Justice Dept. jails a nun, but not one banker: Sign a petition | Daily Kos

This week, an 84-year-old nun was sentenced to three years in prison for deliberately trespassing at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge Tennessee facility to protest nuclear weapons.

But while the Justice Department threw the book at Sister Megan Rice, no banker has been prosecuted in the five years since Wall Street tanked the economy. The Justice Department’s priorities are messed up and flat-out wrong.

Sign the petition: 84-year-old nuns protesting nuclear weapons shouldn’t spend more time in jail than Wall Street bankers.
