From the Paper:

"The Department of Veterans Affairs' Inspector General was not aware of his staff breaking company policy by taking confidential information home. Although it is not believed that the staff had any malicious intent, immediate action was necessary by the Department upon knowledge of the incident. Even if the incident did not go public, the VA Inspector General would have probably taken the same precautions. Firestone Tires on the other hand has no intent of rectifying the situation at hand. Profit seems to drive the company, and the best interest of the workers and environment seem to have no consequence. "
