From the moment I heard him speak, I knew this mine boss was a piece of shit.
The MSHA report heavily criticized Bob Murray's volatile behavior during the crisis, especially at daily briefings for family members, where he "frequently became very irate and would start yelling," even making young children cry, it said. He told family members that "the media is telling you lies" and "the union is your enemy."

It took intervention by Sheriff Lamar Guymon to finally keep Murray out of the family meetings.

It all reminds me of that movie Harlan County, USA. Miners, anywhere in the world, have a horrible job, and their union hasn't always been on the up and up, unfortunately. But this kind of thing, where the disaster stems directly from company stupidity, is criminal.
