Thank you. He’s the fall guy they’re hoping to throw at us so we don’t go after the rest of them. Keep prosecuting.

Prosecuting individuals - no matter how many - is the whole "fall guy".

Changing the system is what's necessary. The same system will produce the same kinds of people again and again and again.

Get as many as you want. It'll be like stepping on individual ants thinking you'll affect the colony producing them.

Good point
