Jon Corzine Is the Original George Zimmerman - by Matt Taibbi

Jon Corzine Is the Original George Zimmerman
POSTED: April 24, 8:37 AM ET

......................


Somebody from MF Global has to be arrested soon. The message otherwise to middle America is so galling that it boggles the mind.

It would be one thing if this was a country with a general, across-the-board tendency toward leniency for property crime. But we send tens of thousands of people to do real jail time in this country for non-violent offenses like theft. We routinely separate mothers from their children for relatively petty crimes like welfare fraud. For almost anyone who isnít Jon Corzine, itís no joke to get caught stealing in America.

But these people stole over a billion dollars, right out in the open, and nobody is doing anything about it. Instead, we get a lot of chin-scratching legislative hearings, and an almost academic-style public discussion about whether or not a crime even took place. If there arenít arrests in this case soon, ordinary people will correctly deduce that it simply isnít a crime to steal in America, if the thefts are executed with a computer by white people in suits.

Just as it was incredible when Florida authorities dragged their feet in the Zimmerman case, itís incredible that people in Washington donít see the implications of this continual non-decision on MF Global. Apparently they hope no one notices. The sad thing is, they might be right.

2. Taibbi is right

Never excuse fraud, no matter which party the criminal may have been in.

3. Hilarious. Taibbi cannot define "fraud" - he is bereft of legal knowledge

 

MFG is involved in rehypothecation and failed repeated audits before Corzine joined. Taibbia is a hooded executor - a fucking laughing stock among legal scholars.

I really wish that bag of shit would quit teasing know-nothings on legal and financial matters.
