It’s not enough that the government imposes confiscatory taxes and funds all sorts of entitlement programs, in Germany a bank manager was taking money from the “rich” clients to give to the “poor”:
German banker admits transferring money from rich to help poorer clients
The 62-year-old branch head of one German bank was hailed as a hero after she confessed to transferring money from rich customers to help her poorer clients. Already, she has been dubbed “Die Robin Hood Bankerin”.
She was given a 22-month suspended sentence after moving more than €7.6m (£6.9m) in 117 transfers between 2003 and 2005. The court in Bonn was told that the employee, who has not been named, took no money for herself.
The judge referred to her stealing as “altruistic behavior”.
Here in the US we get the government to take our money and bailout the banks and financial firms because they are “too big to fail”.
That German judge would be impressed.
