Usually only poor blacks are ever convicted of capital crimes. The most serious capital crimes are never prosecuted, even with life imprisonment. These I include:
- Those who aid and abet an aggressive (first strike) war. By international law, anyone who aids or abets such a war is guilty of a capital crime. All the Nazis hanged at the end of WWII (World War II), were convicted on only this charge. The USA is treaty bound to prosecute all such criminals, including foreigners and its own citizens. It never does.
- Faulty product coverups. Car manufactures routinely cover up flaws in their designs that result in the deaths of thousands of people.
- Poisoning. Corporations knowingly dose people with noxious chemicals resulting in thousands of deaths, usually from cancer.
- Spreading disinformation. Corporations have spread disinformation about climate change which will lead to millions of deaths.
Just because a person works for a corporation and commits a crime for the benefit of that corporation should not absolve him from personal legal responsibility.~ Roedy (born:1948-02-04 age:69)
