The American public now just assumes no one will be punished over the BP spill in the Gulf. BP seems to run the US Coast Guard, courts, investigations, and has undue influence in the American Government. A government that is bought and paid for by corporations won't adequately investigate and punish powerful, connected corporate entities and their staff. Maybe a head, or two will role, but the major conspirators will continue, business as usual.
