Call Batman. Gotham Is Running Out of Time.

Having been held to zero accountability for subprime in 2007, "entrepreneurial" banks have branched out into all manner of criminal enterprise:

BBG, Via ZH: 

Organized crime now lightly "taxed" by government. Corrupt society tunes in The Kardashians:

"Investors yawned at the news Wednesday that five of the world’s biggest banks, including JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Citigroup Inc., agreed to plead guilty in a currency-rigging probe. They’re among six banks that will pay $5.8 billion in fines."

“This is the first time you had Citigroup, JPMorgan or any U.S. bank plead guilty essentially to criminal conduct"

"By granting waivers allowing lenders to keep operating even after a felony plea, the government has managed to punish firms while protecting them from fatal consequences."

And there are still tools who wonder why the riots in Baltimore took place among people whose lives have been systematically degraded to Third World standards, by obscenely wealthy government-sanctioned organized criminals.
