    before I read a word of this diary.

    Massey has already gone through the stage of openly buying judges and state legislators. They've violated the law with impunity.  They've gone way beyond being "bad actors," they're a serious threat to the rule of law.

    Heck, they're a huge black mark on the coal industry, and when you're making big coal look bad...

      That is truly saying something.  What is his rep inthe industry?  Is he admired? Feared? hated?  Any chance the industry may offer him up one day on a silver platter as a scapegoat?

        All the CEO's are "chummy," and they put up a unified front against regulation, larger fines, etc.

        But on a deeper level, they do hate him.  They hate him because if Massey wasn't constantly blowing past safety and enviromental regulations, the rest of them wouldn't be under a microscope.  They think he's a loose cannon who thinks its easier to buy a judge than do anything right.
