Criminality and Privilege

It's a well-understood truism that the well-connected can get away with murder.

Sometimes literally.

I've been reading Three Felonies a Day, by Peter Schweitzer, and it's been an eye-opener.

CORRECTION - It's Harvey Silvergate who wrote Three Felonies; it's Schweizer (no T in the name) who wrote Clinton Cash. The books are listed one above the other in my Kindle, and I just screwed the attribution up.

I'm like a lot of people. I generally assume that the world is NOT out to get me. Nor, for that matter, is the government inherently an evil thing.

However, after reading the book, and this post, I have to question the 'Justice System' - particularly that part of it that is involved with prosecution.

Here's more on that biased prosecution.

And, here is a long piece about the media's role in LYING BY OMISSION OR MISLEADING QUOTES.

Peter Schweitzer, who wrote Clinton Cash? Did you mean to say Harvey Silverglate?

Thank you - I cross-linked this - I had both, one above another, in my Kindle List - I'll correct it.
