Papantonio: It’s Time To Prosecute Wall Street Criminals
If a person in the US were to walk into a bank and demand the teller hand over all the cash in the place, he’d be in handcuffs before he could even make it to the door. But when the bank owner does the same thing, we help them out by giving them billions of dollars in bailout money. That scenario is what happened when bankers on Wall Street crashed our economy, and billions by pushing us into economic collapse. And no one has gone to jail. Mike Papantonio talks about why we’re so afraid to put bankers in handcuffs, and what we can do to help push the government towards taking action, with Dan Petegorsky, the campaign coordinator for the Campaign for a Fair Settlement.
