Speaking Of Thieves...

From Reuters, just a few hours ago:
Dennis Kozlowski and Mark Swartz, former top Tyco International Ltd. executives who were found guilty of stealing more than $150 million from the company, were each sentenced on Monday to 8-1/3 to 25 years in prison.
Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Michael Obus also ordered the men to pay restitution to the company of around $134 million combined. Kozlowski was also fined $70 million and Swartz was fined $35 million by the state...

Um. I'm sorry, but doesn't that mean they pocketed a minimum of $16 million dollars between them, for stealing? =|

[shaking head]

What a joke. *sigh*

The good news, though?

They were taken to a downtown Manhattan detention center known as "the Tombs" before their expected transfer in a few days to Riker's Island, a New York City jail facility where their fellow inmates will include violent offenders like rapists and murderers.

Let the salad tossing begin.
