Judge Alsup ruled that PG&E violated the felony probation imposed upon it after the San Bruno explosion. While PG&E says safety is its number one priority, the judge said that is untrue. Rather, PG&E’s number one priority seems to be profits.
In 2017 alone, PG&E was responsible for starting 17 wildfires that destroyed thousands of homes and burned alive 22 people. The judge believes it is his job to protect the public from future crimes this convicted felon may commit. The question is exactly how to accomplish that objective.
