Rich man's "justice"

Regular people are often held in jail before conviction, sometimes (as in the case of prisoners in Guantanamo) for years even when there is no evidence against them, or (as in the case of the Cuban Five), even when their initial conviction was declared null and void.

For the rich, there are different standards. Ken Lay was convicted back in May and wasn't even due to be sentenced until October (!!!), in the meantime, he was busy relaxing (evidently not sufficiently) in his Aspen vacation home (which should have been seized years ago and sold off to pay off Enron employees victimized by Lay) when he died.
