Instead of chasing these irrelevant and minute trades, why doesnt the justice department go after the real perpetrators of market fraud – the likes of Bill Ackman, Dan Loeb, Carl Ichan (to name a few) who collude and manipulate stocks like Herbalife, Genzyme (to scratch the surface) and drive volatility in ways that they profit to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.

How many hundreds of millions if not billions were made on the BS while the retail investor sat with their thumbs up their butts? The market is rigged by the whales at the top and we have a justice system that is scared to act or simply decides to look the other way. F…that
