Will the US ever prosecute criminal bankers?
It was big news two weeks ago when investigators arrested Sean FitzPatrick, the former chief executive officer of Anglo-Irish Bank, and announced new criminal charges against him. FitzPatrick has been widely cast as the man who nearly bankrupted Ireland, and his July 24 arrest adds 16 counts relating to a conspiracy to prop up the stock price of the now-defunct bank. When are we in the United States going to start indicting the financial executives who caused our economy to crash?
