I want some people in jail over this

“Internal documents from BP show that there were serious problems and safety concerns with the Deepwater Horizon rig far earlier than those the company described to Congress last week.

The problems involved the well casing and the blowout preventer, which are considered critical pieces in the chain of events that led to the disaster on the rig.

The documents show that in March, after several weeks of problems on the rig, BP was struggling with a loss of “well control.” And as far back as 11 months ago, it was concerned about the well casing and the blowout preventer.”

  1. I am totally in agreement with you. The BP executives, the Transocean executives, the Minerals Management agency people who signed off on the transgressions, all of them in jail, right now or right soon. I wanna see Congressmen and Senators going to jail too, any bastards who pushed this deregulatory and All-Hail-Our-Corporate-Overlords meme for the last 30 years need punishment for leading us to this day…
