Naked Short Selling-- Why Aren't People in Jail?

This video is a year and a half old, but a new topic to me. This is crazy (see Taibbi about 15 min in)-- it's frigging blatant fraud:

About a year ago, Goldman Sachs was fined about half a million dollars for naked short selling but no one went to jail.

In a nice moment of synchronicity, as I was typing this, I just saw "Inside Job" win the best documentary award at the Oscars, and the director came up and said how three years after the huge financial scandal (what the movie was about)-- no one has gone to jail!
