Well duh. Finally a judge says what everyone knows.
A judge has found “reasonable evidence” that Elon Musk and other executives at Tesla knew that the company’s self-driving technology was defective but still allowed the cars to be driven in an unsafe manner anyway, according to a recent ruling issued in Florida.
Palm Beach county circuit court judge Reid Scott said he’d found evidence that Tesla “engaged in a marketing strategy that painted the products as autonomous” and that Musk’s public statements about the technology “had a significant effect on the belief about the capabilities of the products”.
Can you believe it turns out that the same guy who profited from Apartheid and spends his time shamelessly spreading dangerous anti-semitic conspiracies like he’s Henry Ford trying to help Hitler take over… also doesn’t care about all the people dying from his words and actions?
We’ve seen multiple engineers from Tesla testify that Elon Musk personally demanded fraudulent “driverless” be used as a tactic to promote their cars over the competition. Dieselgate of VW causing health concerns should be seen as a drop in the bucket, barely on the scale of intent to harm, when it is compared to Tesla killing dozens of people with intentional lies.
