  •  These "investigations" (7+ / 0-)

    hardly constitute "going after" anybody.  They've had four years, with mountains of evidence, and have shown no inclination to start bringing cases against most of the miscreants.  Some negotiations have led to fines, which have been risible for the actors involved.  Costs of doing business.

    Come back when Lloyd Blankfein or Jamie Dimon are in the dock, and I'll change my mind.

      prosecute without first investigating, and yes, there are 'mountains of evidence' which need to be reviewed, coded, put in a chronology, and anlayzed. That shit takes time, it doesn't happen overnight, it takes years. I was going through several thousand documents a day, five days a week for 8 months, and I came in at the end of discovery. Like I said, this shit takes time. It might feel better to advocate for swift 'justice' when you're so certain you are in the right, while completely ignoring the reality of an investigation of a huge entity, spanning many years, dealing with millions of pieces of evidence.
