    Default The Banker Suicides

    June 12, 2016

    Following the Great Recession of 2008, and the world economy crashing, came a spate of regulation and scrutiny brought by federal regulators and the government on US and global financial institutions. From 2013 to 2014, more than 40 financial professionals committed suicide in the US, London and Hong Kong. Some people are now questioning the circumstances surrounding some of these deaths. We explore two of them in this series. Produced by Steven Greenstreet and Heather Hauswirth as part of Michael Gray's exclusive investigation.

    Wherever massive amounts of money is the thieves will gather. The thing about 2007- 2008 is most all those instruments which caused it are still in place. Hardly anyone involved with the core of the problem was prosecuted. Corporations involved were fined by various governments not indicted. Not being a NY Post subscriber this is the first I have heard of this and it is very interesting. But who would want to knock off these guys? It may not be governments could be some type of international money cartel or it could just be a coincidence. Kinda like the PA district attorney who initially investigated Penn St for the child abuse charges did not prosecute then goes missing and body never found.

    I can't watch that video at work, but many key executives have huge life insurance policies with their companies as the beneficiaries. When their is an insurable interest in life insurance, there is always the risk of murder.

    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I suppose it's possible that some of these guys crossed the wrong people and paid for it with their life, but none of the evidence presented in those videos can't be easily explained away by other circumstances.

    The thing with suicide is that it never makes sense from the survivor's standpoint. It's not uncommon for people to make plans into the future even when they are actively contemplating suicide. For many it's something they've considered for some time so they go through the motions until something finally sends them over the edge. Others wouldn't think about it prior to the moments leading up to it, but some major event causes them to change their thinking in the span of minutes.

    Basically, I doubt the Deutche Bank guy was planning on killing himself on a given day, so it's not surprising that he's making plans to do other things after that date.

    The guy that jumped out the window looks like he had to crawl out to do it, so it's not surprising he's facing the wrong way or broke a pigeon wire while standing on the ledge. Maybe he had second thoughts as he jumped and attempted to turn around to grab something. I think if you're going to throw someone out the window it would be far easier for him to go head first anyway.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Interesting watch.

    But regardless of how they went....

    They went.

    And that's a good thing.

    Their lives as they knew them were over. Maybe not all, there could be a conspiracy or two at play here, but most killed themselves.
