Banks, and the ultrawealthy in general, have been given carte blanche to lord over us "commoners" in the US. It's a straight up oligarchy masquerading as democracy. "Too big to fail" had to be the moment they knew they had it all to themselves. Already they knew they enjoyed a different system of justice, but at that moment they understood they had the full backing of the US government to bail them out regardless the crimes they committed. I can only imagine this ends badly. The guillotine is an apt image choice.
