Criminal conviction of Brent Brewbaker for fraud and antitrust violations -- a big victory by USDOJ in North Carolina bid-rigging case -- read the USDOJ press release on criminal conviction in North Carolina bid-rigging and fraud scheme that victimized North Carolina Department of Transportation.
While Florida is a hotbed of antitrust violations, USDOJ has not yet prosecuted certain credibly alleged criminal schemers, including local ones known to our Seventh Circuit State's Attorney's office.
Does our elected prosecutor, RALPH JOSEPH LARIZZA, have what labor economists would call a "backward-bending labor supply curve?"
Is LARIZZA cynical, corrupt, lazy, louche or no-account, a passive pompous third-rate elected official, unwilling to bring tough cases because he wants to keep his conviction rate high, for re-election purposes?
Enough sloth and torpor.
We, the People deserve prosecutors who will prosecute, like the USDOJ Antitrust Division..
What are we waiting for?
