Culture of Corruption Update

Store owners busted after stealing millions in food-stamp scheme

Money quote:
"What's going on here is to the tune of $2 million in a four-block area, imagine what's going on throughout the rest of the state and the rest of the country,"
They couldn't do this without the willing participation of food stamp recipients. The article says they are stealing from "the area's poorest residents" as if they have no control. But, "the area's poorest residents" know what they are doing, they are not ignorant of what is going on here.

I'm not excusing the store owners - no way - but let's not pretend they are without willing accomplice.
