    While this settlement takes care of the criminal behavior, shareholders may not be too keen in understanding why executives at their banks put them in this position. It's a really bad position to be in for the executives and shareholders may be angry enough to file a class action lawsuit against the bank and its executives for compensation.

  • Yep, only 2 things these Banksters understand i.e. Money and Prison.
