Offtopicland. This still isn't the place to discuss politics, religion, or hot-button social issues, however.

Apologies in advance

Not a football nor OSU topic. But recently heard a story on a bank, HSBC. This multi billion organization not took money from Mexican drug lords. But also laundered it for them. Yes, a major bank laundering. When the Mexicans found that the windows for the drive thru weren't friendly to drop off, the bank rebuilt the wall with lower deposit holes. 

What was the punishment when US found out about this? About 0.02% of HSBC annual revenue. 

Really? I got busted with a joint back in 99, and it cost more than that. Hate to think bout poor kid with x, spending life in prison while these jerkoffs have no punishment. 

Sorry, just doesn't make sense.

Apology noted. You're going to need it for the off-topic, nonsensical shitstorm you're creating.

This should be in the "anything else" forum.

You must still be high from that joint in 1999...

"(Reuters) - HSBC Holdings Plc agreed to pay a record $1.92 billion in fines to U.S. authorities for allowing itself to be used to launder a river of drug money flowing out of Mexico and other banking lapses.

Mexico's Sinaloa cartel and Colombia's Norte del Valle cartel between them laundered $881 million through HSBC and a Mexican unit, the U.S. Justice Department said on Tuesday."

I don't blame you for being pissed about a $1.92 BILLION tab for getting busted with a joint.

Which ends up being closer to 2% than .02% of revenue. And yes revenue not profit.

When it comes to banks, all revenue is profit.

Gone ham, be back soon...

To bad money puts you above jail time. Somebody should be in prison.
