    This is the kind of individual that, thanks to the proscription of Lula da Silva thanks to the efforts of judge Sergio Moro and the Supreme Tribunal, could become Brazil's next president.

    @DT:

    REF: Not if they put him in jail too...

    IF the politicians are jailed [in its truthful sense - without being victimized, and without ANY privileges] each one of them will need to serve - DESRVE - Life-Sentences for The Corruption [MAINLY] + Other SERIOUS Crimes.

    However; MOST of them actually BENEFIT from being behind the bars:
    - KNOWING that they are there for the namesake ONLY
    - in the 5-Star Cells with special [royal] treatment + benefits (strictly denied to the normal prisoners).
    - supposedly for a NUMBER of years but LEGALLY get out by serving the well-SHORTENED sentences.
    - Their colleagues [free or not yet imprisoned] support them [financially, of course] to keep their “Lips Sealed”
    - benefit from the government - receiving absurdly huge compensations for being “WRONGLY” imprisoned.
    - Being “NOT Guilty” anymore, they remain politically active [till dead] and continue to earn the LAVISH privileges - not only for themselves but also for their Families [Relatives+Friends (known as the ORANGES)]

    So Imprisoned or FREE [to steal]; what's the difference?
