Mary Vivenzi has been fighting since she lost her soul mate Kevin Noah in 2002 and G.W. SCHULZ of the San Francisco Bay Guardian was listening.
He has written a three page article entitled,
"Courting the absurd"
A bridge worker falls to his death -- and the contractor avoids all penalties on a bizarre technicality.
You have to read this article it shows just how many high profile, high capital companies get by with killing and maiming.
Companies who have the money have found a way around the system. I guess it is hard to loose when you have lawyers who helped develope OSHA laws and make generous donations to the judge. The question I would like to ask all those involved is... "How does it feel to know you have helped kill a man and are you willing to have another on your hands in the future?"
