Dennis Kozlowski as we've always wanted to see him...

The Smoking Gun website has a fascinating archive of mugshots. One of the newest additions to the album is Dennis Kozlowski reporting for prison duty.

He's in the maximum security Downstate Correctional Facility north of Manhattan, although the term "maximum security" apparently has nothing to do with how well he feels when he's sleeping at night.

Mark Swartz, Tyco's former CFO, is in the same prison. (No word on whether these two have been able to accumulate any "venture capital" for their new "entrepreneurial careers".) One military prison benefit is that new recruits inmates get a free haircut. This apparently was of no concern to Kozlowski but it sure made a difference to Swartz's appearance.

He looks kind-of like Uncle Fester from the Adam's Family TV show.

Where's the light bulb ?

Do you people actually think this is funny? If so, my opinion of humanity in general needs to be revised downward. There
is not much room left to adjust lower.

Yes!! A rich crook got nabbed, instead of some poor, harmless, dope smoker...

As the song goes... "A man with a briefcase can steal more money than any man with a gun..."

Adjust away!! 8)

Just another defeated hero of yours. Don't be sad
He is another person who has successfully ERd by manipulating the government to take care of all his necessary needs. He's got no more worries about food, accomodation, sex and health insurance.

Damn, some people are just too smart.

Re: Dennis Kozlowski as we've always wanted to see him...

Our hero, John Galt. Always ready to champion the oppressors and manipulative crooks. All in the name of some bogus fantasy called "free trade." How about "Fair trade", JG?

By the way, how many days til you collect your socialist security?

You neocons are all the same. Government stinks, until you can start sucking off the hind tit yourself.

D@mn bleeding heart neo-cons. They've never seen a corrupt, wealthy elitist they didn't want to give money too -- even if it requires them to look the other way while they break laws and rob from stockholders.

Now there's a set of ethical principles that really raise your veiw of mankind.

JG,

It's not about being funny. No one thinks it's funny, just that he got what he deserved.

I just sold my TYCO stock and the only good news is that I have a tax loss. It's like someone robbing you but not with a gun, and we all know how you feel about guns.

Hey, speak for yourself! I would've posted this under "Funny Joke Thursday" but I didn't want to hijack that most excellent thread with this type of commentary.

Kozlowski was laughing pretty hard about that shower curtain. I bet he'd love to have ANY shower curtain or bathroom decor now...

I was "speaking for myself". Exulting in other's misfortune is unseemly at best.
With all of my flaws, I try hard not to do it (except for liberals, leftists, PC types,
etc). Corporate "crooks" mostly get a pass from me. In keeping with my new
policy (Never complain, Never explain), I will not expand on this as it would morph into an essay.

Re: Dennis Kozlowski as we've always wanted to see him...

JG, I cannot agree.* These hotshots need a little loving, administered in the slammer, by a guy with large arms.* The greed got to their head, now something else needs to get to it.* I mean, their salary and perks are high enough.* Why rip off the workers and the investors?* I hate them because, in comparison, they make politicians look good. Like they say on the street, "Don't do the crime, if you can't do the time." Maybe he could use one of those curtains for privacy while muscleman decides on foreplay.*

We'll agree to disagree then. A disclaimer. Some of these people
are guilty as sin. However, if you are at the top of the corporate
food chain, there are a million ways to get in trouble even if you are saint-like in your conduct. Anyway, I have no respect for authority and this includes
law enforcement/judiciary. Can't even watch COPS on TV as I have
too much empathy
for the perps and think the cops are grandstanding
for the camera. On a personal level, I have been treated very
unfairly by the "system" several times. "Justice" is a big crapshoot at best (ask Martha Stewart).
Not only that, as more laws are passed, eventually we will all be criminals and subject to punishment. I see no reduction in this.
The trend is relentless.

Hey JG,

First, COPS is a grandstanding show...

Second, as one supreme court justice said (Burger) something like.... we dispense law not justice... I can not find the quote I am looking for... we are a nation of laws and not a nation of justice.. a big difference if you think about it for awhile

Marth Stewart was quilty of what she was charged... she lied when asked questions when she should have either shut up or told the truth.. it is not a defense to say that I lied about something that has now been determined not to be a crime so my lie is not a crime.. this might get some in the White House and I think it should...

It is still very hard to put a CEO in jail for something that somebody down in the company did if he had not involvement in the action... usually the company pays a fine and they go on their merry way... the very few who have had convictions have thier 'fingerprints' all over the 'crime'..

I am happy that he was convicted. And there are many Enron, Worldcom etc. that should be in jail...
