Different treatment for corporate crooks

Has anyone been following the Parmalat food giant scandal in Europe? Dubbed “Europe’s Enron,” it offers some interesting alternatives on how to deal with corporate crime. Within days of reporting massive transfers of funds out of the companies’ coffers, the company founder was detained and jailed. Within a week, seven more were were arrested and others are sought.

Here in America, corporate criminals are allowed to remain free, given golden parachutes, and/or invited to White House dinners.
