BP committed fraud in furnishing oil-spill-response data required to obtain a permit to enable them to drill the MC 252 location. The reality is they were not prepared to handle or control a blowout and resulting oil spill of this magnitude. Simply put, they lied.
"BP, in their haste to cut corners and save money in the completion process on the well location at MC 252, exhibited willful neglect in their duties to complete the well safely, which led to the blowout and explosion that killed 11 people. Eleven souls that will never come back. Eleven families with mothers and fathers and wives and children. Children who will never see their fathers again.
"This neglect and loss of life constitutes negligent homicide and all involved should be arrested and charged as such."
This scenario will never happen. BP, with its monied, political clout, will never really pay the real compensation the families here deserve, and will never do the real remediation the Gulf needs to heal.
The taxpayers will wind up footing the bill, while BP executives are laughing all the way to the bank.
