Assuming there is a huge fine, who gets the money? Which specific agency or department of government? What do they do with it? Why not give it to charity or maybe the Red Cross who responded in a pretty bi way during the oil spill?

It is preposterous to allow companies with such a horrific record on criminal negligence to still operate business as usual.
Is any one from the three guilty parties going to prison ? …of course not !!!
These fines are only a small business expense, our judges must be getting some pretty hefty ‘present’s, eh?
What a system, what a country, and we dare criticize other countries on corruption & human rights ??
