    but under what legal authority do you propose to hold the CEO and Board of BP in a room and prevent them from leaving unescorted until you get your answer?

    •  11 people died unncessarily during this mess (0+ / 0-)

      I'd be thinking of maybe material witnesses to destruction of property. Given that 11 people died, I'd also take a hard look at them as potential accessories to manslaughter (corporations are people too, these days). And I'd go after them for the cover-up.

      AND (IANAL, of course - but I'm sure you knew that) I'd be wondering how to do an analog of the Nuremberg trials - but that's just me being malicious.
