They take away our jobs and then belt us in the mouth when we make a mistake. Even the UIA is coming down hard for little things. Take our jobs then put us in jail for not wanting to starve to death. It's still wrong, but holy cow, the tarred and feathing on top of is just gloating over someone elses misfortune... this state is really bad....

She should be fully to blame!! She HAD A JOB, it was her own choice to take the money!
She screwed so much of life up, it is just crazy!!
Creditors calling several times a day, money taken from MY family for needs, just so she could have luxuries!!!!!!!!!! So wrong!!!
I can't believe someone could do this and still have a conscience!!!
She deserves EVERYTHING and probably more of what she gets!

There are a lot of people struggling in Michigan. It does not give you the right to steal from others who struggle to make ends meet. She deserves to be punished severely. Stealing is never OK.

Let me change that around to my situation: "Companies have workers right here in Michigan, it's their own choice to outsource! They screwed so much of our economy up it's just crazy!!
Creditors calling several times a day, jobs taken from MY state for needs, just so they can save a buck!!!!!!! So wrong!!!
I can't believe someone could do this and still have a conscience!!!
.....we don't deserve this....

What's the difference between a person stealing money or a company outsourcing to save money..... nothing except one is illegal and the other is not..... yet.

One of those seldom heard of scammers. I am surprised she even got any jail time. Good to see people are getting their money back. Its probably going to take a while for others.

If you had read the whole article, she was charged on a count of embezzling MORE THAN $20,000. It was in the millions she's ordered to pay back. Here's a quote:
"After pleading no contest to one count of conspiracy to operate a criminal enterprise and embezzling more than $20,000, Nichole "Misty" Athey, 38, was sentenced to from five to 20 years in prison and ordered to pay millions of dollars of restitution"

I am not trying to condone what she did, I just hate the way people get mad at criminals. Heck, we are all guilty of something, it just seems hypocrytical sometimes.... from a sociological standpoint...
Yes what she did is wrong, if it happened to me I would be mad, I had my car broken into and I wanted to hunt the person down and spit in his eye, but when you see a group of people in an uproar, it's almost evil and the sound of their screams is unbearable.
I don't want to carry the weight or the knowledge of how bad you feel because you were wronged.... eveyone hates a whiner and a "finger pointer" no matter how justified it is. Our Businesses in Michigan could give a rats behind about how we feel about outsourcing and I know everyone who has a job is sick and tired of the unemployed whining and hollering about how screwed up this state is! To me there is no difference between a crminal stealing money and businesses outsourcing.... in defense of that other post by Michigan does suck". The money still flies out the window just in a different way. Why a business would not want to support their own community is beyond my comprehension. I can see it now, a shiny tall corporate building surrounded by run down dirty houses and unemployed people, just like in that 2nd episode of Back to the Future when Biff made his own empire and took all the money.
This state sucks so bad I can already see it's future of despair. Like my whining?? Didn't think so...... just remember, "We don't vote for people who outsource!"
