Investors go mad

June 24, 2009

The global financial meltdown apparently has prompted some German investors to take justice into their own hands.

If the press reports are true, it appears a group of investors allegedly kidnapped and tortured a financial advisor who lost them a boatload of money. Now revenege is never the way to go, especially when there are authorities to take care of this sort of thing.

We can only hope this sad story is more of an abberation than the start of a disturing trend. After all, it took awhile, but the authorities did finally catch-up to Bernie Madoff and R. Allen Stanford.
