I work for the big E..
I'd love to see how you come to the conclusion of it being a white collar crime.
I see it as a case of several factors coming together at the right time to cause a catastrophe. I'm not sure it was a crime though. I mean, what laws were broken? Enlighten me.
its not like a white collar crime persay like fraud or something, but it is corporate irrisposibility and lack of punishment, the courts just ruled this year on the fines, in the beggining the fines were like nothing. also if they knew that they were gonna be held accountable for billions and billions of dollars of damages they would make dam sure thier captain wasent a freakin drunk and there were more safteys in place. for example thew use of double hull tanker ships which prevent disasters like this. its not that exxon did it by purpose its that the didnt do enough to prevent it.
