Too Big to Fail = Too Big to Jail

Jail the little people with impunity, irrespective of whether you have cause, proof, or trivial formalities like a "public trial." Cover up the crimes of the big people, no matter how large the crime or how long the trail of victims left in its wake.

How many bankers have gone to jail following the conspiracy among the world's largest banks to fraudulently manipulate the $500+ trillion Libor interest rate? Zero. How many bankers might go to jail, once our corrupt regimes have finished with their token slap-on-the-wrist? Zero.

How many of the little people were sent to jail in the U.S. last year for possession of marijuana?

It is as outrageous as it is ironic that the same regime that claims to be so "tough on crime" that it literally starts "wars" on it is, in fact, an accomplice of the worst crime syndicate to ever exist on this planet.

Its excuse as to why it refuses to touch the Wall Street criminals is the biggest farce of all: It would be too damaging to the U.S. economy to prosecute the Wall Street criminals. Seriously?

There is absolutely no "issue" here. The Wall Street criminals must be prosecuted immediately, and must be punished to the absolute full extent of the law. Indeed, committing the biggest crimes in history may require enlarging sentencing guidelines so that the proverbial "punishment fits the crime."

The only related issue still to be decided is this: When the Wall Street oligarchs are eventually imprisoned for their crimes, should the corrupt politicians and pseudo-regulators who first facilitated and then covered up this crime wave be given adjoining cells?

"Too Big To Fail" is simply the government caving in to blackmail from the world's largest crime syndicate. However, "Too Big To Jail" is nothing less than a conscious decision to serve and protect those same criminals.
