The very idea that government officials are acting as agents of BP (of all companies) in what clearly seem to be unconstitutional acts to intimidate
and impede the media is infuriating. Obviously, the U.S. Government and BP share the same interest -- preventing the public from knowing the
magnitude of the spill and the inadequacy of the clean-up efforts -- but this creepy police state behavior is intolerable. In this latest case, the
journalists were not even focused on the spill itself, but on BP's other potentially reckless behavior with other refineries, and yet there are DHS
agents and local police officials acting as BP's personal muscle to detain, interrogate, and threaten a photographer. BP's destructive conduct, and
the government's complicity, have slowly faded from public attention, and there clearly seem to be multiple levels of law enforcement devoted to
keeping it that way, no matter how plainly illegal their tactics are.
If and when a hurrican or even tropical storm pushes the oil into cities, you can espect marshall law in the region!
anyone up for a revolution yet?
