Jail the bankers, too

You reported of five big banks found guilty of rate-rigging will pay almost $9 billion in penalties. This is great, however, why not indict the top executives at these banks for millions in penalties out of their own pockets and, perhaps, put some in jail? Jail time will make sure that in the future, this practice will not happen again.

The Justice Department needs to go after the leaders and not just the bank stockholders who are paying the bill.
