Unaccountable Top

In August, we wrote about the Loomnin platinum mine in South Africa. Police shot and killed 34 people while trying to disperse protesters at the mine. We have been gone on vacation, so are just now able to note an amazing law that allowed murder charges against 270 South African miners whose striking colleagues were shot and killed by police. The charges have been dropped, but this law is really the ultimate in blaming the bottom for the actions of the top, while not holding the top accountable. Whew!
