I would like members to confirm if and when higher ups in government and finance are indicted, arrested, convicted, and sentenced. Have we been over looking the efforts of our justice serving fellow Americans? I think maybe we have.Maybe I've been blind to small efforts in looking for one huge team effort.
Please update this discussion with any and all actions in this regard that you become aware of. It could be used later to see if actions taken by an organization has a positive effect or not.
Here's a recernt case to start things off.
June 5, 2012
NEWARK, N.J. — A former mortgage broker was sentenced Tuesday to 2 1/2 years in prison for being the middleman in a $37 million insider trading scheme that federal authorities said was one of the longest-running ever uncovered.
Kenneth Robinson's sentencing in U.S. District court came a day after his two co-conspirators received far lengthier sentences for their role in the 17-year conspiracy.
Former attorney Matthew Kluger, of Oakton, Va., received 12 years, the longest sentence ever handed down in an insider trading case. Former New York stock trader Garrett Bauer received nine years.
The three men admitted using advance information on company mergers provided by Kluger. Robinson, 46, of Long Beach, N.Y., knew both men separately and provided the connection between them.
Kluger admitted passing the information to Robinson, who gave it to Bauer. The trio made an estimated $37 million on trades from 2006 to 2011, according to court documents, which included $11 million on Oracle's acquisition of Sun Microsystems in 2009.
Bauer's attorney said in court Monday that his client made a profit of $22 million to $25 million when losses and taxes were factored in.
While the illegal trades charged in the criminal complaint date back to 2006, all three men pleaded guilty to conspiracy dating back to the mid-1990s when Kluger began working at a series of prestigious law firms and had access to privileged information.
The scheme unraveled in 2011 when FBI agents searched Robinson's home. After that, he secretly recorded conversations with Kluger and Bauer for the government.

Three men arrested in connection with distressed property schemes
in which the Southern California men were allegedly involved caused more than $10 million in losses for homeowners, lenders and real estate investors.
According to the indictment, the three men sometimes used short-sale approval letters that were fabricated. Consequently, authorities said, home buyers and investors purchased homes to which they thought they had clear titles but were actually devalued and subject to hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of liens.
At other times, the three men allegedly assumed the identities of property owners and then sold or refinanced properties without the real owners' authorization. In one scheme a home owned by individuals in Saudi Arabia was transferred multiple times, triggering losses of more than $1 million, the indictment says.
If convicted on all charges, Nabizada and Moore face a maximum penalty of 22 years in prison while Asghari faces a maximum of 32 years in prison.
Agents seized more than $548,937 in cash and $1.7 million in proceeds from the alleged schemes held in bank accounts. Other seizures included jewelry and two Bentley luxury cars and a Mercedes-Benz.

‘Sovereign citizen’ captured
Thursday, July 5, 2012
A wanted Andalusia couple – a man who described himself as a “sovereign citizen and self-proclaimed lawyer” and his girlfriend – were captured Monday in Florida.
Travis Lee Lambert, then-61, was charged in 2011 with misdemeanor unlawful practice of serving as a lawyer in Houston County and was released on a $3,000 bond.
Lambert is accused of working on behalf of his girlfriend, the then-60-year-old Janet Tharpe Hancock of Andalusia, who was convicted of burglarizing a residence in Dothan. The two contended that as a sovereign, the laws of the United States did not apply to them. Hancock was released on a $100,000 bond and was sentenced to three years in prison. She had appealed her conviction, but when it was denied, the two fled before heading to court.
A–Advantage Bonding bail enforcement agents found the couple in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
Both Hancock and Lambert are now in the custody of Port Saint Lucie Sheriff Department awaiting extradition back to Houston

Here's another one in chicago area tied by more ways than one to ohbaba and acorn community organizers.
Federal law enforcement officials arrested the former head of a troubled Cook County jobs program on Friday. Forty-two-year-old Chicago resident Brendolyn Hart-Glover is accused of scheming to falsify documents.
The county's President's Office of Employment Training, or POET, had such a scarred past that the name was scrapped after Toni Preckwinkle took over as board president. Before then, Hart-Glover was among its top staff members.
According to the criminal complaint, the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) demanded documents in 2009 and 2010 related to a summer jobs program for kids - documents that POET didn't have.
The complaint said Hart-Glover knew more than a million dollars were at stake, as well as her job and others' jobs.
The feds said in one meeting, Hart-Glover told a staff member to close the door and ordered employees to "recreate" or "reproduce" the missing files. In another conversation, according to the complaint, she told staff where to find blank birth certificates on her desk.
Prosecutors said she lied to DCEO, and later lied to federal investigators.
Last year, Hart-Glover told the Chicago Sun-Times that she didn’t do anything wrong.
In 2009, her sister-in-law, Shirley Glover, a former fiscal manager of the same office, pleaded guilty to embezzling over a hundred thousand dollars
