Legal Vs. Moral
On February 3rd a train carrying hazardous material crashed outside East Palestine Ohio, creating a dangerous environment for the people living in that town. Politicians have been quick to jump in and point fingers, the train company began an immediate campaign to avoid liability, and the residents are fighting to get their health insurance to cover their many medical needs. The crash has caused countless questions about the legality of the incident, but what about the morality? Do our legal structures uphold our moral values? Were they meant to?
