Thousands and thousands died. Many suffered along with their families. Homicide charges were never filed, and only a slap of the hand was given as punishment.
The opioid crisis continues while business gets away with murder.
Too-big-to-fail pharmaceutical companies are finally admitting guilt in their scheme to get Americans addicted. They are willing to pay victims, but only to a limited extent as they threaten bankruptcy.
If you are young, poorly educated, or a person of color, you can be imprisoned decades for carrying a few ounces of marijuana. Use a gun and commit a crime, you can be locked up forever. What about white collar crime, where instead of a gun, greed is the weapon? In the opioid crisis, no real bullets, still people die.
We should all face the same consequence if we commit a crime.
What if everyone was allowed to pay a fine in lieu of prison? In reality, we know those backed by money escape incarceration.
Thousands and thousands died. Too-big-to-fail should go to jail.
