The selective criminalization of research fraud - Eric Poehlman to go to prison

Eric Poehlman to go to prison for scientific misconduct. Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven Kelley told the court:

"This is part of a new era when people are taking this kind of conduct more seriously."

But is that true? Strange that corporate scientific crimes (and the academics who collude in such crimes) are shielded from criminal prosecution.

Justice is always violent to the party offending,
for every man is innocent in his own eyes.
Defoe, Daniel
