It's an issue we and others have noted again and again: Years after the financial crisis, there have still been no prosecutions of top executives at the major players in the financial crisis.

Too hard? Seriously?

Either they are receiving money to not prosecute, or they are too lazy. This just tells these people on Wall Street to keep doing what caused the crisis in the first place, since there is no consequences to their actions.

"Too hard" to do what you are paid to do? Well OK. If it is really "too hard" to prosecute these creeps, it is because the laws are unclear or inadequate. That means that many legislators are incompetent (which I don't doubt)--so publicize the prosecution problems directly to the taxpayers who pay the legislators' salaries. In other words, prosecutors need to DO SOMETHING to justify their pay.

TOO HARD?? Just seems like another excuse why not to prosecute. It goes to show that crime does pay, and some people ARE infact above and beyond the reach of the Judicial System. It's about time we made our voices heard by the Judges and Politicians actually proved to the world that they DO have morals and are not just full of false promisses.
