I am one of millions who have been adversely affected by this disaster, in a variety of ways, and as such, I urge you not to accept the criminal plea deal as proposed and endorsed by the Department of Justice and BP.
Notice the increase in BP commercials on television lately? While several of the points in the commercials regarding the effectiveness of BP's response are true, allow for me to provide some balance to their story. Not everyone has enjoyed the successful resolution the company portrays.
The only way to ensure we won't forever condemn future generations to cleaning up our messes is to stop making them in the first place. That means ensuring drilling companies are responsible for fixing their mistakes.
