Meanwhile, one of their ex-traders is trying to bilk them out of $5M.

Why?  Because he promised his mommy that he'd get a $13M bonus, but only got $8M.

I honestly thought you were being hyperbolic.

I know all about your mammal millennial generation and their entitlement and strange connection to their creche-mothers, but I never really observed it in practice, as I prefer to eat more seasoned members of your meatbag race. But... Great Serpent of Tau Ceti, you were not joking.

I honestly don't even know if it is worth it to take this planet over if this is who I will have to work the salt mines.

When you commit crimes, you go to jail. When you don't actually commit any crime but financially illiterate idiots whine about you ripping them off, you don't. See how this works?

"U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff, who oversaw the... cases..."

I wonder how often the judge has had the first letter of his first and last names transposed?

in 'murica, its only criminal if you steal from the Wealthy.


Mr. Ponzi Scheme, Bernard Madoff  (made off)  stole from the wealthy too.  that's why he went to prison and very fast.

When he gets out of prison he will still be an insanely rich man.  If he were dealing pot all his assets would have been taken.

Haha, oh wow.

"Salem asked the court to throw out the arbitrators' ruling against him in part because he said they showed bias, with one member of the panel calling his case "bulls---" during the hearing. "


LOL. This guy deserves the extra $3 mil just for having the sociopathic obliviousness to make such a statement. You should be proud, Goldman Sachs, your creation and former employee has turned out exactly as you intended.

These guys mostly go to Butner Correctional in NC. It's not Club Fed, but it's not PMITA either. It's a federal medium security facility; but you have to ask yourself: do I really want to spend 40 years in a prison, even if I'm not getting ass-raped every day?

Of course not, but without the rape and gang violence, prison wouldn't be too bad I don't think. For a short while.

Robberies of homeless people often go unpunished. But, if they start robbing property owners, you can bet there will be justice.

This is very much like that.

They basically gave him community service.
