The Driving Force of Distrust & Anger: Two Sets of Rules

Two sets of rules, one for ordinary people, and another for the elites that believe the world should do as they say rather than they do. For example, the deletion of files and destruction of evidence after subpoenaed cannot be obstruction of justice for the majority and shrewd politics for the select few. This imbalance, a driving force of distrust and anger across the globe, will become a key 'wedge' issue in the US when the economy turns and confidence falters behind the unattainable illusion of the American dream.

If you don’t remember these kinds of creative prosecution strategies during the financial crisis, that’s probably because no prosecutor ever used them. Teachers ordered to falsify tests and the superiors who demanded it, amid desperation to save schools from destruction, deserve no mercy from the court. Bankers who ran a criminal enterprise to engage in the largest consumer and investing fraud in world history deserve our thanks.

Headline: The Biggest Outrage in Atlanta’s Crazy Teacher Cheating Case

One of the defining issues of this millennium has been the bifurcation of the criminal justice system, with one set of rules for ordinary people and another for elites. We’ve learned that justice is a commodity to be purchased rather than a universal value delivered without prejudice.

That’s the proper backdrop to the news of convictions in the Atlanta test cheating case. Eleven educators were found guilty of racketeering charges — something typically reserved for organized crime — for feeding students answers to standardized tests, or changing test sheets after they were turned in.
