Baltimore gambling arrests target the little guys

March 30, 2011

It is appropriate that we worry about the 13 people who were caught "Partying on the city's dime" (March 29).

But where is the outrage for the "too big to fail gang" of Wall Street bankers who fleeced the common folks, gambled away the lives of so many hard-working citizens and caused world-wide economic robbery?

When will they be apprehended and brought to justice? When will we seize their champagne and thwart their unbridled arrogance?

An old English verse helps us to understand what is going on:

"The law locks up both man and woman

who steal the goose from off the common.

But lets the greater felon loose,

who steals the common from the goose."

Brendan Walsh, Baltimore
