    But at a whole different level of injustice IMO.

    A couple of trips back... Middle of the night.. Speeding rich guy flys over a junction without giving way and smashes some poor slob in a camry.. The police come and the rich guy basically had the camry driver told pay for the rich guys car or go to jail.. Simply for driving along at night.

    As to the poor factory type garment workers.. Slaves of a type really.
