Yes, the rich are getting screwed and the poor get preferential treatment.

A homeless man robbed a Louisiana bank and took a $100 bill. After feeling remorseful, he surrendered to police the next day. The judge sentenced him to 15 years in prison.

The next day he surrendered to the police voluntarily and told them that his mother didn’t raise him that way.

The ex-CEO of what had been one of the largest privately-held mortgage lenders was sentenced jail time Tuesday for a $3 billion fraud that goes down as one of the biggest corporate frauds in U.S. history.

Not true.. Robbing a bank is a felony, and subject to minimum jail sentences.. This reminds me of the thread posted the other day, $1 robbed from a bank to get healthcare.. Hope the man enjoys his 15 years in jail...

Brown told the police he needed the money to stay at the detox center and had no other place to stay and was hungry. [LEFT]


Well looks like he'll get the detox he was looking for, a place to live and stay fed for the next 15 years. What exactly is the problem?
