We really need to re-evaluate Punishments for White Collar Crimes. White Collar Crimes are deemed Non-Violent so they are not as severe in the Punishment & they get treated more like they are in a Country Club than in Prison.

Lets examine this Non-Violent claim by following the Negative Ripples Generated. The Financial Crisis. It seems like most people have lost their Retirement & in 2017 Social Security will be out of money. Out of desperation some people resorted to Crime. Some people became Violent Criminals. Some people killed themselves. Some people killed their Families & then themselves. Should they be held accountable for these actions, yes! Could they foresee these as possibilities, only if they were to look at History besides, "Ignorance is no excuse for the Law".

Take Myanmar or the Niger Delta both of these Regions are without Freedoms or Human Rights because there was profit to be made. Its cheaper to pay off a couple of people in the Administration or one or both Warring Sides. Both Regions tried Peaceful Protests only resulting in Mass Murder. Both Mass Murders were PROVEN to be encouraged by Big Business.

These Non-Violent White Collar Crimes have Negative Ripples that cause Ecological Devastation, Oppression, Wars, Negative Ripples for Generations to come. Some of these Negative Ripples may never be recovered, like the loss of a Species of Plant or Animal perhaps even Clean Water or a Forest or a Mountain will be things of the past. We need these Diverse Gene Pools to fight diseases present & future.

"We The People" most certainly should not be fighting for whether or not these People are Prosecuted but here we are...https://www.change.org/petitions/ri-attorney-generals-office-refuse-to-give-blanket-immunity-to-bankers-on-wall-street

      White collar crimes are a form of financial terrorism. What thugs do with guns, bombs and knives financial crooks do with accounting. For over 50 years after Glass Steagall and New Deal era financial regulations our economy was safe for taxpayers and consumers. Then in the 1980s financial deregulation starts and we have the Savings & Loan Crisis, we have the dot com bubble in the 1990s and its collapse circa 2000 resulting in 2001 recession plus financial frauds of Enron, WorldCom that committed accounting scandals followed by ponzi schemes of Bernie Madoff etc and also had the real estate bubble which burst in 2007 and resulted in the worst financial crisis since The Great Depression of the 1930s. During the real estate bubble there was predatory lending and reckless excessively risky financial speculation. White collar crimes are a form of financial terrorism. What murderers, robber barons, thugs, gangsters and murderers do with guns, knives etc financial crooks do with accounting.
