With the Obama Administration Justice Department announcing, after many embarrassments trying to persecute white non-criminals such as Ferguson policeman Darren Wilson, that they are finally going to focus upon white collar crime, it’s worth taking a look at the FBI’s Most Wanted List for white collar criminals.
White collar crime, it appears, is today a vibrantly diverse field, with native born American whites having been relegated to a small minority of the most wanted offenders.
Reading from left to right, the Most Wanted were born in Israel, Unknown (Asian), Brazil, Nigeria, South Korea, Syria, Laos, America (Asian), America (white), Russia. The one American-born white guy is named Hamed Ahmed Elbarki.
Now that’s diversity!
Most Wanted lists in modern days tend to be clogged with foreigners, in part because it’s much easier for them to go on the lam. Homeboys tend to get caught and removed from the Most Wanted lists. In the tax fraud case in which I served on the jury, for example, the idea man of the two Iranian brother-in-law used car dealers had absconded back to Iran where American law couldn’t touch him.
Of course, this greater ability to flee abroad with some hope of escape offers immigrants a relative incentive to enter a life of white collar crime.
