I thought you read the news. The police here go to foreign countries to get criminals. They are the best. People never learn. Do not commit crimes here.

He knows the cops here will get him, unlike some people who never catch on to that for some reason.

No, this is not about "poor people getting screwed by the system", no matter how you try to spin it.
You don't see the distinction between fudging the books in private as opposed to waving a gun in someone's face, threatening them with bodily harm/death (which is the definition of assault) and where there is often battery as well? And then the police chase afterwards? White collar criminals are every bit as guilty for the theft, but there is no threat of violence and of course no chance of anyone getting "accidentally" shot and/or killed. This is why "burglary" is not classified as a violent crime, whereas "(armed) robbery" is.

Will the interest rate now go up on Mr. Brahe's Chase credit cards?

Most banks don't fund and staff their compliance and security departments adequately, because those departments don't make money for the banks. Given the current economic crisis in the financial and banking industry, most banks will probably cut back further in this area, which means we'll be seeing a lot more of these stories in the future.

Just curious, but what do you see as the difference between federal and state prison, and why do you care if something is charged as a state or federal offesnse?

funny how they electronically are on top of an overdraft with their $35 penalty fee instantly (I swear they have some software that can smell it coming) but don't notice when money is missing from these "low traffic" accounts he stole from. And what kind of person doesn't notice cash missing from their account IMMEDIATELY?

Harry: The post I wrote was intended as irony. The point I was making, "Steal $20, go away for twten to twenty. Steal millions, go away for six months." Technically, robbery is theft with threat of violence. Burglary, by common law definition, is entry of a dwelling at night. The Chase exec is involved in theft, as were the Enron execs, for example. I knew that; look up "irony."

Here's a word of advice for you: if you're going to steal a million dollars, it's probably a smart idea to leave the country!

He opened my savings account at that branch. Glad I had all my money transferred out in 2006 to AZ.

Thought he was a nice guy but he is a dirtbag.
