The Internet is awash with comments crying foul at this. Don't they understand that Richard is a criminal - he is a convicted Misdemeanorian for Christ's sake! We can't allow people convicted of misdemeanors to handle our money! Imagine if you let any Tom, Dick, or Harry who had received a parking ticket to be responsible for giving you correct change at the Teller Counter - it could result in absolute chaos! Sure Eggers is an old man who probably will only get $150 a month in Social Security to pay all of his bills, but that isn't Wells Fargo's problem. If Eggers hadn't stolen from this laundry mat when he was a child, he would still be gainfully employed in a minimum wage job. We all know that misdemeanors stick with you for your entire life, he should have known that his crime would come back to haunt him over and over.
Don't you realize that those executives aren't criminals? It was Freddie Mac that ripped off millions of American taxpayers, not then CEO Richard Syron! Syron and the rest of Freddie Mac's Board of Directors chastised the company loudly for the decisions it made before they collected the millions in bonuses that they were entitled to. We have to remember that corporations are now legally individuals and therefore the people running them cannot be held responsible for the corporations actions. It's like when a parent has to take their shoplifting child back to apologize - the parent isn't liable to pay for anything!
That's why instead of firing the high-level executives, we should just fire the corporations! Because they are individuals - who by law committed crimes involving monetary transactions and thereby cannot work in the banking industry anymore!
