“Theoretically, yes. They’re not exactly going to be in any money soon though.”

“Yeah, definitely. I definitely think they should.”

“I really don’t know. Maybe they should pay for their own jail time.”

“If they could afford to pay it probably wouldn’t accomplish much.”

Bailout bonus funds? Last I read, Goldman Sachs paid back their TARP loans, early. How is your understanding of general obligation bonds? Would you support the use of them, backed by full faith and credit of the city as an economic development tool? Do you think those types of policies are socialist in nature?

YES, but GOLDMAN SACHS executives receiving bailout bonus funds should also PAY BACK.

Pay back KU, and pay back the tax payers who had to prosecute the selfish, immoral dirt bags.

He must make restitution in full, add a fifth of the value to it, and give it all to the owner. Leviticus 6:5

After their lawyers are done representing them, there will be little left to return. That said restitution should be required.

they could pay back the money by working off the amounts. window washing the athletic facilities, toilet cleaning during games , there is plenty of that needed. then there is always cleaning the stadium after games and the fieldhouse as well. There can never be enough labor. And of course, some kind of uniform should be worn to identify them.' ushering the patrons to their seats as well.

that's a fair way to pay off the debts. I don't see how this is such a big deal to figure out.

And there would be 1099s issued each year for a partial amount of the total owed, so that they would pay income tax on what they took.

it is done quite frequently with debt write offs so it is legal

If someone robbed a bank of $1 million and got caught 2 days later. Would the police say, you get to keep the money ,but you must do 5 years time for the robbery and everything will be squared away and your sentance will be completed?

It was minus 18 on my deck this morning. The man said it was minus 27 in Bartlesville, OK, just down the road a piece. I looked to see what the humidity was at minus 18. There ain't one. Can I get some pancakes with my pork belly?

Of course. And as a season ticket holder, I will gladly supply them with a deposit slip to my checking account. Please pass the fried pork belly. Sounds good.

how much do they get paid in prison? it would be nice if they would have a few bucks sent to pay it off taken from their paycheck

Fried slided cured pork belly never tasted so good on a -14°F day.


autie 3 years, 2 months ago

Sure. At a low interest over time. Make it just like a student loan. It will only take 2 ro 3 hundred years to pay if off.

I'll have some of that fifth if you would be so kind as to share. Seems to me that paying back any money that has been stolen is usually part of the punishment in any theft case. Why would this be any different?
