    that's a piss-poor excuse for not doing one's job isn't it?

    DoJ could have had dozens of arrests and convictions of Bankers, but they cut deals instead. The shareholders pay a fine; the bankers get healthy on their profits, and laugh as they share coke with their hookers and insider info with their accomplices.

    That last bit isn't hyperbole, either.

    So "it's hard work" and "we need convictions but we can't get those because we always cut them a nice deal when we catch them doing major crimes" added together tells us something.

    Not to insult your friend but his reasons are pretty thin, no? The only reason the RICO talk here is a joke is because the DoJ is, like many here keep saying, ... a joke.

    •  And "drug cartels" and "organized crime" (0+ / 0-)

      I could see it's hard to flip the lower orders in the hierarchy because maybe your family ends up dead or even beheaded.

      But traders at a desk on Wall Street? I don't think so. Just sounds like more "but it's hard work" to me.
