Benjimin_Dover: MrDebacle: Their e-mail writing skills appear on par with a typical pre-teen.

Being in IT, I have been privy to see the emails of everybody from the top on down. It seems that the ones at the top are the worst at it.

The last manager I had who reported directly to a SVP never heard of a salutation or a period and did not know what the SHIFT key was for.


eh, probably just quickly tapping out from blackberries

Here's a book about it by a buddy of mine, who was the head ETF trader there:

Street Freak: Money and Madness at Lehman Brothers.

someonelse: Debeo Summa Credo: So those 'lucky people' are stealing.

To quote you, "you can't prosecute anyone who hasn't committed a crime." Tiny fists, pound away.


Oh, I'm not advocating for their arrest or prosecution.

I am in favor of stopping them from stealing and putting the house in the hands of the rightful owners.

I know the banks farked up, but if the bank puts an extra $100 in your account is it yours? If your employer gives you two paychecks accidentally can you say "tough shiat boss it's your mistake", if the clerk give you change for a $20 when you paid with a $10 are you morally entitled to keep the extra? Of course not, and staying in a home that you've stopped paying the mortgage on but haven't been foreclosed on because the servicer cant get the paperwork in order is no more justified than any of the other scenarios. You are taking something that doesn't belong to you.

If you keep your mouth shut about why (ie. no letters to the press regarding your GRAND PLAN) you could probably kill 5 or 6 of the bastards before they figure out what's going on....

They are greatly outnumbered. How come the crazy militia guys can't focus on people like this, instead of the gubmint and people in black helicopters?

I know, it's probably too complex for them. And not nearly as interesting as most of the conspiracy theories.



Maybe they know something we don't... paradigms of logic, rationality and sanity that they are...*sigh* They can't even be bothered to figure out who the bad guys are. They remind me of an attack dog or a thug, you just point them at something and yell KILL killer KILL(yo). Just don't expect them to make decent judgement calls, think on their feet, or display good cooperative problem solving skills.

FlashHarry: has anybody gone to jail yet?

personally, i think the justice dept should go after some of these CEOs and CFOs for multiple-count grand theft and seek triple-digit sentences.


Jail? Are you kidding? Jail is for little people. Fuld sold his $13 million dollar mansion to his wife for $100 so all those broke assed peasants he created couldn't get it in a lawsuit, and is right now rolling around in a swimming pool full of $100 bills drinking margaritas and laughing at you.

Jail! Really, you guys kill me some times.

The only part of your plan that I have a problem with is the notion that you could "kill 5 or 6 of the bastards before they figure out what's going on.... " I think after the second Wall Street f#cker got a pink mist haircut from 500 yards away they'd put it together. Although I hasten to add that despite this minor quibble I am in no way objecting to this proposed course of action.



Hmmm, my cunning plan.....perhaps if we keep it to 1 per year, you know make a holiday of it, we could off a few more before they catch on. I have to agree with you though, 5 or 6 is probably pushing it in one year....

xanadian: FTFA: Most important, the cache dispels the myth that Dick Fuld, chief executive officer of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., and his close associates were unaware of the risks their business faced in 2007 and 2008.

So, I have to wonder where Mr. Dick Fluid is right now...

/probably not in jail
//probably not on skid row, either


After Lehman :
`
On November 10, 2008 Fuld transferred his
Florida mansion to his wife Kathleen for $100
in order to protect the house from potential
legal actions against him. They had bought it
four years earlier for $13.56 million.
`
In late March 2009, Fuld had an email sent out
stating that he joined Matrix Advisors, a New
York-based hedge fund.
`
In May 2010, Fuld was registered by the
Financial Industry Regulatory Authority
(FINRA) as employed by Legend Securities, a
securities brokerage and investment banking
firm in New York.

they put down 'resisting arrest' and the process moves merrily along it's way.

FORT WALTON BEACH - A 47-year-old man was charged April 23 with misdemeanor resisting officer without violence.

According to the Okaloosa County Sheriff's report, a deputy spotted the man walking in the middle of Tilden Avenue, which is known to be a high-crime area.

When the deputy stopped the man and asked for his identification, the man replied, "(Expletive) you, that's for you to figure out."

it happens to a lot of OWS protesters. they get arrested for resisting arrest and nothing else.

No, they get arrested for disturbing the public.

Again, we can debate if someone should be arrested, or if cops are lying, all that.

Technically, no law was broken. And thanks to a 1987 Supreme court ruling, you can't sue them-but have to enter arbitration-which is not under public preview like the court system.

so basically our only recourse is...murder?


That is such a harsh word.

People with 20/20 hindsight would like to jail people who lacked 20/20 foresight.

I saw much of the bubble coming. I was treated as a nutcase, and I completely understood why since my view of the financial risks were so far from mainstream. To those of you who saw nothing but think the titans of industry should be jailed since they "must have seen it coming" I'd just like to say: fark you for not listening and fark you for trying to blame a scapegoat. The problem was caused by everyone who didn't see it coming but invested in housing, sold housing, built housing, financed housing, or just told a coworker "you should buy."

Where do you think the two trillion in liquidity Big Business is sitting on? The farking sky? The only reason they aren't spending (or hiring) is that would lead to hyper inflation if they were to. They are using it as leverage against the fed from putting any sort of regulation whatsoever to deal with it.

They have these bullshiat charges even in relation to "real" crime.

CSB- When I was 21 or 22 I was with three friends in a car driving through Overbrook Park in Phila. We get pulled over for a busted tail light and my friend in the front passenger seat didn't have his ID on him. They use this as P. C. to remove him from the car and search him. They find about 1/2 gram of pot and arrest him for it. They don't search me or the driver of the vehicle. Later that night when we picked Mike up from the station he had an insane amount of charges. Possession, paraphernalia, disorderly conduct were all no surprise. Now they don't do this in Philly anymore as anything under 30 grams is a non-summary offense but they gave him "possession with intent to distribute but not sell." When Mike asked the cop what that was, the cop explains that it was presumed he was going to smoke that pot with us so it was intent to distribute but not sell. His lawyer got it dropped but if he didn't, it would have been a distribution charge with jail time attached.

yeah, but the banks chopped up those loans, rolled them into other products that were almost entirely comprised of other chopped up loans and then sold that financial sausage product to a bunch of suckers who didn't really know what it was they were buying.

when the whole thing fell apart, nobody knew who owned what anymore. that's why the banks really don't want to talk about this mess. they cannot legally prove they own half the loans they sold.

Unfortunately, as Aasif Mandvi pointed out on TDS last week, you can't get convicted of a crime for something that isn't illegal.


I mentioned this when the Occupy movement got going: Everything they did was 100% legal. Paying your CEOs gazillions of dollars for no reason? Legal. Knowing the market is (probably) going to tank and not telling anyone? Legal. Voting to dump shares in your company as long as it's more than six months after you bought them? Legal. Everything else these bottomsuckers did? Legal.

Just like being stupid isn't a crime, being greedy isn't a crime. You want to change this crap, we need financial reform at the top, not the bottom.

Yes, but what do you do when no one can prove who owns the loan? If I pay Party A, but Party B owns the loan, Party B can come back when the dust settles and ask for repayment of ALLLLLLL those outstanding payments that you made in good faith to someone else. How easy is it gonna be to get Party A to pay Party B?

Same scenario, only now, neither A nor B can prove they own the loan. Settled law says as soon as I make a payment, I'm admitting I owe on that account. So I have to refuse to pay both A and B until one of them can prove who owns my loan. If neither of them did the paperwork correctly to transfer ownership, or their hired paper-signers didn't write the actual name of the client bank hiring them to write clear paperwork, TFB; I get a free house.

Yeah, it's a technicality, but there are real legal reasons for that to be so. These documents exist for a reason, and to fail to write them accurately is asking to lose lots of money. You can bet your sweet bippy that the homeowner would lose no less than the house and most of their life savings (as well as gain a bankruptcy filing and/or big legal bill on top) if they failed to write clear paperwork, or failed to hold up their end of the deal.

The banking industry needs serious oversight, and the only Presidential candidate who will even attempt this is Barack Obama. Sure, he played the game when he came into office, but so would've I and you in that clusterfark of a crisis...Mitt-knee is not the answer. He laps bank spit. Just ask him.

;)

P.S. Barack Obama to heal some of this trauma against the non-banks, please. Next term. Game's on.

timujin: Gyrfalcon: Knowing the market is (probably) going to tank and not telling anyone? Legal.

How about knowing you're selling a turd wrapped in pretty paper and calling it a present?


It's AAA credit... In Moody's opinion. It's only an opinion, you shouldn't make financial choices based on it, at least in their opinion.

Cubicle Jockey: Debeo Summa Credo: Weaver95: And these people aren't in a jail cell...why?

Because they didn't commit any crimes. No matter how angry you are, or how many times you pound your tiny fists of rage into the table screaming for the heads of bankers, you can't prosecute anyone who hasn't committed a crime. And making poor business decisions (orawriting emails in the style of a 12-year old) isn't a crime.



You would have voted to acquit at Nuremburg.


That actually happened. Some of the nazis were not guilty, and were acquited. They didn't just say "fark it we'll find something to get you on". They let them go.
