  • Justice?

    Am I missing something? Weiss' punishment is to spend less than three years in jail and pay back just over $10m? For a crime that made him $210m? If the average man in the street were offered two and half years in a low security jail in exchange for $200m, a lot of them would take it gladly. Weiss has gotten off ridiculously easy.

  • Weiss' punishment

    Whether its with racketeers, drug dealers or crooked lawyers, the emphasis should always be on the guilty party to prove that any wealth wasn't the proceeds of his or her crime rather than on the authorities to prove that it was.

    Weiss should have most of his wealth seized and the onus should be on him to get it back, not the other way round.
