From Chip Bok:
EPA official Al Armendariz washed his hands of his Roman centurion approach to oil and gas executives.
“They’d go into a little Turkish town somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw and they’d crucify them,” Armendariz continued. “And then you know that town was really easy to manage for the next few years. And so you make examples out of people who are in this case not compliant with the law.”
