    Some careless person seems to have stolen that piece of paper from the megawebs. They should be jailed indefinitely and be castrated with a spoon.

    Nothing at all.

    The guy who could afford a good lawyer got off lightly. That's how justice works.

    just shows our lady balancing the scales Justitia isn't really blind, and someone blindfolded her with some see through fabric.

    The amount is pretty much irrelevant if that's what you're referring too....


    I'd hazard a guess that the harsher sentence was given for conviction of a violent crime and that the guy was charged with armed robbery, more than likely held up a bank teller at knife or gun point.

    Where as the embezzlement was simply dishonesty and taking advantage of corporate loop holes.

    At the end of the day I personally want resources spent keeping violent criminals locked up and off the streets

    Criminal codes punish weapons crimes more harshly than theft. They also provide longer sentences for repeat offenders. Judging by the sentence, the bank robber probably had priors. It's not likely the AIG guy had a rap sheet.

    Well at the very least, they are both getting punished.

    I guess thats the only good thing you could take away from this.

    - I disagree, sort of. I think if you take $100 through embezzlement or white collar crime, you shouldn't get the same as violent crime. But there's a point when white collar crime adds up - maybe 1M of that was from some company that laid of workers because of not enough profit, and that caused 1-2 to file for bankruptcy and then a marriage ends and kids were involved...
    That's just 1M of the 500M.

    I think white collar crime is way way underpunished. Suited boys with their degrees and polished ways and pedigrees should shake in their boots at the idea of accounting shananigans or shady deals that count on fine print confusions. Really, I'd rather be hustled for $100 by a bum than swindled of thousands by a smiling suit.

    Aside from someone stealing this bit of info and posting it online, I found that it was hard to conclude how well or badly this man was acting or treated because a lot of the words are missing from a couple lines. But, somehow I still see it as just wrong.
