Just a few weeks after 55-year-old charter boat captain William Allen Kruse was hired by BP to help with the oil spill cleanup that threatened his livelihood and community, he killed himself. A deckhand who worked for Kruse said working as one of BP's "vessels of opportunity" was a stressful and confusing experience. "We're helping cover up the lie," a 27-year-old colleague of Kruse told The Washington Post. "We're burying ourselves. We're helping them cover up the lie that's putting us out of work."
