Hey, if we do one thing wrong we may as well do everything wrong, right? Right?
No, it's more about how we seem to let the wrongs slide when they're committed by extremely wealthy, powerful, connected people. Everyone else gets the full weight of the law crashing down on their head. Media companies can win verdicts against teenagers for millions, but nobody goes to jail, and most still get fat bonuses, after all the bullshit that the banks were pulling?

Exactly. Salon.com blogger Glenn Greenwald has brought up this issue for years, and has finally written an entire book on it: With Liberty and Justice for Some. That about sums it up. But that's how widespread the issue is: there's so much of it out there it takes hundreds of pages to document it all.
