Corporate and Government Homicide

Good day, good people.

For devotees of the English language: Minatory is an adjective. It means menacing or mean.

Do you want your children to grow up believing and then knowing that breaking laws for which you are not punished is alright? Chief Financial Officers, CEOs, of financial services companies whom defrauded their customers have not been criminally prosecuted for their crimes they committed. Why? Since nothing happened to Dick Cheney’s cabal whom went to war illegally in Iraq, murdered military personnel and civilians, your children will believe nothing will happen to them either if they commit a crime. CEOs, Cheney and the cabal are bad role models — unless you are without a moral sense.

Money is more important than lives to corporations who intentionally, knowingly, negligently and willfully kill their workers, and they are guilty of homicide. The relationship between corporations and their regulators is corrupt. As a result, the minatory CEOs and inspectors are never prosecuted for their conspiracy to commit homicide and homicide, but just cited and/or fined. Nothing has changed as of this writing. Why?

Why probably has something to do with the responsible legislators being irresponsible, abdicating their obligations because of the bribes they receive from the corporations and the lobbyists — not disguised as campaign contributions. The legislators were well aware of the abuses and deaths but did nothing because they were owned by the corporations and/or lobbyists. Jack Abramoff, the former Washington, D.C. lobbyist, once boasted, “I owned one hundred members of Congress.” I wonder who owns them now?

Former United States Secretary of Energy, Bill Richardson, said in 2000, “Priority one was production of nuclear weapons . . . [the] last priority was the safety and health of the workers that build these weapons.” Bracket is mine.

During the nineteenth century, the coal mine owners in the United States had a total disregard for the health, lives and welfare of their workers. Safety measures were none existent, because the miners were expendable, and no value was placed on their lives. The owners did not pay them in dollars, but in company script which was only spendable at the company store. The owners overcharged the workers for the food they sold to them. These abuses and a total disregard for the lives of the miners, adults and children, caused the formation of the United Mine Workers of America in 1890. John L. Lewis was one of the leaders and a major factor in forcing safety legislation and improving the miners lives.

The following were all workplace explosions. Seven workers died at the Tesoro refinery in Washington, Twenty-nine in Upper Big Branch coal mine owned by Massey Energy in West Virginia, and BP killed eleven on the Deepwater Horizon rig in the Gulf of Mexico, all of these within eighteen days.

Regarding the workplace explosions and industrial homicides, Jane F. Barrett, an associate professor of law at the University of Maryland School of Law, said, “In all of these cases, safety procedures were bypassed or standard operating procedures were ignored due to pressures on plant personnel to save time and/;or money.” Nothing has changed as of this writing — why?

CEOs of corporations who put profits before the safety of their employees conspire to engage in homicide and commit homicide also suffer from obsessive compulsive disorder — also known as greed. If they were to be prosecuted for their criminal conduct, they might be motivated to put the safety of their workers in first position instead of in no position — death.

During the Cheney administration’s reign of fear, like the mine owners, he, Rumsfeld and Bush had a total disregard for the lives of military personnel and civilians when they decided to go to war in Iraq illegally and not prepared.

Should the CEOs of corporations who conspire to commit homicide and homicide be criminally prosecuted for their crimes?

Should Cheney, Rumsfeld, Bush and their cabal be prosecuted for homicide? There is no statute of limitations on murder — it is never too late!

Contacting me with comments and constructive criticisms with honesty and pleasantness their constant companions will always be welcomed.

Dear Mr. McNeet,
Though I totally agree with the scope of your article, and as a jurist I am of the opinion that Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Blair should be tried for War Crimes, and not only, as it my opinion that 9/11 was brought upon the American people with full knowledge of these men, simply prosecuting these men will not answer the real issue.
These people are just the tip of a very large ice berg, in fact I am quite convinced that in the scale of things they are at the level of middle ranking executives in a large corporation. This large corporation in my view, can be traced back to Operation “Paperclip”, which allowed thousands of loyal Nazis to find safe abode in the USA, because of their status as scientists, researchers, and military men. They brought with them a plethora of projects ranging from jet planes designs to mind control and interrogation techniques. Therefore I see the whole scenario a concatenation of events that are leading to the rebirth of the Fourth Reich, and the progressive end of democracy on the planet.
Yours Truly,
Dr. Marco Carli
