YouTube to pay $170M fine after violating kids’ privacy law

My question is who gets the 170 million dollars? Gee. That’s a lot of money for violating a policy. Who has that kind of money? It seems like the government wants companies to violate policies so they can steal from them. A much lower fine is in order here. Nobody got raped or tortured or killed.

Somebody can lose an arm during an industrial negligence malfunction and only get a few thousand dollars compensation.

We the people deserve to know just where that 170 million dollars goes and how they arrive at the amount. Oversight is what we need. I thought congress is supposed to do that. Yes, and report back to us, the people.
