The real news would be Halliburton doing something honestly, fairly, or charitably. That might tarnish their reputation as the evil empire.

So I guess shouldn't have made this thread? Well sorry guys but there is no delete thread button(well for the
moderator there is but not for everyone else) so you will just have to tolerate this thread.

:D

$200,000 fine... what a joke. The company made $200,000 in the time it took me to type this.

I work in the environmental/asbestos industry, so I'm used to seeing fines levied against those not following regulations/laws. Just as in this case, the fines and penalties are so lenient that it pays to not follow the regs/laws.

Destroy wrongful death evidence, pay the equivalent of an hour's wages. Get caught with a joint, and get 5+ years in prison.

How true. Double standards of justice are sickening.
