“Why Isn’t Wall Street in Jail?” Matt Taibbi on Democracy Now!
MATT TAIBBI:We have two-and-a-half million people in jail this country, you know, more than a million who are in jail for nonviolent crimes. And yet, we couldn’t find a single person on Wall Street to do even a day in jail for losing 40 percent of the world’s wealth in a criminal fraud scheme? …this goes beyond the cliché that rich people have better lawyers and they have an advantage.

The SEC and the Justice Department are essentially subsidiaries of Wall Street.
