Yet Another Way BP is Allegedly Being Sketchy


Down on the Cajun Coast, frettin' about being followed is usually directed towards the feds. But the Big Oozy introduced a hall of mirrors that shows oil companies on their backs. Today, Al Jazeera delivers a searing report about allegations that BP whistleblowers are being followed and intimidated. Cherri Foytlin, a Grand Isle rig worker's wife who has been outspoken about the effects of the oil leak, reports having bricks thrown through her car, and finding the door of her house open. Some creepy tactics never change.
