Jail Wall Street Crooks

We want, and our country needs the indictment and prosecution of the Wall Street crooks who drove our economy off a cliff. Anything less makes a mockery of the Rule of Law and other democratic principles, and sets the stage for similar criminal behavior.

By contrast, China has been known to execute its economic criminals. Since I oppose the death penalty, I think a lengthy prison sentence would do for the Wall Street goons.

This counties citizens have been thieved royally by the likes of Political
figures to the guy next door. The atrocities of the World's Banker's,
Insurance Companies, Religious Organizations etc... have driven the most
prosperous into poverty notwithstanding the savy 1% that have managed to stay out of the fray.

Petition signed.

The people that were responsible for overseeing the stock market and related activities fell asleep, deliberately???,
at their jobs. Or just maybe they allowed this collapse to happen. I do wonder how much money they
made during this episode in the bush administration, 2000 - 2008.

There is a video in YouTube where there was a congressional hearing taking place and one Senator was blasting the SEC! Awesome video.
SEC Initiatives Under New Regulatory Reform Law
The SEC is responsible for implementing a series of regulatory initiatives required under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

The Dodd-Frank act is not very good and it is not strong; it is weak.

The economic collapse can happen again...

Yes, the people responsible for the economic collapse should be arrested and thrown into prison for life. Unfortunately, USA does not execute these kinds of criminals like china does.

Reinstate Glass Steagall.

Ty, Dandelion.

Thanks Jim, and I agree with you, the Dodd-Frank act is too weak, the collapse can happen again as nothing really has changed to prevent it from happening again. No one has been held responsible and made to pay for it, except all those who are suffering from job loss, home loss, career loss, retirement loss, medical loss, the loss of savings, their childrens college education. All the people that made little to nothing by the gambling of our economy, they are the ones who have paid, and their children will pay, and grandchildren will pay. Most certainly the Glass Steagall needs to be back on board.

As I have stated before, those on Wall Street and their supposed regulators, by intentionally committing acts that they knew could bankrupt the country, have committed acts that should be considered treasonous. They then should be charged with treason.

We've suffered through "the worst economic collapse since the Great Depression," yet the roles played by the people who caused it aren't significant enough to prosecute them? These criminals apparently have friends in high places. We have to hold them accountable NOW! We've already paid the price for their incompetence and greed. Now it's their turn.

Signed and noted. Thanks, Dandelion!

Cases are already being brought against BP--from more recent actions than Wall Street's. We must have the cases proceed before statutes of limitations run out

But i think it's going to take alot more than petitions to make this happen...anyone who is serious about having these criminals brought to justice needs to start writing letters, alot of them, making their representatives and senators know exactly how you feel...put the pressure on them to get this ball rolling.
And don't be afraid to to use the fact that you are a voter ad can take them out of their cushy little jobs...
unless they don't plan on running again that will get their attention. as will the fact that you bothered to write to them directly in the first place, and it can be the same letter 100 times, until you get a response.
Thanks Dandelion
