BP Doesn’t Want You to Film Them, OK?

What more is there to say? The oil spill is a disaster and BP are jerks.

Watch the above video as Drew Wheelan, conservationist coordinator for the American Birding Association, tries to film BP’s offices in Houma, Louisiana — from across the street.

Wheelan: “Am I violating any laws or anything like that?”

Officer: “Um…not particularly. BP doesn’t want people filming.”

Wheelan: “Well, I’m not on their property so BP doesn’t have anything to say about what I do right now.”

Officer: “Let me explain: BP doesn’t want any filming. So all I can really do is strongly suggest that you not film anything right now. If that makes any sense.”
