AX THE DEPARTMENT OF INJUSTICE

SHARE AX THE DEPARTMENT OF INJUSTICE

Republicans have the Commerce Department slated for termination. They would do better to abolish the Department of Injustice.

The Department of Commerce wastes a lot of money, but it otherwise does Americans little real harm. In contrast, the Department of Injustice has destroyed the integrity of U.S. law and corrupted the prosecutorial process.The problem here is that most businessmen are honest, as they have to be in order to maintain the trust of suppliers, customers and employees, and so to produce the necessary quota of white-collar criminals, businessmen have to be framed.

This is very easy to do. First of all, there are a jillion confusing regulatory forms, and anyone who makes a mistake can be accused of a conspiracy to mislead the government with fraudulent information.

Let every businessman understand that errors on a regulatory form are grounds for criminal prosecution. What your friendly regulator would once have agreed was a mistake is now grist for charges of white-collar crimes.

This is justice in America?

Congress should ax the Injustice Department before the week is out. A department this corrupt has no constituency.
