No one said 2 wrongs make a right mate, ... that argument is really irrelevant BF, and frankly I'm surprised at the lameness of it from you.
I agree they should be made to pay it back, but they can do it from jail, on supervised work gangs, where they actually have to do real & actual work, not sitting on their fat pimply privileged arses scheming about a new way to make shitloads at the expense of others.
Sorry mate, if there's no real deterrent, it would become epidemic.
Or more epidemic than it already is ...
No sure what you mean about two wrongs etc.
In my view jail is pointless. All a victim gets out of it is perhaps a sense of security that a violent perpetrator cannot do them more harm. I would have no tolerance for any violent crime and execute most offenders.
In these white collar crimes, people lose financially and never get compensation, as the perpetrator is taken out of any mainstream place to earn anything. And if you think they can makes worthwhile income legally in jail then you are mistaken.
Take their belongings, put a big tattoo on their forehead, but give them a productive chance to atone and compensate victims. Never can do this in jail.
