Madoff just got 150 years jail for the biggest ponzi sceme ever..his wife aided and abetted yet looks like keeping her wealth...but if you pay cash..for a stolen car you lose your car and the cash

we have the famous case of alan bond...and his now wealthy wife..even now the children of michael jackson may not actually be his children, but joe jackson looks like he will be allowed to do a michael jackson to them...did he adopt them or buy them?

the thing is there is one law for the rich..thousands of other laws for everyone else..like the too rich to fail get bailouts..while the poor lose their houses..my question is where is the justice..[or is it just us]..or maybe ...lol...just me

It's just you.

It's best to stop worrying about the possibly illegal family affairs of strangers you've never met, and get on with your 'own' life. Believe me, that's good advice.

Hey OUG, Hiya Master.

It matters, Everything matters.

All of it matters.

The proceeds of crime should be removed from the criminal so no one around them can benefit from their crime either. Otherwise what is the point.

No, those kids shouldn't be with that couple if all that stuff is true.

As soon as everything matters to everyone, everyone will matter.

Might pop out for a smoke... that did my head in...

Dear OUG,

There's not the slightest evidence that criminal
behaviour is any more common at the lower level
of society than at any other. It seems, rather,
that people of different statuses have different
opportunities to commit various crimes.

The criminal poor are hardly in a position to embezzle
trust funds or manipulate the price of stocks, so they
resort to high-risk, low-yield crimes such as larceny
and burglary.

Whereas the criminal non-poor have no need to hold
up gas stations or snatch purses, so they resort to
low-risk, high yield crimes such as tax evasion,
toxic pollution, copyright infringement, stock
manipulation, price fixing, corruption of public
officials, embezzlement and fraud.

White-collar and corporate crime is generally
regarded with more tolerance than other forms of crime,
even though their economic impact is much greater.
As we know the greater ability of high-status people
to evade the full impact of the law is a fact of life.
Usually about 60% of people convicted of white-collar
crime serve no jail terms, and of those who are jailed,
the greater majority serve very little time in jail.

There's very little we can do about it.

Perhaps, the Courts' "relation back" power to reverse transactions should be changed from six months to six years.

Albeit, international money transfer make it hard. Even Hitler didn't invade Switzerland. The rich and power will have their secrets.
