Then you make sure that your clean-up workers have the proper safety equipment. It's not that unreasonable. In fact, there were many instances in
which BP wasn't allowing people on the gulf to wear respirators. If someone wore a respirator, they would be sent somewhere else.
It's real easy actually and not unreasonable at all. You hire the people whose life you ruined and then you ensure that they are properly
They should be doing the same thing for prisoners. They should also be insuring that the prisoners have access to the proper safety equipment as well.
The prisoners are people too and chance are, if they are outside the prison walls, cleaning the oil, then their crimes most likely aren't bad and I
would even venture to suggest that many if not most, are in the can for so-called victimless crimes, which would mean that they aren't criminals in
the first place.
The moral of the story is that nobody should be getting sick while cleaning up BP's mess, not prisoners or citizens. There really isn't an excuse
for it at all. Furthermore, BP should be hiring the people that they ruined, instead of trying to save money and enrich fat cats who already rape
