Industrial Accident are investigated by OSHA. OSHA Investigations are something one does not want to be involved in.It's not only that, but that some only look for the goor OR bad in where we are at as a socitey.
I can assure you, I'm a half empty glass kind of guy, and I try to plan for worst case scenario, so if it doesn't play out like I planned, I'm ahead of the game.
There is no more bad, evil, greediness or laziness in todays man than in men 100, 200 or 1,000 years ago IMO, but if you look at cities today, people think the world is going to HE double toothpicks. Thing is, BAD news make better news on average than good news.
Do I think every LEO is bad or dishonest? Heck no. Thing is, good cops doing good deeds don't make news.
Do we read about kids being killed in the coal mines? I came across one of my grandfather's in a department of mines of Pennsylvania report on how he was injured. Swear to God, the mines were losing at least a couple of people PER week on accidental work deaths let alone serious injuries. Do we learn about that in our own countries history?
See below. This is fatalities by category during the early 1900's

In some aspects America is getting soft. Back in the old days, you could lose 100 workers a year easily in the mines IN ONE AREA by dumb accidents, and no one would care. Now, have someone killed on the jobsite, and dang it, people are going to look to see if the accident could of been avoided and perhaps even write regulations that the buisness MUST follow.
For the record, my dad worked in the family bootlegging mine when he was underage (heat for the house only). I understand why unions were formed, but neither my father or I could stand to work for them LOL
Without safety rules and regulations those nasty Governmental intrusions that some people hate and despise, the same would be happening with 10-20 times more severity today.
Look at Love Canal.
