One cannot argue the Chinese really don't mess around on corporate crime. Death over Chinese Milk:
Death penalty over Chinese milk
One man has been given the death penalty and another a life sentence for their involvement in China's contaminated milk scandal.
Zhang Yujun and Zhang Yanzhang were accused of involvement in producing a melamine-laced powder that enabled milk to appear higher in protein.
The so-called "protein powder" was then sold to dairies, and led to the deaths of six children and made 300,000 ill.
Several other businessmen and executives are due to be sentenced.
The death sentence of Zhang Yujun was the first to be handed down by Shijiazhuang Intermediate People's Court in northern China, where the Sanlu dairy, which was at the centre of the scandal, is based.
Zhang Yujun was convicted of endangering public security by producing and selling milk laced with the industrial chemical melamine, Xinhua news agency reports.
Here in the United States, Madoff gets an ankle bracelet and on bail, living in a 7 million dollar apartment while awaiting trial.
His Ponzi scheme has resulted in $50 billion dollars disappearing and at least two suicides.
I wonder what would happen to corporate crime in the United States if we modeled the Chinese in justice.
I haven't even started on the many incidents of corporate crime which resulted in hundreds of deaths.
