    not the best choice of people to steal from

    MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — Three men have been indicted for allegedly trying to steal $3 million from Austrian gunmaker Glock.
    The indictment handed down by an Atlanta-area grand jury Friday says the three men conspired from 2000 until early last year to steal the money.

    Jeffery Pombert, James Harper III and Jerry Chapman are charged with theft by taking and violation of a state racketeering law.

    The indictment says Harper worked as an outside legal counsel for Austrian-based Glock's U.S. headquarters in Smyrna, near Atlanta. It said the men transferred funds and assets from Glock to personal bank accounts they had set up.

    Harper and Pombert have been released from Cobb County jail on bond. Chapman was still in jail Tuesday.

    The company said Tuesday it has no comment.

    Why is it any worse than stealing from any other legitimate multinational corporation?

    I think it would be worse to steal from a non-legitimate organization that has lower ethics and morals - such as the Chinese Triad or Russian Mafia or any organized drug cartel.

    Because one get's you jail time and the other gets you and your family killed.

    So apparently prison isn't such a bad thing in the states. maybe we should follow Mexico's setup.

    Good Point !! Prison in the US doesn't seem like it's much of a deterrent any more. You hear comments like "I'm not scared of going to prison". You never hear that comment in Tijuana though...
