If that's your definition, and Petrobas and others are your enemy category, than one might suppose he did, but if you stand by the citizenry, one day you might actually comprehend who your real enemy is (assuming you aren't a chatbot or some type of poseur).
In fact, this is to redirect attention from the actual cause, which is internalization, which is the purchase of almost 100% (like around 93% to 96%) of all public stock purchases by the top banks and hedge funds from the major brokerage firms. Then they do these trades they have purchased on their own internal systesm (known as dark pools), thus they control the public trades, and they have the insider data as to the trends --- really almost complete command and control.
This is a replay of when the criminal AG, Holder, went after some small fry awhile back, proclaiming they had violated the Law of Fraudulent Conveyance, one of many crimes which the banksters had knowingly and willfully violated to bring about the global economic meltdown a few years back.

I realize that to many Ameritards, just say it is so, makes it so.
I realize that most Ameritards have no idea, or even interest, that Holder earned his big bucks defending corporations which hired assassins to murder labor organizers and protesters (South American and West Africa), nor would such background data affect their nonthinking ways.
This is ABSURD! He's being singled out because the federal government has granted blanket immunity to the big financial firms and their employees. I guess he didn't bribe the right politicians and didn't provide enough job offers to federal bureaucrats.
Yes, placing orders that you never intend to execute is technically illegal, but the big financial firms that engage in HFT do this crap every f***ing day! Pick a random trading day in the last year and subpoena the order history of a big trading firm. I guarantee that there will be thousands of orders submitted and canceled in milliseconds. Orders which the firm obviously had zero intention of ever executing. Exactly the sort of activity they are calling "criminal" in this one particular case. The U.S. government is a monstrosity. Arbitrary enforcement of the law is a hideous injustice and it's standard procedure in government.
If I was a senator I'd be grilling the AG nominee about this selective enforcement BS.
Adderall is hardly a weaker version of meth even though it is classified as an amphetamine. Cough and cold tablets, specifically nasal decongestants are also amphetamines but people don't turn into toothless zombies from taking them.
I don't think any libertarian geeks believe for one moment that using bitcoin is really "sticking it to the man" in terms of having a significant effect. If it was, the banking cartel and its government dogs would have made it illegal already.
No, it's more like being environmentally responsible by minimizing your own waste and energy usage. Your marginal contribution means nothing, but if your behavior was universalized, it would have an effect.
The current monetary system is a rigged game.

Good thinking. The judge needs to declare them "mentally defective"(by human standards) so that they get added to the NICS database and will be denied firearms purchase.
