    Peanut Co. owner refuses to testify to Congress


    It is time for corporate America to face real consequences for their actions. This man endangered the lives of thousands of Americans, injured 600 and killed 8, including endangering our troops in the armed forces. He should do time for his criminal behavior.

    The peanut butter went to the poor folks in Kentucky who had the ice storm, too. (Like they didn't have enough problems).

    I have to agree with you on this one Catz. This company knowingly sold contaminated food. Now people have died. I just wonder what the hell was going through their minds when they said "ship it anyway". At minimum, it's voluntary manslaughter.

    I think that there is a segment of corporate America that is content to allow a certain number of Americans to die as long as their profit margin is sufficient. In those cases, hard time should be mandatory,and these should be treated as violent crimes. There should not be one standard for the wealthy, and a different standard for the poor. If a factory owner pushes for dangerous products to be shipped irrespective of consequences, he should be charged criminally.

    Yes agreed. A jail cell for him and whoever assisted him should be promptly made available.
