We Can Trust Corporations As They Would Do Nothing to Besmirch Their Reputations, Part 298

As reported on the Naked Capitalism website:

“’A unit of Caterpillar that repaired railcars at a Los Angeles facility pled guilty last week to a federal environmental offense of dumping parts into the ocean to conceal that it was performing unnecessary and improper repairs for several railcar operators’ [Corporate Crime Reporter]. ‘As a result of illegal conduct that spanned the years 2008 through 2014 – including the unnecessary and improper repairs on railcar adapters, brake beams, grating platforms, brake shoes, friction castings, hand brakes, roof liners and side bearings – United Industries earned at least $5 million.’

  2. What!!???? I am shocked I tell you sir. Shocked to my very core. To imagine that a corporation would do anything unlawful is, well nearly beyond belief.
    OK, now that the fake “shock” has been dealt with, time to get real. This one case is barely the smallest tip of a huge iceberg. Just look at some of the older and even most of the currently operating nuclear sites in ‘Merikkka. Hanford in Washington state is a nasty one. Don’t even need to mention Los Alamos, or do I? How many “super sites” do we have in ‘Merikkka any way? More thane is way too many in my opinion. Not that my opinion is worth much of course.

    • What’s shocking is the bullshit claim in the first place. Corporations have done nothing but cheat and brake laws. The phony “would never besmirch their reputations” belongs in the Lying Hall of Fame along with “Trickledown Economics” and “Tax Cuts Pay for Themselves.” It takes soem training to say these things with a straight face.
