At what point should there be jail time?

I'm not even going to bother with links here, if you don't already have them on your own, you are not paying very careful attention.

One good ol' boy scammed tax payers out of millions,
while building them, ironically, a courthouse.

One good ol' girl, stole 9 million dollars from a town full of children.

Another, scammed taxpayers into paying for a big ol' party for
her good ol' friends.

One is sitting in jail, in a Club Med sort of a way.

One will go to jail eventually, in a Club Med sort of a way.

And the last, as far as I can tell,
still doesn't know what it feels like to be locked in a cage,
and feel the door slam shut.

I think there should be some jail time,
you don't pass go, and you don't get two hundred dollars.

I think betraying the public trust is treasonous.

I think if you sit around figuring out ways to screw
your countrymen, and you get caught doing it,
you should go to jail.

Would jail time be a deterrent? Who cares?

When these people do these things, they disturb a balance.
The imbalance remains until they "pay" for their crime.

Revenge is about getting even.
