It's no crime to be an incompetent engineer

Finally, the Davis-Besse trial has gone to jury. This is not quite a lowly engineer, but an engineering manager. The defence says that he had no incentive to cover up. They don't say that he had every incentive to look the other way. Trouble-makers have no protection in Management. When I was in the big company, I could cause trouble by my tenure-equivalent position. Without it, I would have been fired long ago, even though I was always right! :)
