Inas Syed RSDQ 9 The articles that the class read this week were The Crash of Valujet Flight 592 by Rick A. Matthews and David Kauzlarich and Chapter 13 from an article originally published called “Organizing Ecological Revolution” in Monthly Review 57, no. 5. The Crash of Valujet Flight 592 is another case of state-crime done by the people who are in charge that have neglected to do their jobs in turn killing people. The Valujet Flight crashed in the Florida Everglades killed all 105 passengers and 5 crew members. The fire was caused by a fire that erupted after oxygen generators exploded in a cargo compartment. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was found to be negligent in its oversight of the airlines that were not adequately monitoring the safety of the commercial flights. The FAA also refused to institute safeguards and guidelines that would protect passengers and crews from potential crashes (Matthews, Kauzlarich, pg 82). After this tragedy happened, the press and the government were very quick to put the blame on the Valujet and SabreTech personnel while they ignored the role of the FAA. The FAA can be directly linked to the fire that killed all of those passengers and staff. The organization ignored two clear recommendations given by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) that were to; place smoke detectors in the cargo holds and to reclassify D cargo holds so that they would contain a fire and not allow it to spread to the rest of the plane (Matthew, Kauzlarich, pg 83). The crash is an example of state-facilitated state-corporate crime.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
