Here's a fact that may make your blood boil: Nearly 8,000 Occupy Wall Street protesters have been arrested in association with the activist movement, while not one banker has been prosecuted for the actions that lead up to the country's financial meltdown.
The website OccupyArrests.com has tracked 7,736 in 122 cities nationwide since the Occupy movement began in September 2011.
On Monday, hundreds of members of Occupy Our Homes, an organization that supports homeowners facing foreclosure, protested outside of the Justice Department to speak out against homeowner abuses in the wake of the housing crisis. Seventeen former homeowners were arrested that day, according to Washington police.
"We want our attorney general, Eric Holder, to bring some accountability from the banks and put them in jail," protester Vivian Richardson, whose home was foreclosed on in 2010, told The Huffington Post Monday.
The Department of Justice has long been a target of Occupy protesters for its unwillingness to take judicial action against those responsible for the financial crisis.
Just last week, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) sent a letter to federal officials demanding to know why no Wall Street bank has faced prosecution in the wake of the crisis.
