Let them eat cake

If you're rich, you will never be jailed -- no matter what you do.
Federal prosecutors say they're appealing the sentence for billionaire Beanie Babies creator that included no prison time for hiding around $25 million from U.S. tax authorities.
Hide twenty-five million dollars from the government, pay no taxes, get found out...and the judge says no problema. If you're poor and black and you steal a dollar, they lock you up forever. But this guy gets off -- and is praised in the process.
At his sentencing last month, a judge went to lengths to praise Warner's charitable giving and concluded society would be better served by keeping him out from behind bars. He was sentenced to two years of probation.
Must be nice to be rich.
