This is outrageous, to say the least. I don't understand, why isn't the media reporting on all of this? What would happen if it was reported on the evening/afternoon news, would people actually do something about it?
The media is owned by banks. Do you think they'd really want us to know about this? Common sense no?

Our country is currently ran by crooks, who selectively enforce laws to suit their own needs.
I doubt if there is an honest person at the executive level of any of these corporations.
They are nothing but giant fat leeches.

It is said the the country was always corrupt not currently. I suppose it is the same in any country you go to. Why even the communist state when it existed there was corruption. Same could be said even for North Korea. How else can they control the people. Money and food buys anything.

How can American authorities fine a non US Bank?
More to the point, how can the Federal Reserve, a private bank, receive part of this 'fine' from a non US bank?!
There seems to be a few organisations that will be receiving money from this 'fine'.
The Federal Reserve hide their activities, yet are recipients from non USA bank fine, and said bank, the HSBC are not hiding their activities. Does that give HSBC the right to fine the Federal Reserve for not being transparent?!
