Never mind justice or law enforcement or keeping the public 'safe'...it's really all about money.

"Jaime Peterson, a mentally disabled man, spent 17 years behind bars for a rape and murder before being cleared by DNA evidence last year.

Previous environmental disasters show the long road for Colorado mine cleanup. University of Michigan Law Professor David Uhlmann is quoted regarding asbestos pollution in Libby, Montana in 1999.  http://www.kansascity.com/news/nation-world/article31302638.html
The Animas River contamination in Colorado is just one in a series of man-made environmental disasters that have taken a toll on the United States. In most cases, cleanup efforts have taken years and have required millions of dollars.
