Exactly. It makes as much sense as criminalizing someone because they want to "feel good". War on Drugs? Our entire justice system has been turned upside down. We prosecute people who do nothing that is really criminal and allow to go free those who murder, rape and steal.
Insider trading leads the news again, casting a cloud over Steven Cohen's SAC Capital Advisors $14 billion hedge fund.

The SEC charged Mathew Martoma, who used to manage a SAC Capital division, with using inside information about tests on an Alzheimer's drug to trade stock of the company working on it.

The media love this stuff. I imagine reporters sitting around saying: "The SEC finally will punish greedy Wall Street! These tycoons rig the game -- cheating is how they acquire $14 billion -- and now noble government prosecutors will bring justice."

But this is nonsense. Government prosecutors are as ruthless...
