New administration rule would permit thousands of eagle deaths at wind farms

WEB Notes: A classic example of those turning a blind eye for profit. I am a firm believer in treating everyone the same and we know God is not a respect of persons either (Romans 2:11). So why are these corporations getting away with these crimes? Yes crimes. There are laws on the books that protect the Bald and Golden Eagles. The offenses are punishable as follows:

“The 1972 amendments increased civil penalties for violating provisions of the Act to a maximum fine of $5,000 or one year imprisonment with $10,000 or not more than two years in prison for a second conviction. Felony convictions carry a maximum fine of $250,000 or two years of imprisonment. The fine doubles for an organization.”

So we see a monetary sum along with a prison sentence. The government will turn a blind eye to something if they support the idea or cause, but if you are on the wrong side then you will certainly pay.
