Prosecutors or persecutors?

I think it's time for Congress to take action to prevent prosecuting attorneys from penalizing innocent people for the misdeeds of corporate America. As just a few examples, Toyota, General Motors, General Electric, Bank of America and a host of other banks, have been fined billions of dollars for their misdeeds. The people committing these deeds are not punished, instead their stockholders and people investing in their hard earned dollars in 401k plans are fined. In a number of cases, the perps are even given bonuses. Our own Governor, escaped prosecution for his company's stealing from medicare. While he walked away with millions, his stockholders had to foot the bill. All this is happening while some Republicans want smaller government and less regulation of these vampires of our free enterprise system. Really?
Taxpayers are, of course, footing the bill for the investigation of the illegal acts. While prosecutors are obviously only interested in enhancing their own stature, and settle the suits for what ever the perps are willing to pay, using other people's money. This way they don't have to spend their time on a length trial.

OK! Representative Posey, Here's a chance for you to shine. Fix it.
