Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As far as criminal activity goes, the US is now fairly clearly a two tier justice system.

Dimitry Orlov:

Orlov advises staying as far as possible from the U.S. justice system, since it "offers a fine luxury model, but its budget model is manifestly unsafe." Already grossly tipped in favor of the rich, it may drop any pretense of serving justice and become simply a tool for social control. Orlov provides some Soviet examples of this, including the Gulag policy of political imprisonment, and describes America's use of secret jails, torture and indefinite detention as steps in the same direction.
