I know this coruption case in Iran has been there big story for the last year , or there abouts . But one can't help but admire how they may deal with this type of fraud .

Makes you wonder , how might the corporate world be here in the west if fraud at certain levels warranted the death penalty ?

Wonder how much government leaders in Iran have stashed away in off shore accounts.

if they had the death penalty in america for being a corrupt person on earth, the senate, whitehouse, wall street and 95% of the 1%er's would cease to exist.

it would be a major leap forward in american justice if they just had community service as a penalty.

If that was how fraud and corporate corruption would be handled it would be ...... FAIR for once. That would be a great change for this country !

Wait then we wouldn't have a government because everyone in government would be on the death penalty.

They have nothing to contribute to their community or society except greed. Theft of that magnitude should be considered treason, and a crime against their fellow countryen. I think america can learn a thing or two from others, instead we will probably just invade their country and destroy It
like we do to everything else.

Wait a minute everyone! I'm confused!

I thought the law for billionaire bankers was your choice of:

- pay a fee, admit no guilt, and then go your merry way, or

- don't pay a fee, admit no guilt, and attend a day-care spa for a few months.

But here's the thing....'the people' voted these people in office. I don't see them marching to Washington, with pitchforks and torches; like an angry mob. They just say: oh, these darn politicians. Y'all better start doing something, instead of complaining and making excuses for their iniquities. The rope is getting shorter and shorter! Oh wait, i get it....y'all waiting for JESUS to return...and make things all better, right?
What if JESUS is waiting for you to do something 1st. So, i guess we have a stalemate!

I'm glad we don't live back in the days of Moses. Otherwise, there would be piles of bloody rocks everywhere...is all i know!!!!

Well...:
It obviously hasn't been a deterrent there. Why do you think it might be a deterrent here in the West?

Actually , they had only 5 people compared to our how many ?

Perhaps the deterrent does work ?

For once I agree with Iran.

Financial crimes effect many many people per crime.

Think of how many went broke, lost homes, suicides, etc.

Hell yes they should be held accountable.

Why don't we have the same charge in the states?

"How long will you judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked?"

Surely there will be a day of reckoning for such persons.

Good Job Iran

Wonder if any of the western MSM outlets covers this story ? For some reason I highly doubt it .

No... That means they only have five on trial at this time.

We have capitol punishment in the United States for murder, yet people are murdered every day.

Criminals tend to not care about penalties until they are caught.

But you must admit , it is one hell of a way to make a point for such a crime ?

And when we take the mindset of such a blue chip criminal it's not entirely fair to equate there mindset to that of the average murderer . Such a deterrence may just work on these high leve fraud cases and if it doesn't , should we even caire ? Many would see it as justice served

Ya know I saw a Justice Leauge episode once where they fixed their "lawyer problem" by making the lawyer perish with his client if they lost. I feel theiving from the public in such a grandieur form warrants death for you to steal from so many for so much for that long and especially if your in a position of power it should be taken WAY more serious then it is for whose to say just how many lives you destroyed and I can't wait till the Elites get found guilty for being "Corrupt people on Earth", bcause we'll finally be free (p.s. should also be the name to their next documentary)...

If they are truly guilty of the crimes they committed, the 5 on trial apparently didn't get that "point" until they were caught. That punishment isn't new for such crimes in Iran.

See ya,
