" A Pennsylvania man who pleaded guilty of illegally dumping millions of waste water from gallons of shale-gas drilling over several years was sentenced to seven years of probation"
And the judge says: "Let this be a fair warning to everyone in the industry that higher standards are expected". . .
MAJIA HERE: Excuse me while I puke. Shale drilling waste water is toxic.
How many people, animals and plants are going to be poisoned because this sociopath dumped toxic waste water?
This sociopath also agreed to pay $100,000 in fines and $257,316 in restitution to "17 companies charges for waste hauling that wasn't done properly"
Why is he paying restitution to companies? Why haven't ALL OF THE ASSETS EARNED WHILE DUMPING WASTE BEEN SEIZED with the intent of using for CLEAN UP?
In March 2011 this SOB was charged with "illegally dumpingwaste water from n atural-gas drilling, sewage sludge and grease from fast food chains in six Pennsylvania counties between 2003 and 2009.
This guy is a repeat offender and he has been given probation!
Probation and fines for rich men are NO DETERRENT!
What kind of warped system do we live in?
I'll tell you!
It is a system run by GREED AND CORRUPTION that have DESTROYED JUSTICE ALTOGETHER.
