HSBC laundromat

Postby Graham Adder » Jan 9th, 2013, 8:55 pm

I think of this as a social concern more than anything.
That's why.

So, I did a quick peruse of other forums and threads but did not see anyone talking about this autracity:

HSBC knowingly laundering huge stacks of pancake dough and ...and...and what?

They had to give up a piddle in a puddle.

It's absolutely ludicrous and an enormous insult to our judiciary systems.
These @#$%ers are the ones leading us down the road to hell and we allow it.
It makes me sick.
Here, we argue and bicker about petty things, yet over something with such gigantic implications we sit silent about.
Sometimes I just don't get people.

Its more than just banks and the judiciary system.... the whole system is corrupt. The drug dealers are just a small cog in a very big wheel.

I urge anyone brought up on criminal drug charges to cite this case in court.

Despite the fact that HSBC admitted to laundering billions of dollars for Colombian and Mexican drug cartels (among others) and violating a host of important banking laws (from the Bank Secrecy Act to the Trading With the Enemy Act), Breuer and his Justice Department elected not to pursue criminal prosecutions of the bank

Rich people have their own set of rules. I don't understand why we continue to tolerate it.

That and they own every media outlet and politician in North America, lol.



Sounds a lot like a conspiracy.

Not sure if there's any other option. Just the way it is...
