Is There Any Evil That Goldman Sachs Did Not Profit From?

It doesn't seem like it, since Goldman Sachs was sitting on the board of a company that makes money from running a website that is the leading website for human trafficking in the U.S.A.

Goldman Sachs owed about 15% of Village Voice Media, which owned the website. Even though they knew about the human trafficking for at least two years, Goldman did nothing until they were scorched by Nicholas Kristof's initial column. That's when Goldman sold off its interest in VVM as fast as it could.

Goldman Sachs made their money and then cut and ran when the heat was turned on. Rather than try to do something positive, such as pushing VVM to shut down the fucking website (remember, Goldman had a seat on the board of figureheads directors), they just cashed out and ran away.

By this point in time, would anybody be surprised if it were alleged that Goldman Sachs had an investment in the Sinaloa Cartel?

"Sinaloa Cartel", why not. They probably have some very lucrative investments with the Vatican, as well.
