Why are the tax payers sharing in these huge government settlements too? Every single one of us should be getting a check for our portion of these huge settlements.

Don’t begrudge the whistle blowers. If it wasn’t for them nothing would have happened. As usual DOJ and SEC and Congress weren’t going to do anything.
Of course, some should be prosecuted, but don’t expect DOJ to do anything since they’re afraid they can’t prove anything and are afraid to face the defense team lawyers.

There should be no need for whistle blower protection. Bounties and awards should make it worth their while. Whistle blowers have way more guts than the rest of us. Good going to them.

Better the money should go to whistleblowers, who have inside information, than to the trial lawyers alone. These new incentives for whistleblowers are a budget-neutral, market-based way to root out a lot of corruption. I would definitely turn my boss in for 10 million dollars if he was ripping people off. Why not? Bosses are replaceable.
