Too Big to Fail, or Jail

This is appalling:
"...the attorney general [Eric Holder], while testifying before the Judiciary Committee, was challenged by Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) about the glaring absence of any indictments against leading bankers or big banks coming out of the financial collapse. Holder responded that, essentially, these banks were too big to jail.

"'The size of some of these institutions becomes so large that it does become difficult for us to prosecute them when we are hit with indications that if you do prosecute, if you do bring a criminal charge, it will have a negative impact on the national economy,' he said."
In other words, once the mob gets big enough, they can get away with anything. Holder's statement is one of the most depressing things I've ever heard said about America.

Someone really needs to smack this country upside its head and knock some sense into it. Please hurry.
