I know I won't get a definitive answer, but this has been bothering me for a few days as I've been reading about the intentional effort being made
to block non-authorized people from the beaches and other areas related to the oil mess.
How do the people involved with obstructing the media and others do it? How do they set aside their moral compass and actually turn people away when
we, the people, and especially the local residents deserve to know what is going on? I simply cannot understand how they can sleep at night while
knowing that they're intentionally preventing people from understanding the truth of the situation, or at least something closer to the truth.
I'm sure the reason is, at least in part, related to money, but it still just flabbergasts me that these private security folks, BP personnel, the
government, and others can justify denying people what they deserve to know. Millions of people, perhaps more depending on how bad things get, will be
affected to various degrees. And yet these people find a way to act like bullies so that this epic disaster can be swept under the carpet. It's
sickening. I surely couldn't stand on a beach covered in oil and tell local residents that they're not allowed to be there. No amount of money is
worth setting aside ones morals and conscience.
