Feds found Pfizer too big to nail

Imagine being charged with a crime, but an imaginary friend takes the rap for you.
That is essentially what happened when Pfizer, the world's largest pharmaceutical company, was caught illegally marketing Bextra, a painkiller that was taken off the market in 2005 because of safety concerns.

And I thought Lady Justice was blind from the influence of money and/or corruption, and therefore fair. Boy, do I feel like a gullible ultra maroon. ;)

"Too big to nail" equals "too big to fail," lol. That's how monopolies in a so called "free market" become mafia-like gangs, I guess.
