Jailing Blankenship Is the Right Thing to Do

WASHINGTON - Statement of Robert Weissman, President, Public Citizen

Note: Today, prosecutors recommended the maximum jail time, one year, for former Massey Energy executive Don Blankenship, who was chief executive officer when an explosion killed 29 workers. Blankenship was found guilty of conspiring to violate safety standards.

I'm guessing that's not one year per death, but less than two weeks jail for the negligent (but profitable) homocide of each dead miner.
