Jon Stewart 'Celebrates' Occupier Going To Jail

Posted: Updated:

Only one top banker was sent to jail for the financial meltdown -- and as Jon Stewart pointed out, that's led to a great injustice in the world.

"As Wall Street suffers, the real perpetrators of financial district wrongdoing continue to pay no price," Stewart said on "The Daily Show" Tuesday night. "I'm talking about Occupy Wall Street."

Now, one occupy protester is facing up to seven years in prison.

Or, as Stewart puts it in the clip above: "An Occupier has finally been sent to jail. The arc of the moral universe is long... but it bends to motherfucking justice."

Then again, maybe not.

Senior Financial Victims Unit Correspondent Samantha Bee did the math and found out the punishment for the Occupiers has come up well short.

"Wasn't this about the 99 percent against the 1 percent? That means one banker is worth 99 protesters," she said. "By my count, that puts us 98 convicted hippies short of true justice."

See Bee take on the situation in the clip below.
