Meanwhile banks like Chase charge poor people $12.00 a month just have 
checking and push debit card paychecks on low income jobs where they 
charge just for the poor to check how much they have on it.

That's not criminal though, it's taking from the poor so the rich can 
buy new cars and cruises but it's not criminal so there is no reason why 
we should scoff at that.
