Your Government Inaction: Episode XXVII

Under Federal sentencing guidelines as of 1997, which was the most heinous of the following offenses?

A) Embezzling between $10,000,000 and $20,000,000 from a bank.
B) Using threats of violence to extort between $2,500,000 and $5,000,000 from someone.
C) Kidnapping someone and seriously injuring them in the process.
D) Possession of five grams of crack cocaine.

If you answered "E) None of the above, as all four acts carry a recommended minimum five-year sentence at Club Fed", you are absolutely correct!

(I've been reading James Bovard again, which is ever so good for the circulation. Does it show?)
