This shows a scandalous lack of respect for the banking overlords.

This wouldn't have happened under the Shah.

Anyone who has a problem with any of the activities of bankers is automatically an anti-Semite.

It's amazing how liberals praise the idea of hanging people who steal money, but if I want to hang a rapist or child molester I'm a monster.  Don't get me wrong, I want to hang all the farkers, but how liberals are able to take a situational stand on capital punishment rather than a moral stand blows my mind.

Fraud is not a victimless crime, even when you steal from the rich or companies (who can hurt you and will not stop until they do).

As the Golem in Terry Pratchett's Going Postal explains to the former con artist he is guarding (the con artist is "former" in the sense of being legally dead, having been hanged to within an inch of his life by Lord Vetenari's expert hangsman), fraud is murder. When you rob people of enough money, they kill themselves or die prematurely because they have no money to buy food, medicine, etc. The con artist's cons have robbed people and cost them their lives and more--a farmer who bought a dud horse hanged himself because he realized his family was ruined--the father of the con artist's fancy, Miss Dearheart, was robbed of his company by large-scale fraud and her brother killed by an "accident". In short, money is like life-blood--steal enough of it and your victim dies.

$2.6 billion dollars is a lot of ruined lives. I am generally opposed to the death penalty. Canada has retained the death penalty only for treason. But the scope of this kind of fraud is, as the charges mentioned at the beginning of the article state:

"Four people were sentenced to death on charges of corruption on earth and disrupting the country's economic system ...,"

This is fraud on a scale which is equivalent not merely to murder or serial murder or mass murder, but treason. Wrecking the economy of one country can also wreck the economy of others (such as the poor countries and poorer people  who have been injured by the current world recession).

WE NEED TO HANG MORE BANKERS, LAWYERS AND CON ARTISTS.

I don't see any reason to suppose that the charges were false or the trial grossly unfair. The Iranian Imans may be dictators and religious fanatics, but they aren't all that dishonest--they sincerely believe in Islamic and Iranian justice. So yes, I add my voice to those who say that they did the right thing for a change.

You can't give fraudsters a second chance--they'll take it!

Another piece of literature which informs my thinking on stealing from the rich is the old priest in an Irish novel who gives a good talking to a young man who has stolen some peats (fuel). He points out that if you must steal, you should steal from a poor man. A poor man has one peat, if he loses it, he is scarcely worse off. He will forgive or forget. But a rich man with 100 peats, like the parable of the Good Shephere, will not cease looking for the thief who takes one of those 100 peats, and when he finds you, you will pay the full penality of the law.

It's not only murder to steal large amounts of money from the rich or poor or the state, it is also disruptive of society and the economy, so it should be punished severely.

There is no such thing as too big to fail. Eventually all dictators over step and fall. Their life expectancy is no better than a Medieval king or tribal chieftain's life span (about 11 years was the average reign in England, a particularly peaceful and well-run country).

So fark 'em, we won't miss 'em. There are some relatively honest bankers and there's never a shortage of slightly bent bankers, lawyers, politicians, regulators, stockbrokers, etc. NEVER.

mongbiohazard: neongoats: Phew, gotta say, I like this precedent.

Here in America we practically give them a hand job for stealing, and let them keep their loot in offshore accounts.

And write our tax laws to favor them on top of it all...


Ha Ha and then call citizens freeloaders.

namatad: Vodka Zombie: When our bankers commit fraud, they don't even see the inside of a courtroom.

Imagine if Bernie Madoff had been slow hung on Wall Street instead of sent to that comfy prison?


Madoff only got caught because he stole from the rich.  he should have stuck to stealing from the poor like the rest of them.
