«C'est sûr que la justice américaine est beaucoup plus violente, estime aussi Eva Joly. Ils ne font pas la différence entre le directeur du FMI et n'importe quel autre suspect. C'est l'idée de l'égalité des droits».
Translation: "Clearly, the US justice is much more violent than in France. They do not make a difference between the IMF chief and any other suspect. That's their idea of equal rights." -- French former judge Eva Joly, now a politician serving on the European parliament, commenting on the photos of a handcuffed Strauss-Kahn.
I am shocked that she is shocked that the US justice does not make a difference between criminal suspects according to their status in society. That's one potential presidential candidate who, after that comment, can be sure of not getting my vote.
