If you have "no place to go," come here!

Only the little people commit crimes

Apparently the EU has also lost all sense of proportion when it comes to criminal sentencing.

So, if I understand this correctly, it's 6 years in jail for evading taxes on imported garlic. Wouldn't the appropriate punishment for this offense be a fine? Talk about a victimless crime.

But if you work for a major bank and destroy the economy of several countries, oopsie! You get a bye, just try to do better next time.

I guess it's not only US judges/courts which are criminally insane.
