Bankers go Scot free

This from Simon Black, who rants more than I

Sure, the oddball Madoff or Rajaratnam case occasionally surfaces, but for the most part, not a single member of the banking elite has been charged with a crime.

You know who has been charged with a crime, though? Gary Harrington.

In case you haven't heard of this criminal mastermind, Mr. Harrington was recently sentenced to 30 days in jail and fined $1,500 for a most heinous crime against humanity.

His transgression? NINE misdemeanor convictions of collecting rainwater on his private property. That's right... this vile miscreant had the felonious intent to set up rainwater collection systems on his private property to capture water that falls freely from the sky... an obvious violation of Medford, Oregon's 1925 law which awards ALL water to the government.

So Gary Harrington goes to jail for collecting rainwater. And every single banker who has been complicit in defrauding billions of people around the world walks freely on the streets. Or rather drives freely on the streets in their Maseratis.

And this video blatantly heisted from the beloved Slope site
