This is how many of the supposedly higher-ups look at people they manage. As if money was more important than a human life. If they can't manage a business properly, get out of the business, and if they repeatedly ignore the regulations they should be forced out by the government.

Thanks for the petition -- I've thought from the first day of the explosion that at least the head of the company should be prosecuted. Massey had numerous safety violations including disabling warning systems. The labor force in their mines were treated as if they were a disposable commodity.

The vile and greedy always look out for only themselves!!!!! They need to be removed from positions of power.

NOTED & SIGNED: With all the execs nationwide who have been downsized out of jobs, and with all the trained/talented younger people needing work, here *have* to be smarter, ethical and more forward-looking people ready to do the work. The former-executive jerks should be making license plates in PRISON.

Signed the petition with comments, and noted.
Those responsible for correcting the problems that caused the explosion and deaths of 29 fathers, brothers, sons, grandfathers, uncles, must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. We are now a third world country where corporations can get away with massive damage because of neglect and are permitted to skate, just like with BP. People who speak out will eventually be punished. Sickening. I believe they should be in prison for homicide.

Signed. This doesn't make sense. This is like allowing a convicted murderer or pedophile to run a daycare or kindergarten!

Of course, these irresponsible mine executives will get new jobs.
Big Business always rewards those who try to $crew the public. Obviously, if they $crew the public, they are saving money for the company.
If anyone cannot see where their priorities lie, they are in deep denial.
Isn't it 'peachy', when executives make the money and the miners take the risks.
AND, to think they don't want the workers to have unions, which would give them a smidgen of safety factors.

It seems America is becoming a country that doesn't make the rich take responsibility for their screw ups. Do the dead guys get to keep their jobs? BP, Wall St.,any one rich and it's a double standard. We better fight for our rights before we lose them. Republicans are the most guilty!

Signed and noted, the mining that is going on in WV is a tragedy to the environment, especially Mountaintop Removal. 500 mountains in the Appalachian Mountains have already been destroyed!!!
