Must read the whole article ... i just took a little piece out of the article ... it's very interesting ... HOW IS THIS PUNISHMENT? these people are being 'investigated' yet somehow they are able to still make millions off of the crisis ... when will greed finally hit it's limit? when will the government realize that a slap on the wrist and offers of billions of dollars is not the answer ... the people who are in charge of these companies will never learn if the government allows this kind of stuff to happen.
