Billionaire tax cheat

What kind of lesson have the people learned when reading about the recent “forgiveness” of Ty Warner, who apologized for his transgressions?
The billionaire creator of Beanie Babies, Warner was sentenced to two years’ probation — and no prison time — for hiding $25 million in two Swiss bank accounts to avoid taxes.
I wonder how many others resort to this measure of tax evasion that our government has neglected to sentence properly.
Wouldn’t just prosecution help our budget crisis and send a better message to today’s youth?
