Banksters who commit financial fraud should receive corporal punishment in a public spectacle format. A really hard caning on bare buttocks would illict cheers from thousands of justice seeking onlookers. When it comes to dissatisfaction about lenient corporate sentencing, the public is to blame for not articulating what they believe to be a proper response to economic fraud and collusion on a global basis.

People who work for banks and are caught commiting fraud should go to jail for a long time and should be banned from working in finance on any level doing anything at all.

The worst offenders should be caned by martial arts experts on bare buttocks during the halftime of the Superbowl. People would love it. Talk about ratings. The bigger the fish, the better.

I would watch the Superbowl for a change if they did that.

You are a softy, Matt. Boiling in Oil (Vatican style), Crucifixion and Burning at the Stake are more appropriate.

Aren't lefties supposed to be the compassionate ones? You two may get kicked out of the progressive cult members club.

I think I prefer the torture cone like the one in the Torture Museum of Amsterdam.

A bankster will be seated naked on a very large and sharp cone, while heavy bags of sand are placed on his/her shoulders and the crowd will be allowed to throw pre-approved projectiles.
