From that financial meltdown, Goldman Sachs prospered, giving themselves large salaries and paying themselves huge bonuses while ordinary people suffered with the loss of their homes through foreclosure, through the tanking of their savings (401ks) and through the depletion of their pensions. Those who still had a job found their wages stagnant or flat.
Do Goldman Sachs executives have any remorse for their flagrant acts of wealth transfer? Does Goldman Sachs admit its manipulations caused great distress to others? Does Goldman Sachs admit its role in bringing down the financial system for others but profiting from it themselves?

Cornell West and Chris Hedges to preside at trial, open to public, on Nov. 3 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.
NEW YORK -- On Thursday November 3, 2011 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm, WBAI radio will broadcast the public trial of Goldman Sachs by Occupy Wall Street (OWS) at 99.5 FM. It can also be streamed live at www.wbai.org .
Taking their inspiration from the Bertrand Russell public trials of U.S. government officials held during the Vietnam War, the proceedings will include expert analysis by Cornell West and Chris Hedges, as well as testimony from individuals directly affected by Goldman Sachs’ policies.
The trial will take place at Liberty Square Park where radios tuned in to WBAI 99.5 FM will be distributed throughout the park to enable the crowd to hear the proceedings. The verdict and sentence will be pronounced by the 99%.
WBAI 99.5 FM, a member of the Pacifica Foundation, is the only radio station that has consistently covered the OWS movement even before it went public. The station dared to create a space on its programming lineup for OWS to have a regular program that airs Weekdays from 6:30 pm to 7:00 pm. The Wall Street occupiers can be heard "In their own voices" without the distortion of corporate media.
