    (anonymous, this is quotes on crime!!) Shouldn't be. And not necessary. What if you encounter a big, weak thief and a strong, little thief??

    Which is why every political scandal has a fall guy and not everyone responsible is punished.

    Good interpretation J Carlton. the typical scapegoat.

    (-; I like it but, as a commentary on the criminality of government, it doesn't go far enough. It could say something to the effect: 'thieves, big and little, hang anybody that becomes an irritant, gets in their way, disagrees with them, etc.'

    As Jesus said to think of doing crime is a crime. So hang 'em all big and small.

    We could use a little hanging in Washington, D.C., I think...

    Anonymous, no one said that this is "Liberty" , it's a Czech proverb. I believe it suggests that when the big thieves get caught, they always look for someone lower on the food chain to blame. When the IRS scandal broke, the folks in D.C. blamed some underlings in Cincinnati. They just didn't know anything about it at headquarters.
