Just because someone is a bigwig in the banking industry does not make them above the law. This kind of conduct with no fear of repercussions must be stopped. It is not fair and represents no logical form of justice. It is teaching people that they do not have to adhere to the law.
The bankers jailed in Ireland is a positive and necessary step to restore public trust in the banking system. These bank leaders can't be allowed to destroy the economy and then be paid bonuses while everyone else affected by their reckless business practices suffers the consequences. The bankers must be held accountable.
Yes, Ireland should be commended for jailing three bankers involved in the 2008 scandal because the country's administration declared a dedication to lawful enforcement. The 2008 scandal caused many citizens and business owners to lose money due to the bankers' unethical practices. Jail is a suitable consequence for their actions.
I think that Ireland is taking a step in the correct direction by jailing three bankers involved in the 2008 scandal. By jailing these bankers, Ireland is showing that no one is above the law. In American, we too often allow people with money or in a position of power to go without punishment or only receive a slap on the wrist.
