"People know that if they rob a bank they will go to jail," Kaufman said. "Bankers should know that if they rob people they will go to jail too." Can we hear an amen on that? Not yet.

It is way past time these people be held accountable for their actions. They are thugs! Good post Judy.

I find it a horrible indictment of society that criminals in this sector of society seem to be beyond the reach of the law.

This is only the beginning I I am waiting to see some other companies punished !! I guess the big boys have had to give up their bonuses to pay thie tab. It was ridiculous that during the recession that these moguls ,continued to receive their astronomical bonuses.. At a time when many Americans where losing so much, these few continued to reward themselves. If it weren't so sad it would be ridiculously .humourous. !!

"Bankers should know that if they rob people they will go to jail too"

How about JP Morgan's controlling investor-Rockefeller?

Noted. Thanks, Judy.
Well, it hasn't happened yet. While I continue to hope for the change I voted for, I will also continue to sign petitions and send letters asking to re-instate Glass-Steagall, as well as prosecute the banksters. The tangled web they wove, and continue to weave, has been extremely painful financially to many. These banksters gamed the system, profited from it, and caused millions to lose homes, jobs & pensions. They should lose the same.

If Holder can't figure out who is responsible, then he should throw all of them to the wolves and at least 20 years in jail. You can be assured the guilty will be found out. You know bells ring when all are published for the crimes of a few. Maybe we should put Holder in there as well for being stupid.

We the people need to demand that criminal charges are charged and these people aren't above the law for crimes committed. Congress does listen sometimes.

Thanks for so many good comments, everyone. Truly, a bunch of criminals are running the world. It is very rare to see the rich get locked up, but I have some hope. The more people clamor for justice, the better
