I really feel sorry for the guy. The TARP Bandits got tons more cash while sitting at their desks and never had a cop or dog looking for them!

Yes indeed a crime. Ole John Corzine, stole billions and laughed his way to his bank. Peasants get chased down while the oligarchs perch above the laws. Is there no wonder the masses are feeling the same way? Crime is crime and criminals should be punished, all of them! Until that happens, and I doubt it ever will, we will witness a rise in these crimes.
