The jury is still in deliberation to decide the fate of three men involved in the Lac-Megantic railway disaster. The jury as been sequestered for the past three days. What is the point? It is not like anyone planned to cause what apparently was an accident. What type of punishment would be appropriate if they did place guilt on one or all of the accused? The burden of knowing that the event caused the loss of many lives, I would think, is punishment enough. But the real reason that the trial is taking place at all is because the insurance companies involved need to find a scapegoat. It will be interesting to see what the judge will mete out as a penalty to whoever may be found negligent.
