Judges and other High profile, Rich people are the only ones that get a free pass in cases like this, Poor People are charged with a Crime, and Rich, Powerful people are not even given a reprimand. Justice is not the same for Rich and Poor.

Charge the management not the workers. CEO needs to resign from legislature or his job one. Conflict of interest. Look at the bill he passed on regulating childcare.

Goad they were protocols put in place to keep tragedies such as this from happening. You cannot legislate the laziness of these individuals that committed this horrific crime one of the women actually took roll and counted the little boy present. this is not a political problem this is dereliction of duty, fraud and manslaughter.

Beartrap makes a broad sweeping statement that judges and other high profile (whatever that means) get a free pass. The judge was charged too. I'm assuming he doesn't know the difference between charged and convicted.
