That doesn't change the fact that laws are not equal for all people and it's distribution isn't fair. Just look at the bigger criminals that are out there, besides small crooks and thieves. The big corrupted corporations. They commit bigger crimes than all muggers in the world and they stay out of prison. And the fact remains, that the more money you have the better lawyer you get, so the better chances to get free.
