Nice to see...
For many years, i've watched the criminal justice system worldwide flounder as crooks had their way with the financial industry and individuals the world over, and when they would get caught, the penalties were laughable at best. I've read many stories of people committing massive fraud to the tune of millions of dollars getting less of a sentence than a first time DUI here in Arizona, if they were even to get caught.
Now it seems that this trend is changing, more and more these criminal rings are getting caught, it seems like every day i'm reading multiple stories of big fraudsters getting busted, and they're starting to handed serious sentences, which is nice to see, i mean seriously, something is wrong with the system if i could get a bigger sentence for having a $20 bag of pot than i would if i defrauded untold numbers of people out of millions of dollars.
but in the end, this is probably just a matter of the dumber criminals getting weeded out, and the bar of entry in to the international fraudsters club getting raised a little.
