Crime Doesn't Pay...

I'm kinda fuzzy on this "law" thing. 1) The company who was "victimized" likes the guy's art and wants another one. Why has he been "sentenced" in the first place? Granted the judge sounds like he did what he could, but.... I just don't understand. I do like the idea in the comments about considering the time to make the "monster" as community service in the first place. I also really like the idea that more of them could be made and placed in other traffic constrained areas.... Yeah, like Smokey the Bear, but for car drivers....

I think about 60% of the reason is just crony capitalism, which makes me want to get out pitchforks and torches. But the other 40% is that the financial system is prone to systemic collapse in a way that the auto industry isn't. If Chrysler collapses, that won't bring down Toyota. But losing just one investment bank nearly crashed all of them, plus quite a lot else.
