Herald Pulse

The maximum penalty in the manslaughter charge for the fatal I-90 tunnel collapse is $1,000. What do think of that penalty?

13% - $1,000 is about right.

11% - Not nearly enough, the fine should be at least $500,000.

14% - It’s a criminal penalty, there should be jail time possible.

62% - The fine should be at least $500,000 plus the possibility of jail time.
