When Is A Crime Not A Crime?

Answer:  When it is committed by a bank.

Imagine, you commit a crime – a very serious crime – and instead of being prosecuted you are able to negotiate it away for a fee.  You can pay a relative small amount of all you have stolen and the “un” justice system in our country will not charge you nor prosecute you.  In fact, they will give you immunity so that you can never be charged or punished for your crimes.

Imagine you commit murder.  Premeditated murder.  You tell everyone you are going to do it and then video yourself doing it in front of thousands of eye witnesses.  You happen to be very wealthy – say you are a multi millionaire worth maybe $500 million.  The criminal “un” justice system says to you, pay us a fine of let’s say $1 million and we will give you immunity from your crime and no one will ever be able to prosecute you for it.  What would be the result of our justice system?  Total chaos.  The rich would commit crimes and the poor – the rest of the people – would pay for it.

That is what is happening today with our banks.  The Attorneys General of our 50 states are negotiating just such a deal.  In fact, the newly elected AG for Florida has fired the legal team that was investigating the bank fraud.  Yes, I said fired them very unexpectedly.  They had learned too much and knew too much.  The new AG working under a newly elected Governor who himself ran a company that was charged with the biggest Medicare fraud ever in the history of the U.S.

Yes, I said his company was charged with Medicare fraud.  Not he as CEO and founder but it matters not as they just paid a relatively small fine and he was elected Governor.

But I must say, with all due respect to the Governor, he was elected by the people.  OK, people who elected him, tell me why!

This is corruption at its finest.  Un American, Un Constitutional, Un Democratic and Un believable.

So here is the story published by Reuters:

States negotiating immunity for banks over foreclosures  …

(Reuters) – State attorneys general are negotiating to give major banks wide immunity over irregularities in handling foreclosures, even as evidence has emerged that banks are continuing to file questionable documents.

A coalition of all 50 states’ attorneys general has been negotiating settlements with five of the biggest U.S. banks that would include payment of up to $25 billion in penalties and commitments to follow new rules. In exchange, the banks would get immunity from civil lawsuits by the states, as well as similar guarantees by the Justice Department and Department of Housing and Urban Development, which have participated in the talks.
