DECREASING PUNISHMENT FOR CERTAIN CRIMES RAISES QUESTIONS
September 1, 2020
Billionaires have been doing EXTREMELY well during the pandemic. While $6.5 trillion in household wealth disappeared, billionaires made over $584 billion since the pandemic hit! On top of that, there’s another disturbing way the ultra-wealthy have been benefiting.
Punishing vulnerable people seems to be a higher priority for the U.S. than stopping major crimes.
The legal system is designed to benefit some and throw away others. Black people bear the brunt of this. Policing, prisons, and punishment were meant for us by design. Seeing white-collar crime go unpunished is just evidence this system is not for us AT ALL.
