    Ugh, then DíSouza would choose prison.

    There is no blanket answer. From me anyway.
    Nor would I demand a blanket answer from you since, like you, I believe different situations are different. I was only looking for clarification after you made the statement...

    I believe that thievery is...in principle...an offense punishable by imprisonment. The reason we have judges, in my opinion, is to determine whether the offense in the specific circumstance is actually deserving of that full punishment.

    Well, your post suggests all found guilty of fraud should be jailed, no distinction.

In addition, they went after Jin-Woo Kim for leaking information and they didn't go after Rosen. Again, I don't like the idea of monitoring a member of the press, but if the purpose of doing so is to stop classified information from being leaked, they're at least doing the wrong thing for the right reason.

    My statement was too broad then.

    According to you, none. I'm not such an immovable object on the subject.
