    After years of watching CEOs of companies get by with workplace safety violations, I cannot help but feel there is another shoe to drop. So, he’s guilty. What is the penalty? And just who will pay it?

    I wish what you’ve said was true, but the message the CEOs actually get is they they shouldn’t make mistakes that cost the rich stock holders, i.e. killing poor people is okay, but costing rich people is a crime.

    That’s really great news. But how about the sentence? Only lengthy prison sentences will make a difference. For too long, criminal corporate management have been given minute fines, which mean nothing in their worlds.

    A POSSIBLE one year jail sentence? Blankenship is a mass murderer! He is getting away with mass murder.

    This verdict shows corporate titans remain largely out of bounds for law enforcement, no matter how egregious their actions. I’m sorry, but one year in jail on a misdemeanor conviction is hardly a penalty commensurate with his repeated and impenitant crimes. Corporate malfeasance appears to have won again!
