US Federal authorities have arrested five people accused of aiding a massive electronic bank heist in New York earlier this year. The US District Attorney's office for Eastern New York said that the five were detained following the discovery of photographic evidence that allegedly links the men to a $45m cash-swindling operation …
Interesting how the US "justice" system works....
Compare and contrast the two statements:
The US Department of Justice notes that "the charges contained in [today's] indictment are merely allegations, and the defendants, including those charged today, are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty."
"As alleged (...) these defendants were packing bags to the brim with stolen cash, destined for the cybercriminal organizers of these attacks," claimed US Attorney Loretta Lynch.
"Today, we have sent them packing once again – but this time, to jail."
Yep, nice presumption of innocence, there.
What else would you expect...
... from an US attorney called Lynch?
...and once again, a bunch of arguably over-greedy "expendables" with rather poor judgement - who basically just accepted some money and passed it along - are paraded in chains as some sort of trophy catch, while the actual masterminds behind the whole operation remain at large? Quite possibly indefinitely? Way to go, indeed.
The best way to rob a bank
is to own it. These are small-fry amateurs.
It's a good time...
