Ok, post #6 – if President Bush (jr) really wanted to get tough on corporate crime, forget about doubling the trifling fines and country-club jail terms that usually get cut down to “time served” or commuted altogether. How about charging the CEO, CFO and involved members of the board of companies guilty of fraud and “funny” accounting under RICO? Then, you could forget about fines and go straight for the jugular and seize their personal assets. That would be the ultimate “fine”. Reduce them to the state they reduced their shareholders and employees to. Yeah (insert righteous indignation here)!!
