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.

I know it's just one and it is an issue.

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