"Liberté, Egalité, DSK"


Speaking to the same broadcaster, Eva Joly, a well-known French magistrate and leader of the French Green Party who is expected to run for in next year’s presidential election, agreed that “these are very violent images.” She added that the American justice system “doesn’t distinguish between the director of the I.M.F. and any other suspect.”

I doubt Joly actually has this right, but certainly a system in which all are equal before the law is something we should be aiming for.
