Twelve Major Auto Makers Now Shown to Murder to Save a Dollar

Politics, religion, money. The three biggest evils that for some reason, people want to avoid talking about. Stay neutral, make no progress.  Everyone knows that if you dig deep enough in almost every company, you'll find people who lied, cheated, stole, and killed to make more money than they'd ever need.  This is allowed to happen because the people close to them who can stop them, are lazy or afraid of confrontation.  On top of that, a good portion of the public is less likely to go against someone who's clearly wrong, if they belong to whatever group people put themselves in.  Especially political and religious affiliations.

I'm writing this because of another batch of auto makers who intentionally cheated on emissions tests, rather than spend their billions on lowering the toxins their cars put out.  You can read the full article here.  Basically there are laws against certain levels of poisons that vehicles put out, since they contribute to killing the planet in the long term, and killing people who breathe them in in the short term.  These auto makers didn't care, because money.  I personally think this is no different than walking up to someone and injecting them with poison.  Do you?  Does anyone else think that the people responsible for this should be arrested and tried for at least manslaughter?  Why is it illegal for a hitman to be hired to kill one person, but a CEO gets off the hook for secretly arranging mass murder?

"“The issue is a systemic one” across the industry, said Nick Molden, whose company Emissions Analytics tested the cars. The Guardian revealed last week that diesel cars from Renault, Nissan, Hyundai, Citroen, Fiat, Volvo and Jeep all pumped out significantly more NOx in more realistic driving conditions. NOx pollution is at illegal levels in many parts of the UK and is believed to have caused many thousands of premature deaths and billions of pounds in health costs." -theguardian
