Taibbi: Canít let Wall Street off the hook and jail someone for Ďa joint in his pocketí

The problem with letting the economic foxes run the henhouse, Taibbi told Moyers, is that it led to an overall degradation of the rule of law.

ďIf youíre going to put somebody in jail for having a joint in his pocket, you canít let higher ranking HSBC officials off for laundering $800 million for the worst drug dealers in the entire world ó people who are suspected, not only of dealing drugs, but of thousands of murders,Ē Taibbi said. ďThis is an incredible dichotomy, and eventually it eats away at the very fabric of society when some people go to jail and some people go to jail.Ē
