Who Is More Dangerous?

The man on the right is Salim Ahmed Hamdan. He was Osama bin Laden’s driver. He was convicted of materially aiding terrorists. He was sentenced to 5 1/2 years in prison. The man on the left is Jamie Olis. He was an accountant for Dynergy Corp., and was convicted of materially aiding activities that were later determined to be “fraudulent tax planning.” He was sentenced to more than 24 years in prison (reduced to 6 years – still 6 months more than bin Laden’s driver – after appeal). Tell me, who is more dangerous. And what do these two sentences tell us about the priorities of our justice system and our political classes. Free Jamie Olis!

    Jamie olis truly was unfairly sentenced. Having the amazing opportunities to visit with olis personally, I have the abillity to say this for sure. Even still, a more obvious dentence for olis, would be that of his colleagues: Foster and Sharky whom were sentenced to less than a year each. A 6 year sentence at a medium security prison, after appeal, is outrageous for an honestly hard working, good intentioned man.
