Deepwater Horizon Kept Oil Rig Survivors Detained Until They Signed Legal Documents

News

The workers who survived the awful explosion of the Deepwater Horizon/BP oil rig weren't simply taken back to shore after their harrowing escape and rescue -- instead, according to lawyers for the survivors and interviews withThe Guardian, they were detained for up to 40 hours at sea, unable to even call their families until they had signed legal documents absolving Deepwater Horizon.


Lawyers say the isolation was deliberate and that Transocean was trying to wear the men down so they would sign statements denying that they had been hurt or that they had witnessed the explosion that destroyed the rig.

The former "Apprentice" host wants to add some reality TV game show spice to the immigration dilemma: Parents caught crossing the border illegally can either remain detained with their kids in a sweltering tent city or give up custody of the child, to be cared for by a hopefully nice person and maybe someday seen again. We call it "Sophist's Choice."
