I’ve seen you bitching about the lack of charges being brought against BP, and I can’t help but wonder: What charges? What could they possibly be charged with?
I’m not saying that what is happening in the gulf isn’t horrible. It is, and they – as a company – should be held responsible in some fashion. But what that is, I’m unsure. But what laws have been broken here? Littering? Illegal dumping?
Do we have any laws to deal with this kind of thing?
More importantly – should we?
They should have to foot the entire bill for clean up – it’s their mess, and their fault. Let them pay for it that way. They should also be, in someway, answerable to those whose very lively hoods have been challenged by this event.
But brought up on charges? I don’t see how.
