Since half the country's Muslims can be found to be involved in embezzlement, fraud, bribery, stealing, cheating and much more you cannot put everyone in jail. Second jailing is the most expensive way to get little or no return. You actually end up creating bad people worse. The process of proper rehabilitation, public apology and other publicly humiliating methods will be more productive.

if you get caught, give back post dated cheques while the money is generates interest in bank.

The accused are making a fool of us.By returning the money has he absolved himself of the crime? Should we pity criminals like these? An example has to ma

I say, arrest the MOFO, and sentence him to a few years with hard labor.

On the other hand, do as the Chinese do... shoot the people who defraud and steal public money....(Wishful thinking)
