    If all the DOJ is going to do is enforce the lower tier of a two tiered justice system then it's time we cut down on USAs and Career prosecutors.

    Lets cut back on the FBI also. How sickening was it to watch the second in charge of the FBI smile at the camera when the PBS reporter asked him why no arrests or indictments of member of the "club, other wise know as The Bank Inc.

    In 2004 , 2000 FBI agents were assigned to terrorism while 200 agents were left , nation wide for white collar crime. Is it any coincidence that no one bothered to staff up?

    This is what happens with a two tier justice system;  we get tragedies like A Schwartz, overcrowding at prisons for nonsense crimes, Poker sites vigorously enforced until states say they would like Poker sites and then we get "OK" because we know that's going to be privatized, whistle blowers harassed and ruined if not jailed, and a variety of other injustices from the Dept of Justice, where no is supposed to be above the rule of law. Listen to Lanny Breuer tell us why.

    Watch The Untouchables on PBS. See more from FRONTLINE.
