Is it true that the wealthy are not punished as severe as the poor?

Usually wealthy people can pay their way out of a specific situation, such as getting an expensive and good lawyer, or paying a fine that a poor person isn't capable of paying. I think this means that it is true, but I cannot find a good website to prove this is right. Any help?

Wrong... Rich people are treated better by the law sometimes simply because they can afford lawyers... and this bank business is concrete proof that some are too powerful to be punished... But you are right that equality ends as soon as one person chooses to do better.

It is generally true. You can watch the news and find proof almost daily. The prisons are full of poor folks.

Yes it's true. Because they have money and can afford good lawyers.

Even if you do end up in prison, you're treated differently and get your own special area to live in.

Of course. How much punishment you receive is usually based on how high $$$ your attorney is.

The "poor" get hand outs and taken care of by money taken from from the rich.

Yes pot calling the kettle black. How do you think the government gets money to fund welfare, food stamps, and Medicaid? Taxes from working people.

The question wasn't aimed at working people, it's referring to the wealthy, like those that caused the bank failures. But you had to responded in the typical "defend my overlord" way. Pathetic..
