Wasn’t there some talk many moons ago about holding Corporations, their Executives and their large shareholders accountable for Crimes, or negligence, and other torts for causing harm to Citizens, Consumers, General Public, Employee’s, Etc.?
Wasn’t Ken Lay and other Enron executives held accountable for their unethical, corrupt, immoral acts and behaviors?
Didn’t we talk about holding auto manufacturers accountable for vehicles that cause harm and death to drivers, passengers and the general public?
The pharmaceutical manufacturers and the Congress members that helped the Pharmaceutical companies market and push the opioids should all be held accountable for the death and harm the opioid crisis has caused.
Politicians directly involved in pushing legislation that may have weakened existing protections or made it easier for Corporations to market and distribute highly toxic and addictive drugs, should be the first to go to prison or receive the death penalty for all of the deaths they have caused directly or indirectly.
The Guilty Politicians should also refund all compensation they have received since they became a politician, including any and all donations from Pharmaceuticals, or pharmaceutical supply-chain and other industry campaign donations. This should go back at least 4 decades. The money should go to the victims, their families and other funds to address related injuries.
