The $4.3B in fines pose NO risk to the health of the banks that settled in the LATEST financial scandal, nor were any traders or executives charged with wrongdoing. Why won't anyone do something substantial to curtail these illegal activities?

Without the major banks, the country would fail. That's why they were bailed out, that's why they do what they want, and that's why no one ever pays for the corruption. They know they are essentially above the law. Great Depression, excellent example

Banks really do have very stringent controls. The banks, as organizations, don't do these things; it's rogue employees.

And yet they continually happen.

The only explanation is turning a blind eye..

Finding juries that have enough knowledge in financial things is difficult.

Also, campaign finance laws allow them to legally bribe the people who would make the laws to convict them.

Also, they hire & pay millions the regulators that monitor them.

Why would they bite the hand that feeds them? Even dogs know better than that.

Why? Go to www.opensecrets.org and follow the money. Wall St. Pays for their campaigns, gives their kids jobs (Pelosi) and guarantees employment when they leave DC. It's a license to steal.
