Crime really pays

A hedge fund manager riped off his costumers to the tune of $450 million dollars. The courts fined him $300 million dollars and sentenced him to a few years in jail. He faked his death and is on the run with $150 million dollars.

Exxon big spill and the law suits by the people of Alaska has been dismissed in the Supreme Court saying the price was too high. So after fighting this case the people and lands of Alaska are the losers. Big Business wins again and gets away with the biggest oil spill in the history of the world and doesn't have to pay for the harm it caused. It also helps when you have radical republican judges who are in favor in the destruction of the planet and all life on it, at any cost. Profit is the motive and I wonder how much the judges were paid by Exxon to make this judgment.
