Department of Justice: Bring BP to justice for the deaths of eleven men on the Deepwater Horizon!

On April 20, 2010, eleven men died on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. To date, nothing has been done to hold responsible those whose decisions led to the unnecessary deaths of these fathers, brothers, and sons; this is nothing short of a travesty!

The Seaman's Manslaughter Statute is a seldom-used law that could provide at least a modicum of closure to the families of these eleven souls, bringing up to 10 years imprisonment per person killed, in addition to financial penalties.  It is PAST time for the Department of Justice to prosecute and bring justice for the deaths of these eleven men!

This petition is in memory of Gordon Jones, Dewey Revette, Jason Anderson, Shane Roshto, Stephen Curtis, Blair Manuel, Karl Kleppinger, Adam Weise, Don Clark, Roy Kemp and Aaron Dale Burkeen.

      Why hasn't this happened yet? Eleven men died on that oil rig because of negligence and mismanagement. Their families need to know that the responsible parties will be held to account.
