Separate and Unequal Justice

0

America’s wealth gap has corrupted its justice. That’s the conclusion in investigative reporter Matt Taibbi’s best-selling book, “The Divide, American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap,” Why has America’s prison population more than doubled over the past 20 years, skewing heavily dark skinned and poor, while Wall Street’s epidemic of white-collar crime over the same period goes almost entirely unpunished? Blame the wealth gap. Taibbi says it has produced a hypocritical double standard of justice that harshly prosecutes the poor but lets the wealthy walk away untouched. His book, “The Divide,” is a gripping explanation of why that is.
