“Education vs. incarceration - interesting dynamic. Perhaps the more educated people become, the more opportunities they'll have, the less likely they'll be involved in a crime? Well except, of course for bankers ;-)”

“A big thank you to all of the officers that managed this investigation. I can't imagine what they had to look at/watch in order to find these people. There are some images I am very grateful that I'll never have to see. Even thinking about what these children had to endure is hard enough for me.”

“Sorry to be picky here, but she wasn't actually acquitted. She was found guilty, the conviction was overturned but no verdict of "not guilty" or "acquitted" was ever entered. This is simply the next step in the Italian justice system.”

xmaskarol on Nov 2, 2013 at 11:37:14

“right, now i get it, her conviction was overturned by italy's highest court. well if your conviction is 'overturned' what does that mean. does it mean you were never convicted? if you were never convicted, what does that mean? to me it means you are free to go, and go she did.”

“I'm not sure how that makes a difference. When you look at Canada, the disparity in geography, climates, people and the sheer size of the country should have a major negative impact, but it doesn't. These countries manage well through a variety of tools and expectations that would translate regardless of size. The expectations are that they think of themselves as part of something not an exception to it. No one - not even the big banks - are above the laws, social or legal. Not to sugar-coat things because they all have their challenges with government and a changing world.but a shared sense of belonging to something bigger than you is key, I think.”

“Our banks weren't either before the politicians, in their infinite wisdom.revoked Glass Steagall and deregulated them. That one act led to the housing crisis, bank fraud, etc. It was a huge mistake and helped put the economy in the tank, which is where we are today.”

“By George, I think you've got it! Americans are never going to get to that point because we are so conditioned to seeing one another as the enemy due to differences in race, religion and ethnicity. That sense of community that exists in other countries will be hard to develop here. The American credo is,"I've got mine, you get yours".”

“That and we (in Canada) regulate banking. The scams they've been running in the States and the fact that they still haven't paid for their crimes, is just a head-scratcher to me.

“Yes and no. If you are in the public eye, there's a certain amount of press that's simply part of the job, including the occasional personal photos. However over this last decade or two it seems that it's become obsessive to hunt these people with long lenses and stalking behaviors, looking as hard as possible for something not "right" and I don't care how much they put themselves out there, that's just wrong.”

“Yes, it is  preference. Like I said before, there are lots of good looking girls under 18 but I don't have sex with them.  It's a choice. The only thing that is a choice that is protected under the constitution is religion and that is because it is an engrained part of any culture. ”
