Activist Post: Everyone Now Identifies With Protesters

Activist Post: Everyone Now Identifies With Protesters:
... and in Chicago, protesters were chanting “Shame on you” as some of them were being arrested. The “shame” is for the Wall Street bankers who caused the financial meltdown in 2008. I believe the protesters think the police are jailing the wrong people. To date, none of the financial elite have been indicted, let alone investigated.

In the aftermath of the Savings and Loan scandal in the late '80s and early '90s, 1,000 financial elites were successfully prosecuted. The 2008 meltdown is at least 50 times bigger. I have long thought the reason there are no prosecutions for what is surely massive crime in the mortgage, securities, and banking arena is fear by the government that mass prosecutions would implode the system. “Too Big To Fail” has turned into “Too Big To Jail”!!...
