DeChristopher on Moyers - Why'd He Go to Jail?

Author: Reilly Capps/Wednesday, June 12, 2013/Categories: environment

The activist, interviewed by Bill Moyers. He makes some powerful points about the government is aggregating power to itself, how juries have lost their power and autonomy, "you have an entire population that plays out the plans of a tyrannical dictator." The full show is interesting, since his interview comes alongside an interview with Gretchen Morgenson of the New York Times, talks about how the banks are still too big to fail. It begs the question -- why did a person like Tim DeChristopher go to jail when virtually no one from the giant banks did. All DeChristopher did was stop some drilling that probably wasn't a good idea anyway, while banks like JP Morgan Chase virtually wrecked the whole economy. Matt Taibbi has asked this question as well as anyone. DeChristopher was eloquent and interesting as always. Watch his portion of the interview.
