Big banks have been caught in a massive scam to rig global interest rates, ripping off millions of people on their mortgages, student loans and more! We'd go to jail for this, but Barclays bank has only been fined, and just a fraction of their profits!

Why haven't banksters been put behind bars already? They gladly accepted government payouts to give themselves massive, undeserved, bonuses. Justice for all? - Not likely.

To quote Mario Puzo in "The Godfather" - "You can steal more with a briefcase than with a gun". Yes you would get more jail time for stealing a car than for ripping off millions.

The easiest way to steal money is to own a bank?

Signed~Thank-you Cal. "Thanks for calling on the EU to put bankers behind bars"

With stipulation that they ALL be put on public service work release programs under maximum supervision restoring natural habitats, national infrastructures, execute Public Service Campaigns to educate international populations on healthcare, education, housing and all other necessary societal construct topics, and successfully implement this incarceration model internationally. . .beginning in the US of A.

[and will not reside in minimum security comfort pens unless they fund and build equal facilities for for other incarcerated persons and diversion rehab programs]

Now that ought to challenge their little skill sets.

Fair is fair. A lower level employee in any of these banks who committed a crime would receive jail time for it, why on earth should executives be exempted from criminal penalties for criminal activities. NOT punishing them only continues to prove to the rest of the world that money can protect you from anything, that there are separate rules for rich and poor - which of course is true, but which should not be. What better deterrent (which is what confinement is supposed to be for other classes) to financial crime than incarceration? They've already proven they can't be trusted to walk freely among the law abiding without doing harm to us, why should they be treated any differently than any other criminal? My answer is they shouldn't be.

I wouldn't have any illusions about it that they will go to a very different kind of prison with a very different prison experience than any of us would.

Close to 686,000 signatures when I signed. Good --but a long way to go to reach 1,000,000. I'd LOVE to see the bankers behind bars. Let's face it, they put a lot of people out in the street. Even though they'd lose their freedom, at least they'd have a bed, a toilet, and three square meals a day. That's more than they left a lot of their customers with.

Thanks for posting this petition, Cal, which I obviously missed --and thank you, Dandelion, for the forward!

They caused so much harm to so many people that they don't deserve to be riding in limousines and living in mansions. They literally stole millions of homes from millions of people, which destroyed their credit so that they cannot even purchase another one, or rent an apartment, or get a job. Let those criminals pay and pay all they have to the customers they defrauded out of everything; then send the banksters to prison where they belong. There should be room at Gitmo for them.

Avaaz petition signed.

Bankers and those associated with them need to go to prison.
Their assets should be taken up and given away to those who need them.

Ty, Cal.

N&S They should have been in jail a LONG LONG time ago. Let them sit in prison and be someones bitches for a while. IF and when released, I bet they will change their tune. but letting them pay their way out of things, with stolen money no less, only gives them the high to continue doing it. But then again LOOK who they are paying off. What happened with the wall street scandal..what happened with that 'big' investigation that went no where...GREED TRUMPS EVERYTHING ANYMORE. disgusting
