Source: CBS News

The Justice Department is said to be considering filing the first criminal charges in its probe of the Gulf oil spill case.

2. The policies of greed that come from the top are to blame
but they'll pick some middle manager to take the fall. They'll also give the BP a fine that to them is just a cost of doing business and probably even a tax writeoff. Japan used to charge the principals of the company for wrongdoings, I don't know if they do anymore but that is the way it should be. The policy setters should be charged, jailed, fined and the corporate charter revoked.
