Alvarez1 Leilani Alvarez A Rose English 115 November 13, 2017 No Corporate Justice For The 1% Over and over again, we hear breaking news about celebraties seemingly breaking the law, but seem to never actually get convicted. The one percent get away with crimes without there being actual repercussions, its normally lesser penalties but there are those that get away with much more than blue collar crimes. Strange enough, there are those that seem to simply be indestructible but are actually the 1% of the population who against all odds risen to money and power tend to get away with almost any crime, whether its vandalism, assault or even murder, there seems to be nothing money and power can't buy. Being part of the one percent is very appealing but how appealing is it really when you see what happen to the 1%. Mark Wahlberg, and OJ Simpson, both top dogs in their field and extremely rich, but as far as the general public knows the one percent are above the law but who’s fault is it; the victims, the system, or the money. By giving so much power to the one percent, celebrities feel entitled and believe they can do anything without any repercussions, but everyone at one point have to face the consequences of their actions.

Alvarez2 Mark Wahlberg, and OJ Simpson well known known individuals who were on top of the game and did what they pleased and felt they could break the law because of their social standing and get away with anything even rape and murder. “celebrities who seem to have gotten away with some pretty heinous crimes, like rape and murder. Most people would have been put away for years, but not these celebrities. They are rich, famous and able to get away with anything they want.”[Cate] If a normal social standing person had committed half the crimes celebrities (the one percent) get away with they would face the full extent of the law and wouldn't see the light of day for a long time. However, but when it comes to celebrities they are the exception of the law and why? Because money talks. The more money you have, the better the person and the better your seen by others because people with money are automatically perceived as good people because having money is everything, and automatically gives you no reason to do anything illegal.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
