the inequalities that gall me

there were two major explosions in america this week that took lives. so why were the culprits of only one of them pursued with laser-like focus and charged with manslaughter? why are businesses that take human life through carelessness and greed treated differently than those that take human life with guns and bombs? though the weapon is different the intent is not. when you do something that you know will bring destruction and the lose of life, is it not inherently "murder"? when will we punish those that hide behind the shield of "business" like we punish individuals who take the life of another?
