the permeating corruption in US Justice from an ineffectual SEC to corrupt judges in local state federal and Supreme Court

Matt Taibbi says 'The Poor Are Guilty.. The Rich Are Innocent'. He is the, author of 'The Divide: American Injustice In the Age of the Wealth Gap'.
He has covered Wall Street crimes. Over and over again, virtually no thieves of billions are indicted, let alone go to jail.
The present Attorney General Eric Holder is author of the Holder Memo... the gist of which is a defense of the 'too big to fail' fraud, that judges must consider the 'collateral consequences' of holding corporate criminals guilty.
Money launderers don't go to jail if they are banksters.
JP Morgan Chase was fined 20 billion dollars for recent crimes, but that was a fraction of the profits it made from the crimes.
Bank crooks have sold fraudulent mortgage stocks to state pension funds, harming hundreds of thousands with one swoop.
A welfare recipient who didn't return an accidental extra check can have her children removed. Who ever removes the children of megathieves?
Taibbi speaks of San Diego government operatives going through the underwear drawers of those who apply for welfare in California. A 'preemptive search' is allowed. Welfare applicants can expect warrantless searches while billionaire banksters getting bailouts because of their corrupt practices... in essence federal welfare, do not even open their books to investigators.
Only 4% of all open container violations were handed out to whites, was the gist of research after a judge commented on the racial disparity.
He was a guest on April 15 of On Point Radio of WBUR, M-F 10 to 12 EST. http://onpointradio.org
William Shakespeare in King Lear:
Why dost thou lash that whore? Strip thine own back.
Thou hotly lust’st to use her in that kind
For which thou whipp’st her. The usurer hangs the cozener.*
Through tattered clothes great vices do appear;
Robes and furred gowns hide all. Plate sin with gold,
And the strong lance of justice hurtless breaks.
Arm it in rags, a pigmy’s straw does pierce it.
... Get thee glass eyes,
And like a scurvy politician seem
To see the things thou dost not.
*Cozener: trickster thief
