(New York Daily News)   In the US, white collar criminals who get caught scamming billions from innocents spend a few years in elegant Federal prisons that are like country clubs. In Iran, those types of criminals get executed   ( nydailynews.com) divider line

Need_MindBleach: Quick question: Why are the super-rich allowed to go to different prisons than the rest of the non-violent population in the Federal prison system?

The poor and middle class have terrible lobbyists.

hardinparamedic: So submitter wants to repeal the bill of rights and be more like a religious theocracy which murders it's own citizens?


Is there a convenient way to approve of this comment? 4 letters or fewer?

If Federal prison were so enjoyable I would not have fought like hell to avoid it.

Abox: I bet many of those cheering the death of white collar criminals would jump at the chance to screw people over for a big payoff.

Psychological projection much?

JC22: AndreMA: zimbomba63: So capital punishment is now OK?  We can clean house of all the murderers?  Good, that will free up a lot of space.  I think rapists so go, too.

Nope. Capital punishment, as in Iran, is more than the slap on the wrist that many white-collar criminals receive in the US. The argument is not that we should execute more people, but that the punishment of certain groups of criminals is not severe enough.

I think we do need to execute OR make life in prison charges for these guys. The deterrents are just not there anymore and these people think "hmm...live the life for a few years or more and pay a minor penalty or some minor jail time....sign me up".

Risk/Reward is just not there.

OK, just as long we clear out all the scum, and that means the murderers and rapist, too.  Why would you want to do just the white collar criminals?

The odd thing is that the Left always says that the death penalty does not deter criminals, so we should end it. But, if they going to use it against a group they don't like, all of a sudden, shazam, it acceptable,  Very odd, indeed.

I mean, if a decent subset of the population wants a hyper-religious pseudo-moral theocratic state, we might as well get to kill a couple of bankers out of the deal.

There are no Federal prisons that are like country clubs. None. That myth is perpetuated by derps who otherwise spend their time cheering on people like Joe Arpaio.

And China also.  Everybody forgets about China.  It used to be Poland but nowadays, it's China.
