If we arrest all the criminals, then who will be left to stop the crime?

No, it doesn’t make a lot of sense. From the LA Times via The Angry Liberal:

An even bigger problem, they added, was that financial products employees who are denied payments could quit and that AIG’s losses — the insurer took the deepest bath in red ink in American history last quarter, losing $61.7 billion — could spiral enormously if the only people who understand the company’s convoluted dealings are not around to “unwind” the damage they have caused.

Really? If we don’t give them their big fat bonuses, the staff at AIG, who literally are responsible for causing its bankruptcy, might flee to AIG’s competitors. Oh to be a fly on the wall of that job interview:

INTERVIEWER: Previous employer?


INTERVIEWER: What did you do there?

JOB APPLICANT: Pushed them into bankruptcy.
