    Should these Banksters have been jailed, or was "Justice" served?

    Barclays Execs Get No Criminal Charges for International Manipulation of Interest Rates, But You Can Go to Jail for Smoking Pot

    Is this S.O.P. for the 1%?

    Do bankers operate under different law than you and I?

    Why were the execs not found personally liable?

    Is this an OK for them to keep doing it, because they reaped much more than the fines?

    These are some of the groups bailed out by the taxpaying public, you and I, and this
    is how we are repaid?

    I don't think that's a fair comparison, since marijuana shouldn't be illegal in the first place. Market manipulation definitely should be.

    Is this S.O.P. for the 1%?
    Everyone shouts 1% like it's an us vs them issue. Many "1 percenters" are very beneficial to the country, not only through the generating of jobs, but through corporate philanthropy. Many of these "evil corporations" give hundreds of millions to non-profits, community projects, and medical research that are of great benefit to the alleged 99ers.

    Some get off, some don't, it just depends on how deeply rooted the accused is, and how far their influence spreads. Same reason you'll never see a president go to prison, or why it's rare for a Sheriff to get pulled over for speeding. By no means am I justifying it, but that's how it is.

    The ones that are higher up the food chain get better treatment, but the "expendables" are fair game in our current system.

    Why were the execs not found personally liable?
    I don't know enough about the case to give a definitive answer.

    Is this an OK for them to keep doing it, because they reaped much more than the fines?
    450 mil is a lot of money, even for a billionaire. That's a huge loss, and their name has been publicly tarnished. The Fed is srs bsns, nobody ****s with the Fed. Nobody, and the Barclay's know this now.

    Yep, pretty much. Fantastic, isn't it? This is why I support sink or swim.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Everyone of those people involved should be thrown into prison.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    450 million dollar fine out of a 2 billion dollar profit is nothing more than a cut for the government. These people should be thrown into prison.

    You should leave the class warfare occutard nonsense out of this thread.

    It's hard not to think class warfare. In another thread, a first time offender got 160 years in jail and most posters agree it was because he has no money to secure justice. We are beginning to focus on the real white collar crime and because of the bank bailouts most citizens can see that "justice is for the rich and influential," and unless we have a failure of the media (almost guaranteed, "Mighty Wurlitzer") the system must change. Don't hold your hand over your butt waiting for it to happen. Money talks, BS walks. We are in the hands and at the mercy of a bunch of crooks. Scumbag politicians, shyster bankers, politicized courts, blind patriots, and Corporate leeches.
