How is it fair that a company can just fabricate a scapegoat company to take all the blame? If they got away with it this time, why doesn't it happen all the time? Like an oil company could just say, "oh that broken spewing rig, it isn't really ours anymore. It's the responsibility of this independent company we just created, who happen to only have a few dollars in the bank, so any fines or lawsuit payouts will soon make it bankrupt."
If responsibility can be so easily shifted, why can't they just shift it back? If corporations are considered persons this budding off of scapegoat entities shouldn't be allowed.
