The point is people should go to jail, MrB. If I can profit personally from whatever crime I want to commit, and know that the "person" punished will be the corporation that will pay a fine that amounts to a relatively small percent of the misbegotten gains that I enabled it to get--why the hell would I not feel empowered to do commit the crime, again and again? You know whipping boys were all the rage when princes were supposed to be untouchable by their guardians. That didn't work, and this hands off the individual who commits the crime while you punish a corporate "person" doesn't work either.
