Attention Justice Department, This Is How It's Done

Too big to fail my ass, this is exactly what needs to happen on a large scale in this country.

Kaupþing executives jailed

 

 

Six defendants in the Kaupþing market manipulation case, the biggest case of this type in Iceland’s history, have been handed prison sentences ranging from one year to four years and six months.
By fully financing share purchases with no other surety than the shares themselves, the bank was accused of giving a false and misleading impression of demand for Kaupþingi shares by means of deception and pretence.
Former Director of Kaupþing, Ingólfur Helgason, is to be jailed for four years and six months.
The other sentences are as follows:
  • Bjarki Diego, former Credit Manager: two years and six months
  • Ein­ar Pálmi Sig­munds­son, former Director of Proprietary Trading: two years (suspended)
  • Birn­ir Sær Björns­son and Pét­ur Krist­inn Guðmars­son, proprietary trading executives: eighteen months (suspended)
  • Sig­urður Ein­ars­son, former Kaupþing board chairman: one year
Hreiðar Már Sig­urðsson, former Director of the bank, received no further penalty, having previously been sentenced in the ‘Al-Thani affair’.
The two remaining defendants, Björk Þór­ar­ins­dótt­ir and Magnús­ Guðmunds­son­, were acquitted of all or most charges.

Notice that this is not an isolated case?

When you start enforcing some of those thousands of laws we have on the books and  some high level executives start serving lengthy jail sentences for the ongoing criminal enterprise activities that persist to this day after almost causing the entire worlds economy to crash, then maybe you can start worrying about how us white folk are such dangerous motherfuckers.
