to put anybody in jail for that. That sends an incredible message not just to the financial sector but to everybody. It’s an obvious, clear double standard, where one set of people gets to break the rules as much as they want and another set of people can’t break any rules at all without going to jail. And I just don’t see how they don’t see this problem."-Matt Taibbi on the double standards in our criminal justice system, as is so exceptionally apparent from the way the government handled HSBC's Mexican drug cartel money laundering scam. http://www.democracynow.org/2012/12/13/matt_taibbi_after_laundering_800_million
