You are talking about a high level corruption - it's a problem, agree. It's a problem for every country, and in the US it's huge. So what now - totally disband police, dismantle the whole notion of a low level crime? Allow everyone to steal, rob, kill, rape? Do we now build a society where the only force resource is roaming mobs and your own gun? This is not the solution to those high level corruption problems, obviously.
Two separate issues.
While people get all worked up about petty silly crimes - where security cams help in identifying the thieves - of which many get caught via facial rec programs..I think if recognition of the lasting damage caused by 'high level' /white collar ' (which is rarely very rarely enforced and prosecuted) which is only addressed with taxpayer monies drew the same ire as people on here crying about 'looters', whose damage nowhere near matches the anticipated white collar crimes..it just might force the needed changes at government and private circles who go to great lengths to protect themselves. And change at the top of that kind certainly makes it easier for justice to be more balanced and far much more fair and closer to true justice.
It has to come from the bottom, because the at the top, they will not police themselves..it simply turns into a battle of the best legal minds like large craps game with very little punishment at the end of each skirmish.
It is very hard for cops to make bust that ultimately lead to highers up (like the bad Judges story I shared earlier which resulted in a deputy being jailed for doing the right thing) THAT f**ks a cops mind completely up, when he knows he did the right thing but power (think BIll Barr) runs interference and punishment is watered down to nothing.
People need more exposure to these crimes in order to get as angry as they do seeing looters, after all these guys are the biggest looters. And the ones very damaging to every society on nearly every level.
