Guest Post: Poor Thieves Go To Jail, Rich Thieves Don’t

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by John Aziz of Azizonomics,

This is more surreal than Barack “I’ll Bomb Ya” Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize.

From the Mail:

A bank clerk who dreamed of becoming a model stole £46,000 from the tills — and spent it on plastic surgery and shopping sprees.

 

Rachael Claire Martin, 24, used the cash to fund a boob job, dental work and liposuction, as well as hair extensions and nights out.

 

She took thousands at a time from her Barclays branch in Liskeard, Cornwall, in an eight-week period.

 

Martin initially denied 25 counts of theft in 2010.

 

But on what should have been the first day of a week-long trial, she admitted a single charge of theft covering the full amount of £46,000.

Steal thousands from a bank? You face criminal charges, a trial and jail time.

When that same bank manipulates a $600 trillion market by rigging the LIBOR rate for profit? No criminal charges, no trial, no jail time.

In a better world people who rob a company engaged in a manipulative criminal enterprise like LIBOR-rigging would not face criminal charges. There is a case that this girl should be treated as a hero. In stealing the money, she was just getting back a tiny fraction of the money that Barclays stole by rigging LIBOR. And by spending the money at least she gave the money back to the public instead of stashing it away in the Cayman Islands.

I hope she achieves her dream of becoming a model. And I hope the LIBOR-riggers spend a very long time in jail — but in reality there’s not much chance of that.

she looks like a shallow Hobbit with trout lips packing plastic=dumbsex.

Do you also like those plastic blow-up orifice dolls?

Thanks Bananamerican. She makes me sad. She does not have model potential, and honestly that is okay. 

At least she had reasoning that most of us could understand. In this culture, women are told that is where their power is. It looked like a way to better things.

What was Lloyd and Jamie's excuse? They weren't making enough money? They did not have enough power? Jail is too good for them.

like Flacon quoted above "A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive ...control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude.”

That goes to the sex scam perpetrated on american little girls for the last 15 years...

"Be like Brittany, be like Christina! Be a whore. It's not degrading! Be an Orifice! It's Empowering™!!

That dumb English girl STOLE to participate in her own Objectification and to fullfill another debased global Marketing con. The Empowered Whore™

Those "boobs" are as emblematic of our Empty bullshit times as Tats and the last 12 years of amerikan political/financial "leadership"

We are so numbed to our own existence that we reach out for the "Transgressive™" to feel SOMETHING....to feel ANYTHING

Get into the topic of sex and gender roles buddy and you are entering a house of mirrors, where somebody is going to be there at every turn waiting for you and it's going to end with you showing your insecurities to all.

Better to stick with comments re: $ or macro-trends, O-dog.  No one needs to hear about your sexual hangups.  LOL

As in fishing, the kind of bait you use will help determine the kind of fish you catch.  Further, some fish (in particular, the bottom feeders) will hit on anything.  Pathetic really.   She is the female embodiment of Jamie Dimon.

At least the money she stole went back into the community.

Thems some hooters. She should have put it in the mattress instead.

During the collapse there will be rewards for banksters. I guess there already is a reward for the one bankster from Iceland.

She did not steal it, she just borrowed a little bit of clients money to bolster her assets. Completely legal, you could just ask Corzine's lawyers.

Rehypothecation.  Borrowed some assets to leverage her assets. She was going to pay it back as soon as the modeling contract came in.

She is on a bench that you do bench presses on. Those look like bracelets, not cuffs, though I agree that her pose is suggestive of bondage.

What she forgot was the middle man. She needed to funnel the stolen money through an intermediary so that her hands were clean. Stealing directly from someone is certainly a crime. "Borrowing" hundreds of billions at less than .5% interest to plow into worthless equities, to pump the price up so you can unload the shares a few minutes later and keep the profit while repaying the loan in full, is just business as usual.

She should have immediately shot some porn and paid back the 46k pounds to the till before anyone knew it was gone. Then it would have been a loan. Any extra money above the 46k would be hers to keep. That is the way the stock market works. Poor girl, working for a bank she should have known better.

Also in the legalized theft department, what the fuck is going on with Nike. They report disaster earnings and the stock plummets, BTFD at the stock is up more than $10 in a week and a half. Did Nike's business have a miraculous turnaround in a couple weeks?

Bankrupt cities and millions of homes in shadow inventories mean REITs should trade through the roof. Massive economic slowdown in China means commodities should also hitch a rocket ride though the stratosphere. Building permits rising, while finished construction craters means homebuilder stocks should double in six months?

The lunacy is so expansive that every nuthouse on the planet wouldn't be able to contain it.
