Scott Walker is a reporter for New Orleans' 6WDSU news. He was heading for one of the PUBLIC beaches to interview cleanup workers when he got intercepted by a private security company called Talon Security hired by BP to keep the public away.
Yup. BP has apparently hired mercs. The link includes links to YouTube vids and other nifty shit, including the reminder that this isn't the first time BP has hired private security like this.
Oil's well that ends well, right? Not this time.
