Industrialists knowingly exceed toxic waste limits that they do not believe hurt anyone. Locals get cancer within 2 years . Are the industrialists guilty enough to be given a prison term?

I grew up in a state with a nuclear power plant that leaked. Apparently they could not quite ever "fix" it. Cancer rates were higher and birth rates were lower. I say lock them up. Innocent people are hurt by these lawbreakers every day.

Well apparently corporations are people, so you should send their corporation to prison instead.

Hmm... Last I checked an Industrialist is a peeps, and corps are managed by them. But the Poll is about stimulating thought.

Heading toward a general observation that Industry releases toxins and there are seldom consequences other than fines that pale in comparison to damage or clean up costs. LOVE is just one example.

In this case they knowingly defied regulations and are therefor fully culpable. Belief is not a legal defense.
