Companies are responsible

The fertilizer companies are blaming the city of West for not being prepared for an explosion.

That’s no different than a murderer blaming his victim for allowing himself to be killed.

Since Citizens United won their right for corporations to be equated with “people,” they should bear the same responsibility for their actions, or inaction, as the rest of us.

Unless this class of “people” is above the laws that We the People are expected to adhere to, they should be charged, jailed and tried for negligent homicide like anyone else.
