Florence T. Nakakuni, U.S. attorney for the District of Hawaii, and FBI Special Agent Tom Simon announced indictments Thursday in the University of Hawaii-Stevie Wonder concert fraud case.

The U.S. Attorney's office in Hawaii says it collected more than $2.4 million in civil and criminal actions for the 2013 fiscal year.

U.S. Attorney Florence Nakakuni announced Thursday $1.5 million was collected in criminal actions and about $930,000 was collected in civil actions.

Attorney General Eric Holder says the U.S. Department of Justice collected about $8.1 billion in civil and criminal actions in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30.

Nakakuni's office touts recovering $450,000 from Wahiawa General Hospital to settle two lawsuits alleging improper billing. The hospital agreed to the settlement but didn't admit liability.

Sounds like they are changing our justice(?) system to a source of revenue instead of justice. That doesn't sound like a good idea to me. I would rather see how many people they brought to justice, or at least how many were given a fair trial, whether convicted or found innocent.

Making these corporations pony up money is pretty much the only way to get justice a lot of times. These government entities cost a lot of money to run too, so might as well have those criminal violators cover the costs of running these departments.

Well I think they are getting paid to enforce law and they hope they never have to collect fines and even jail people for wrongdoings, however people are people, and some in ways a lot more egregious than others, try to take advantage of others. That's their job and it's not to collect fines just for the heck of it.

Mr. Myth I really liked your one liner that maybe Neil was Barry's real father, a few days ago. Comedy is alive and well. Move over Dave Shapiro, Mythman is here to save our day!!

Or maybe the combination of the words Neil, Barry and father bothered you?

What would be more relevant to the readers would be where this specifically this revenue goes to.
