Who are the real criminals in the United States? That's the question that cartoonist Jen Sorensen asks in her latest piece.

"The devastation caused by white-collar criminals — the loss of so many people’s homes and life savings, leading to broken families, poor health, depression, and suicide, has caused suffering on an immense scale. Yet bankers have to try very, very hard to get themselves arrested, and even then they usually aren’t successful," Sorensen wrote on her website.

"Many in the financial world are real thugs who are never treated the way police often treat black citizens in Ferguson and many other places," she says.

Jen Sorenson is a cartoonist based in Austin, Texas.
