executives in companies across america are out of control. we the taxpayers end up bailing them out. so its abiut time these assholes take a hit. former tyco execs dennis kozlowski and mark swartz were both given 8 1/3 to 25 year sentences yesterday for the rape of that company. they were also ordered to pay a total of 134 million in restitution to tyco international ltd. the judge also fined kozlowski 70 million and swartz 35 million. now i know that all you bleeding heart big business republicans are going to say this is wrong. real criminals get lesser sentences. well too bad. these men affect thousands of people worldwide. they screw up the company costing people their jobs and in some cases their pensions (see enron). they would be given worse penalties if it were up to me. these two tyco asswipes were throwing lavish parties and living in these luxury homes on the company tab. one guy had a $6000 shower curtain in his $31 million fifth avenue apartment. i'm glad his wife was crying when they hauled his ass out of the courtroom in handcuffs. they should take the apartment now and toss her privleged ass out in the street right now. this is going good now that the guys from enron, worldcom and adelphia communications got stiff sentences also. i'm all for that. throw these bastards in jail until they pay back all the money they stole. remember these sentences werent for making a bad decision that cost the company money these are for guys who used the companies as petty cash. they deserve what they get.
this story makes my tuesday better, i hope it does for you too.
