Interesting that the more dramatic shooting incidents in EPA & east Menlo have drawn so many more comments than this equally spectacular but non-violent crime. What have the ramifications been to the victims of this crime? All of us taxpayers paying for the investigation & prosecution of those involved here...& so much money involved.

white collar crime charges will continue to be an acceptable risk for some until the courts start treating these low lifes like any other criminal. Start giving them long prison sentances (general population in prisons other than low risk federal country club type) and then they may start thinking twice before ripping off companies, stock holders, pension funds, etc etc.
These thugs in designer suits ruin peoples lives for good many times when companies and industries crash and they rarely get charged let alone convicted and sent to prisons where other theives are sent to.
Then when they do get out after a few short years at a low risk fed facility they go on lecture tours, write books and teach in colleges (Milken)
In their wake they leave many many lives ruined and peoples life earnings wiped out often times.

I completely agree. Put Barney Frank in the pen, doing hard time.
