B.P. Profit over safety

Both videos below, Deepwater Horizon's Blowout Part 1 and 2, are worth watching. They are an eye opener on how B.P. time and again gave precedence to profit over safety. These videos reveal that B.P is a dangerous operation.

If an ordinary person endangers other people’s lives and the result is death, then he/she might spend the rest of his/her life behind bars. Why should B.P management be any exception to it?

According to this 60 Minutes story another B.P rig, Atlantis, has similar problems. If the Atlantis rig blows up, it would be a much bigger catastrophe than the current one and we know the current one is many folds bigger than the Exxon-Valdez spill. I believe governments and people must be on guard for these deep sea drilling and oil businesses.
