Document Summary

Laws target worst repeat offenders of multiple egregious acts. Politicians will caution against going too far in applying the law against offenders. There won"t be much media or public interest. Lawyers will be able to set up consulting operations to advise offenders on how to avoid prosecution. Offenders will get to help write the legislation. Inspectors were there the day before it happened. Two mine managers charged with 26 counts of manslaughter and criminal negligence causing death. Coal dust got ignited by methane - they weren"t neutralizing it. Today it"s at its lowest and lowest forms of crime. Violent crime has been going down for decades. Majority of homicides are solved in the first week (75) 3 quarters are under the influence of drugs/alcohol. Don"t know numbers, just know which ones have a lot and little. 2/3 include criminal culpability yet no criminal charges. Those charged are rarely convicted - majority don"t even get charges.
