"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
I have relatives in prison, now. One doing 100 years. Yes, I know plenty about prisoners, prisons and convicts.Okay, so you either don't know much about the prison system, or you don't know much about prisoners. Fair enough.
***** Because I never feared anyone looking like him either on the streets or Subways in NYC. Also he never held a Public Office and at one stage was at the point of coming clean with minimal losses compared to what eventually occured, and doing some time OR continuing on with the BS until his luck ran out. Maybe he thought he wouldn't live long enough to get nailed.
**** Considering the volume of posters on this board I guarantee some here would (if they had the resume,resources, or connections) have made the same call and just hoped.
He wasn't beaten up, he fell out of bed
