BP is really feeling the pinch from that one.
It always bugs me when people get it in their head that a company needs to pay for something because of what a few did. Sure, if you heavily penalize BP the CEO will likely get fired, but what of the thousands upon thousands of people they employ who will also suffer due to the backlash said punishment causes with either bankruptcy or massive layoffs?
Guess those people don't matter as long as we get revenge on one CEO or a few idiots right?
Why not do something revolutionary like prosecute the individuals responsible?
