In 2012, when Mitt Romney ran for president he received a good deal of criticism for saying that corporations were people even though he was correct at least in terms of several constitutional provisions. One thing about corporations is true, however, they are run by corporate executives, people—human beings. Unfortunately, these same corporate executives sometimes make decisions that they know or should know will be detrimental to the health, safety or lives of other human beings in order to secure greater profits. In short, they decide to hold profit over people. Cases involving such decisions and the consequences, if any, to those making those decisions are the focus of this article.
