What names are used when a character or human being conspires to and does commit a crime against anyone? That anyone can be called a person, an established business both for profit or non-profit designation or a government or…When the crime is small, one is called a thief.
When the crime is to steal large amount of money, drugs or fraud it is usually stolen, misappropriated, robbery or a strong armed/weapons involvement becomes a dangerous sport.
When a person(s) takes a large sum of money from investing folks the crime is usually thought of and called white-collar; (You know boys or girls will be boys or girls). The white-collar crime against investors (call these people, trusting-loyal-stupid-congregations-greedy or ignorant) of those crime(s) that have destroyed their financial present and their financial future. Financial murder!
If a horse is taken from a person that must have that horse for help in plowing her/his fields to ultimately yield crops, food, leading to the prevention of starvation and to be used in a bartered society for simple items gained and traded up or down then a capital crime is punished by the hanging of this horse thief (Financial Murderer).
The point of this post: Financial Murder is the abundant crime of choice perpetrated by bankers, financial managers, politicians, warlords, accountants and any other name for the money counters in the temples, anywhere and at anytime. Besides, the destruction of millions of livelihoods including retirement and health benefits, the crime is called stealing. We know the names or type of creatures/murderers.
Financial murder must become a capital offense. Due process is important. Appeals are proper. This crime, however, must be severely punished. Lions and Tigers and Bears…oh my.
May the Bulls-of-Wall Street run everywhere without fences and without honest cowboys or…Wow! Honest regulators…oops–and how about some honest regulations this time and at this moment? The truth of real Capitalism is a lie? Try Socialism? The we, of this nation and our form of Socialism may already be good or already just a bastard child of what we consider Present Capitalism.
And! Has Evil gone wild?
