2. By now it is easier to name crimes that Trump and his family haven't had something to do with.

I'm pretty sure that they have never done any cattle rustling.

8. Shawshank Redemption.

Iíd put the clip up for you but itís quite graphic. Letís just say he takes the easy way out of being held responsible for his crimes.

13. Movie: Shawshank Redemption

The prison warden was stealing money from government.
He sees the marshals arriving and shoots himself before he can be apprehended.

15. Little information

He was running scams using his prisoners as free labor and skimming money from different companies for the costs. Andy who was in jail for murder but was actually innocent was a former banker and ran the books for him.

A young prisoner named Tommy heard what Andy was in for and knew it wasn't him because he heard a story from a different prisoner from another prison he was incarcerated in that he killed the people they found Andy guilty of murdering. So Andy goes to the warden and tells him but he doesn't obviously buy it and Andy calls him obtuse. Warden tosses Andy in solitary confinement for a month and has Tommy killed so he can't testify in a new trial.

Essentially when Andy escaped he stole all of Norton's money and sent the books to the newspaper. Thus exposing him as corrupted and a murderer. He kills himself because he's guilty

5. No sadly

Norton knew he was guilty. Trump firmly believes he's so innocent. Besides he is too much of a coward to kill himself. He thinks hes fucking god

10. Slight disagreement

Deep down in his evil little soul, Trump knows he's guilty. It's the layers of bull shit on top that allows him to act this way.

18. He knows he is guilty and doesn't care. The most entitled mfer in our history.

It is his right to break laws and get away with it. It is his destiny.

17. I love the scene where Red, aka Morgan Freeman is walking around looking for the rock Andy, aka ..

.... Tim R told him to look for. Ironweed is blowing seed heads. I know that land and I know
that plant.

19. It's that same moment Nixon had...

...just before his resignation address to the nation began. The look on his face showed pure guilt before he began to speak.

28. More likely Warden Norton in the book, not the movie.

Norton's end in the book was much less cinematic, and much less satisfying. It states that a year after Defresne escapes from Shawshank, Norton retires 'a broken man' who later takes up residence in a nursing home.

Norton's impulse to kill himself is absent from the book because Defresne escaping with Norton's money and blowing the whistle on his abuses are a subplot restricted to the film.

Anyway, whether we like it or not, Trump will probably remain free, but a 'broken man' all the same...

29. Hopefully karma will give him a very very beautiful future

full of never-ending and tremendous nastiness - and devoid of any recollection that he was ever president
