Jon Stewart spent some time last night breaking down the latest happenings in the Wall Street versus Occupy battle. To explain, he brought on Samantha Bee from the FVU – Financial Victims Unit.
"Ever since they very innocently crashed our entire economy through purposeful and fraudulent activities, banks and the bankers who bank them have weathered attacks from all quarters" – whether that be from the government or the Occupy Wall St. protesters, Stewart said.
And these "vampires" going after banks finally got a bit of blood, as Stewart put it, with Kareem Serageldin being sentenced to 30 months in prison for conspiracy to falsify books and records. But to even the score, one Occupy protester was convicted of assaulting a police officer earlier this week, facing up to seven years in prison.
Chief FVU Correspondent Samantha Bee explained: "I am down here on Wall Street where everyone is breathing a sigh of relief now that Cecily McMillan, aka The Menace, is finally off the street."
"It must've been a very difficult time for the Wall Streeters to know that she was out there and capable of letting them know from across the street how much she disapproved of them," Stewart said.
