One realizes that if this were China and these people committed the sames crimes, than they would have most likely have been tried, lined up against a wall, and shot within twenty four hours, four years ago.

And there kidneys and other useful viscera would be currently assisting in the continued existence of wealthy Asian businessmen and their wives.

But this isn’t China of course……..

The people who were all about jailing people after the London riots for taking some water bottles from stores are, of course, now conspicuous in their absence.

This is the best evidence I’ve seen yet for the idea that too big to fail is too big to exist.

It is time for the question to be squarely faced: Do governments rule the world, or do the big banks?

If we want a world where the governments rule, then the power of the big banks must be broken.

Rule Of Law seems to be just a theory these days. All the laws they broke and some desperate dipstick holds up a convince store with nothing more than words gets jail time. Guy gets caught with a bit of weed a few times and he’s a criminal. Boys at the top have it sweet. Deregulation is a nightmare that should be turned around. Truth, justice and…aw fuck it.

Taibbi nails it. From his conclusion:

This is bullshit, and exactly the opposite of the truth, but it’s what our current government believes. From JonBenet to O.J. to Robert Blake, Americans have long understood that the rich get good lawyers and get off, while the poor suck eggs and do time. But this is something different. This is the government admitting to being afraid to prosecute the very powerful – something it never did even in the heydays of Al Capone or Pablo Escobar, something it didn’t do even with Richard Nixon. And when you admit that some people are too important to prosecute, it’s just a few short steps to the obvious corollary – that everybody else is unimportant enough to jail.

An arrestable class and an unarrestable class. We always suspected it, now it’s admitted. So what do we do?
