I do think we need to reverse this trend of it becoming less and less likely for powerful and/or rich people to ever face legal consequences for anything, even of the mild "pay the fine equivalent to your couch quarters" variety.

I don't think "it was ever so." It was ever so more than it should have been, but it is getting worse! These guys don't even sweat a bit occasionally anymore.

They used to take securities fraud a bit seriously, if only because screwing (other) rich people was a no-no, but now the mega-rich screwing the merely rich seems to be fine!
