    They planned to get away with it by the numbers.  These deaths were a calculated risk and clearly their calculations - at least thus far - have proven to be correct.  Don't think for a second that when they went down the unsafe mine road that they didn't figure out down to the last detail what their profit and loss scenario might be - including the loss of a significant number of miners.  They are "not wrong" to understand their liabilities - that's always going to be a big part of a dangerous business like mining, but they are wrong, imo, to abandon safety measures that might have saved lives.
