They didn't have enough money to keep him in prison.

I don't think it is the problem with Big Banks. I think it is more of problem of regulation (bring back Glass-Steagall!) and the lack of laws to break the bankers. Literally.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Also, I say they should put that guy back in general population.
If it helps the general population to lynch the bastard on the spot, I'd agree to that.

Such sub-human piece of trash really doesn't deserve any form of compassion considering he already got one warning.

t is a bad day to have your money deposited in a bank in the Mediterranean island nation of Cyprus. And it may just mean some bad days ahead for the rest of us. Early Saturday, the nation reached an agreement with international lenders for bailout help. Part of the agreement: Bank depositors with more than 100,000 euros ($131,000) in their accounts will take a 9.9 percent haircut. Even those with less in savings will see their accounts reduced by 6.75 percent. That’s right: Anyone with money in a Cypriot bank will have significantly less money when the banks open for business Tuesday than they did on Friday. Cypriots have reacted with this perfectly rational reaction: lining up at ATM machines to try to get as much money out in the form of cash before the money they have in their accounts is reduced.

Yeah, people take it for-granted but deposits at the bank, depending on the account and the country are only insured by government agencies up to a cap. The FDIC for example is capped at $250,000 per person per account type. I think the limit in Canada is even lower at $100,000.

I hope you're not serious about this. What this guy did just showed that he has no respect for human life when he killed that woman in the carjacking BEFORE raping the little girl; having internet or not doesn't make a difference.

He was a lost cause already and the only regret is that no one thought of injecting that tracker so deep within him as a safety.

More like "They are on the verge of rioting."

In other countries where the people suspect the government is about to do this to
them, there may be a run on the banks.

the same thing that happens to every region where there is high disparity in wealthy, up-heaving of old culture forces, quick changes in culture norms and high male to female ratio in-balances.

Ours is only S$50,000. You guys have it great in Canada and USA.

In that case he should have never walked around freely in the first place.
But they didn't know this before hand.
All they knew was, that he was potentially dangerous because of his sexual defects.

And how you think the tracker would have prevented the stabbing is beyond me. He got caught pretty fast anyway. Only then it was too late.
Trackers, just as other surveillance, like cameras and such, don't prevent crimes if the people who commit the crimes don't care about consequences.
They may only help to solve the crime after it happened.

Exception would be the bomb-rigged tracker of course...

In this case, it took many hours before they noticed something was wrong, when the monitor noticed that the tracker has not moved in a long time. Whereas if the tracker was still on him, not only would they noticed immediately that he left his home, they would know exactly where he was at all times, requiring little time to take him down, which, you know, is the whole point of the tracker in the first place.
