Agreed. This is one things that always bothers me when someone sues the government or the police and wins. Everybody cheers and thinks "that'll show them!" But the government pays nothing. It's those very same taxpayers who are cheering the court victory who pay the bill. The people in government actually responsible for the crime still have their jobs and pensions, and don't pay a penny in restitution. A lawsuit against the government provides zero motivation not to commit the same offense again. Ideally, the people paying for it would demand change - but far too few are even aware that it is their money being used to pay lawsuits the government loses.
