(Bloomberg)   Trump gets some new bragging rights as the law and order president now presides over an all-time low in white collar crime. Oh, wait, that's all-time low in white collar crime enforcement. Nevermind   (bloomberg.com) divider line

Seeing as how all the offices are closed, it doesn't seem right to steal from yourself at home.  Stats probably don't include what the trump family is grifting either.

They don't call it "white collar crime" for nothing. So what'd you expect, subby?

Just like how not doing any Coronavirus tests will guarantee no Coronavirus cases, if you don't investigate any white collar crimes there will be no white collar crimes

It's because Trump Made America Great Again, Subby, and in this greatness people don't need to commit crimes.  Have you noticed that it's the Greatest Economy Ever, huh?

Do you people really pay for all these sites? 

Why keep producing links to sites 99% of the farkers can't see?

Hopefully, the Biden administration makes white collar crime a priority.

If Trump made white collar crime a priority he'd end up investigating himself.

Catlenfell: Hopefully, the Biden administration makes white collar crime a priority.


He wrote a law calling for the death penalty for 51 urban crimes. White collar isn't on his radar.
You are talking about a man that described poor people going into bankruptcy as abuse against those poor predatory lenders.

It's still a brag. White-collar criminals are among his chief supporters.

It's not even crime.

They changed the laws so it's not even illegal anymore. And just to make sure the finance industry has regulatory captured both the SEC and the FBI Financial Crimes division so that such offenses would never get prosecuted even if they did get caught.

We are living in a Golden Age of white collar crime. Welcome to the Plutocracy.

"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it." ~ Frederic Bastiat

One way to fix this in 5-10 hears, is to send a petition to to your local liberal arts college.

Ask them to teach about corporate crime and white collar crime, in their Criminology, Sociology, and History departments.

When there is a wave of grads who have taken those courses in the second half of the 2020s, we will see businesses and governments change because their new hires will have a whole new set of questions and perspectives.

It will also be really important to question "Taxation without representation!" as a central tenet or revolutionaries. Oh, you want to control your taxes? And your new Constitution is putting control of taxes into local landowner, and slave-owner, control? What terrible consequences could that have in 200 years? Hello, entire country based on white collar tax evasion as the central pillar of political power.

Damn it feels good to be a gangster.

Even when it comes to adultery, Trump is guilty of white collar crime!

It's like with testing. The more you enforce the law, the more crime you get!

Guys, guys, this is just like coronavirus testing!

If you don't test/prosecute, it means there isn't anything there!

Winning the Trump way!

My 5 part plan for Ha Ha Suckers!

Step 1: Defund the police.
Step 2: enable police to seize assets in only white collar crime cases, you know, to prevent the innocent money from being used to commit more crimes.
Step 3: White collar crime is cracked down upon.
Step 4: Join the police.
Step 5: move off world using the local police space programs funded by asset forfeiture.
