Obama, Using Wal-Mart, Has a Chance to Redeem Himself
Even if incarceration didn't have a deterrent effect, it would be, quite simply, the right thing to do. It would be justice. Perhaps Eric Holder ought to stand out on Pennsylvania Avenue one of these days and take a look at the building where he works. There it is, on a plaque right at the front door: "Department of Justice." Wal-Mart has a long and dreary record of acting like a bully and getting away with it. A little dose of justice seems long overdue.
