Dog and pony show. Banks pay paltry settlement fines so it appears that they are being punished. The amount is so insignificant compared to the crime it is but a slap on the wrist and really nothing but a small interest payment for allowing the practice to continue. Theater like this makes it look like the government gives a shit, but they don't as long as the banks keep throwing an offering the the government collection plate so these puppets are appeased. Whole system is a joke.
