I heard that a crypto-currency vendor had been arrested for "conspiracy to commit money laundering and operating an unlicencsed money transmitting business" and "failing to file a suspicious activity report" for about a $million in transactions for a site whose primary products were of an illegal nature.

The "failure to file" charge itself could add another 5 years to the potential 25 for the first two charges.

The important difference between this arrest and the non-arrests at Wachovia/Wells Fargo and HSBC seems to be that when the money-laundering is in fiat U.S.Dollars no one goes to jail, but when it's other currency....

It's the only conclusion possible because both the volume of money-allegedly-laundered and the severity of illegal acts being funded are much higher for the $U.S. currency. Hundreds of $billions of fiat currency and an estimated 50,000 murders from the mexican drug industry for the six year period vs. $1million and no murders.

Plus 5 years for each "failure to file" would be a millenium per Bankster Executive by itself.

We have seen how much this Administration has devalued life, with its nonchalant, murder-for-hire program (drone operators are paid and execute kills) and words not food or jobs programs, but don't we still have some laws on the books against banks for facilitating mass killings?

Or was his real crime not having made a $USD contributioh to a certain political warchest?

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
