Actually if they stopped putting black people in jail for selling weed there would be lots of space.

Let that be a lesson to you all for trying to disrespect (shortchange) our "elected" officials (gangsters)

Actually, I see this as a really rayciss case. Raj was nowhere near the top of the foodchain, even with his billion or half. He was a wannabe.

The GWS (Great White Sharks) are still swimming free and will be, for some time to come. Lot's more minnows to  the Gallows yet. Raj was partially screwed by the colour of his skin. No doubt.

Federal system... he serves it all, maybe 10% for GB but that's it!

Real question is where are the rest of them... you know, the crooks that really look like Wall Street bankers... Oh wait, I get it... it's the visible minorities that are the bad guys!

Off to join the Occupy Bay Street in Toronto this weekend... hope to see some ZH fans there!

Steve Cohen (SAC) and Cramer when he was a hedgie bottom feeder do the same things.  Raj should lose his citizenship and be deported after he gets out of the luxury fed prison he will be spending time in.

isnt it somewhat of a death sentence when you rob people of the future wealth forcing them into poverty and how about commodities manipulation that drives up the price of food for the poor worldwide causing starvation and death?

Yes, it's much easier to go after some foreigner (or at least looks alien) then a home grown financial fraudster on Wall Street.

What's next?

You'll try to tell me some Mexican drug cartle pawn tried to assassinate an Arab King?

Not enough money to buy freedom in this case. A message needed to be sent to all the dark skinned foreigners from Wall Street. Don't take jobs from white male criminals or they will make you pay. Sure, work around the margins so Wall Street can say "Hey, we are integrated!" or "There is a woman around here too somewhere, you must of just missed her!" Raj's problem was he did the work of 5-6 white male inside traders at a fraction of the cost. You know how cranky Streeters get when bonuses are short. 11 year sentence= (avg prev sentences) 2 years x (displaced indigenous insider traders, 5-6) 5.5. And he will bend over and take it, because if he causes a fuss, he will be tied to aiding terrorists and a drone will be sent to his home town.

This is nothing short of a travesty of justice. Typical of what passes in the US for a 'pound of flesh"

Meanwhile as TD notes, Mozillo, Bawny Fwank, Dodd, et al get a complete pass on the biggest fraud in the history of the world.

Hell, nobody can even give a legal definition of "insider trading". But don't worry, the kleptocrats at the SEC are busy protecting the public 24/7/365 while surfing for porn 8 hours a day. Sorry to see you get your nuts busted Raj.
