Absolutely pathetic. What a disgusting display of immaturity that there is so much approval of physical violence here.


The law allows people to defend themselves when they are robbed at the point of a gun; It appears there will be no justice for people robbed at the stroke of a pen. People are frustrated. Get your panties unbunched.

Use the FOIA and find out where these poeple live, work, eat, chill-out and turn up and make your point made...alternatively, buy 1 share in their next corporate start-up and as a 'shareholder' demand to see the annual director's accounts and get them on the run that way...the legal/administrative paper-trail system CAN be used to the small-person's advantage!

...make it known throughout the corporate world, that even a CEO is a vulnrable flesh-and-blood human that hurts/bleeds/dies just like all of us 'little people', and that they can be held accountable for their greed and anti-public actions in many more ways than one

What a sad society we live in, when people have so bought into the MSM that they cheer like a mob when someone gets punched.


I don't see it quite this way, what I see is a large group of people who are very frustrated and angry at what seems to be criminal activity taking place, and basically not able to do anything about it.

The truth is if any of us *middle to lower income* folks tried to do the things taking place we would be in jail, but these folks get away with what seems to be criminal activity.

That is the situation, not "people buying into the MSM". Your statement could be taken further, if someone uses violence to protect their family, let's say in sitx, would you say they have bought into the MSM? Do you have any suggestions on how we should handle this? Nothing happening here, move on, go back to sleep folks it's all under control.

No my friend...... C.E.O. hunting is now open untill someone steps up and pays off this 700 Billion dollar tax burden we have all just been saddled with. And while were at it we might want to throw a cautioned word to the joksters here in D.C. who are sitting in the back room with a cigar and laughing with these C.E.O.'s and slapping each other on the back and glowing on how they just managed to pull off the greatest slight of hand trick with our tax money right out in the open public's eye. If you think for one minute that this wasn't an inside D.C. wallstreet job you have lost your flipping mind.

It's a classic case of how the laws of the land are stuffed. There is no justice. The laws are written for the rich, to protect the rich.

What they have done, whether it is legal or not, is completely immoral and wrong. If they have done it 'legally', then they're not criminals, are they?

I no longer believe in any contrived, human 'justice' system.

'Right' and 'wrong' are morals that we learn from early in our lives. Clearly, these CEOs never learnt that lesson. They deserve more than a punch in the face. Where's my damn pitchfork...

Not only do they get away with it, but they are monetarily rewarded for it and set up to screw us again by lending us back our own money at interest. The government should have just paid off the loans of the homeowners. That way the banks would still get the money on the defaulted loans, but the little guy would get to keep his home as well.

I don't know what crimes the man committed, if any. If he did, he should be processed through the legal system.

I don't support mob violence; that's what this is. I do know that many of you would not like it if someone were to walk up and coldcock your grandfather, wife, daughter, or mother.

We are a nation of laws, not thugs.

It is true. There are imperfections, to be sure. But it is the best system in the world, and will remain the best as long as men follow it and work to improve it.

A society or a people is measured by how they treat the least among them.

Yeah, take a look at how the average US citizen is being treated by the political/corporate/military elite.

People shooting themselves, due to their financial crisis. Need I type more?

You certainly don't need to type any more for my sake. We're in totally different worlds.

Maybe some of your frustration is due to the way things are in Oz. I can't see the point of you taking such interest in a US event.

LOL then our society is in the Shiite hole. The fact is the "mob" as you like to put it can take some much for so long. We have seen government put us in 11 trillion into debt, buy bad debt of banks using taxpayer funds so the banks can "clear their books", we have gone to war under false pretenses, not only paid but way OVER paid these defense contractors, had our liberties swiped via the patriot act, our economy is in shambles, many shareholders and main street citizens have lost everything because of thugs like this and your mad? When government doesnt defend the citizens the citizens are OBLIGATED to take action. Our government in collusion with big bank and big corp has ruined this country except for the top 1% who are living just fine right now. You call this guy a thug what do you call the politicians in Washington? Saints?

We're a nation run by thugs. The whole "law" idea only applies to people who cannot buy a get out of jail free card.

As you typically do, you're directing your anger at the wrong people. Your unconditional support for criminals who care none about you and your family is not only ignorant, it's sickening.

Once again, you are getting too emotional. I do not support criminals, but the rule of law. But it seems that *you* support violence, seeing how you think it is OK to physically assault someone because of a crime he has neither been charged with nor convicted of.

You should follow your signature. Don't be swayed by mob hysteria. Stand up for the rule of law.

"DAaaaaaaam!!! you just got knocked the **** out!" -friday

one of my buddies doesnt think this murdered CEO thing could happen in america


he's says cause hes lived in india he knows. he says they are unsophisticated and they would never kill a westerner if he were there.

but i told him that america is a different KIND of unsophisticated.

crazy times. nobody would have thought a ceo would get punched out back in the day..

just hope nobody gets organized and wants to really punish the powers that be, cause that would be taking things too far.

Wow, how can you know or assume that I am frustrated? That's a leap of faith that you're taking. By the way, do you know how things are here in Australia?



I can't see the point of you taking such interest in a US event.

It must be somewhat soothing, living in a blinkered world.

The flow-on effects of the US financial crisis have an impact upon Australian finances. In case you're not aware, the US crisis does not start and finish with the USA.

It pays to read what develops around the world and be informed, rather than have one's head in the sand - right?

a. Whatever you said

b. Same as you.

I'm not going to get into a pissing contest with another critic of America who lives far away.
