  •  BP Bosses: GO TO JAIL (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    Amber6541, JeffW

    When I've run corporations, my understanding has been that the corporation shielded me from liability for all corporate actions I executed, except for environmental damage, tax crimes and payroll crimes.

    The executives of BP have pleaded guilty to the greatest environmental crime in the US. They should all go to jail.

    If they don't, they will have reduced criminal liability to a mockery. Corporations will be 1st class citizens, straw men for the criminals who control and benefit from them. So far that's what we've got. These corporate people will simply adjust their costs of doing business while destroying our environment, and take profits after paying fines.
