Post " IS THERE REALLY SUCH A THING AS WHITE COLLAR CRIME "

This seems to be the one area that the "JUSTICE" department for decades has had a problem with. Not only idenifying it when it occurs, but then dealing with it once it has. I feel that real " JUSTICE " is only a matter of how much can you as an individual afford. Somewhat a RARE commodity of late.......for the average citizen.

Wealth buys influence, always has. This is a democracy, numbers are on the side of the majority, which is anything but wealthy. So... Get the majority to stop falling for the age old trickery of mass manipulation. Education is a start, stability is a must, and faith never hurts.

Yep, you go and steal billions of dollars from someone, you are going to be in jail until the second coming of Christ. If you are a highly influential white collar "investment" broker, they give you five years in a country club, four and a half suspended on good behavior and you get to keep the money in your offshore accounts, as long as you are still planning on the 7 figure "campaign contributions" you promised!

Whom would we educate, the average Joe, versus law enforsement? Stability of what, our government the economy what exactly requires this stabilization? Finally Faith, in what, or who and why? Perhaps you envoke the Almighty, that sort of faith?

Martha Stewart would most likely believe there is, and with a lovely peach sweater. .
Leona Helmsley would agree with Martha, as long as they had separate reservations.
Kevin Mitnick would agree if he hadn't erased his criminal record.
Ken Lay would have agreed but he chickened out by "dying".

Education of the population is the most important thing that can be done to improve this country. If folks are smarter they are not as likely to fall for schemes. If they are smarter they are more likely to demand that their government do its job and enforce all the laws equally.

True, with a smarter population there will be smarter people who will figure out how to manipulate the system but as posted above the MAJORITY are good people and that majority of educated people will start ratcheting down corruption.
