Did a New York company violate tenant rights?

The Tropicana Mobile Home Community, located in Moscow Mills Missouri, primarily consists of residents who are either retired or on a fixed income. Recently, and abruptly, the trailer park sold the Southern portion of its park. Under Missouri SB 753, the seller was required to give all tenants notice prior to the sell, they failed to do so. The resulting aftermath of this sell has created an uproar within the affected community.

Upon completion of the purchase, residents were met with notes, which were hung from their doors in plastic bags. The notes simply informed the tenants of the sell. Though the first letter was questionable, it wouldn’t be the only letter delivered in such format. A second letter informed the residents of rent increases, upwards of 36%. The letter continued to inform the residents that they were required to sign a new lease, one which has many residents questioning the legalities. Finally, the letter informs the residents that they are to provide a copy of their home deeds to the new owners, Jones Estates.

Upon lease signing, many residents have noted that the lease was backdated. Any resident who wished to review the lease was immediately threatened with eviction. In one instance, a resident was threatened for refusing to sign her husband’s name to the lease, who is currently overseas on deployment. When refusing, she too, was threatened with eviction. With threat, and under duress, many of the residents have signed the questionable leases.

According to another article, written by ‘Lincoln News Now,’ which will be linked below, one individual with cancer faces the possibility of losing her Emotional support dog. Although the dog has been signed for by her doctor, Jones Estates will only recognize a letter that is signed by a psychologist, potentially violating the ADA. If the previous act isn’t a violation, the fact that the company asked for medical documentation, without a doubt, is.

The company, as of this time, has remained silent. As a platform, we attempted to join the Facebook group, intended for residents. While we got no verbal response, we were denied and banned from the group by its admin, who currently manages the park. While there is speculation behind this, allegedly the employees having signed NDA’s, preventing them from speaking, it still leads us to question why we would be denied speaking to the park’s other tenants.

While there is much more to this story, much of it currently unfolding, it is clear this company is possibly after one thing: their homes. From everything we have seen thus far, there are violations within sections 441, 700 and senate bill 753 of Missouri’s revised statutes. As of this time, it is unknown what the final outcome will be. We will continue to update this story as it unfolds.

OCJDC article Follow-up (Evidence gallery)

On Facebook, our platform received a message from an individual claiming to be associated with the agency, to which we previously wrote about. If you haven’t read that article, we’ll give you a quick recap into the tragic events that unfolded for a mentally disabled individual. Bear in mind, that we have learned additional details since the previous article, they will be included in this one.

To summarize the situation, a detention officer with autism was placed onto the overnight shift. Initially, he felt that it would be more suited for him, he could get better adjusted, and so on. Immediately following this switch, a night supervisor appeared to make him a target. According to the individual, she would berate him in front of the residents (children who are in Juvenile custody,) as well as in front of other officers. Eventually, due to the hostile work environment, created by his supervisor, he began reaching out to individuals who outranked her. Below are the emails, that apparently don’t exist, if we were to listen to an alleged employee of this detention center.

Though redacted from the above image, the unedited version shows that this email was sent to a Major (yes they apparently use military rankings.) We asked about the response email to which we have been informed that one was never given, as far as he knew, it had been ignored. This leads us to email number two.

Upon not receiving any form of feedback, he proceeded to go up the ranking system. The above email was sent to the detention center chief, whom we mentioned in the previous article. Again, there was no response. He presumed that it was ignored for a second time. With that, he went outside of their ranking system.

On 4-26-2022, he proceeded to send this email to the HR manager. The date is important to mention, as it plays a critical role into a potentially illegal termination. Though there was no immediate response, on 5-1-2022, he had gotten a phone call from the detention center chief. The Chief requested a meeting between him, HR, and the employee. Here’s what we now know took place during this meeting.

Initially, they discussed his concerns and problems. However, near the end of this discussion, they took an abrupt change. According to the former employee, they proceeded to gaslight him, asking him if he may had done something that would have warranted the treatment he had received. Now, we as a platform, wish to go on record and say this: “THIS IS NOT OKAY! ABUSE IS NEVER ACCEPTABLE REGARDLESS OF WHY IT HAD TAKEN PLACE!”

From this point, he learned that an officer filed a complaint against him. The reason? He made her uncomfortable. Alright, so we’re going to interject right here. If you know an individual with autism, then you already know how difficult social situations can be. In other words, it’s not surprising that he would make somebody uncomfortable. What is shocking is the fact that she, right after he began sending emails off, felt the need to report him. We can speculate as to why. However, we’ll refrain from doing so.

So, as we stated, this horrible excuse of a meeting had taken place on 5-1-2022. Again, this date is important. By the time this meeting even took place, the former employee informs us that he had placed an application with the county jail. He informs us that this was done due to the lack of response from those to whom he sent emails. In short, he felt as though he had no support.

It’s important that we mention that apparently all county-based agencies utilize the same emailing system. This, as with the dates, is also important to note as you are about to learn.

On 5-5-2022, the former employee received this email via his county inbox; it came from the county jail. Now, if you read the previous article, 5-5-2022 is a very critical date. Within three hours of seeing this email, the detention chief pulled this man from his post, escorted him out of the facility, and terminated his employment as they stood in a parking lot. Yes, you read that correctly. The man couldn’t even give the former employee the respect of terminating him in his office; he had to walk him outside, in public. Furthermore, according to the employee, the weather wasn’t exactly sunny, as it had been raining for most of that day.

While their employees may claim that these emails do not exist, we do have the unedited versions of these. We know the names of who received them, we know the email addresses to which they were sent. This timeline, in our opinion, shows a clear indication that a man was purposefully targeted by his supervisor. When he attempted to report it, he was purposefully ignored until he proceeded with placing job applications. At this point, they did a gaslighting, under the guise of a meeting. They not only justified the abuse he was alleging, but they also went as far as to target a social issue that directly stemmed from his condition. Finally, when another agency contacted him, in retaliation OCJDC terminated him on the spot.

The termination not only makes it look bad for this man, who may now fail at obtaining this potential job, it was also illegal. In the United States, there are retaliation laws. Even if the State is a “Right to work,” or “At will” State, they can only fire you for legal reasons, a classification that retaliation does not fall into. Given the above timeline, the dates that we’ve seen on the emails, and the fact he did lose his job, retaliation does appear to be the reason for the end result. We are assisting him in acquiring an attorney. This form of injustice simply cannot be allowed to stand.

Did OCJDC retaliate against former officer?

This is an article that we have been contemplating for sometime. When the, now former, officer initially contacted us, we weren’t completely convinced that he was being targeted. However, since that time of initial contact, we can no longer deny that possibility. We are not confirming that he was targeted, though it does now seem plausible. Instead, we will simply provide the timeline that was presented to us. It is important to note that he provided this timeline live. This means that as they were unfolding, he presented them to our platform in hopes that we would present them at the appropriate time. That time has come.

Around mid April of 2022, the contacting officer had been switched to night-shift. At this point, according to him, things went from going very well to very poorly. Withing two weeks of this switch, he made his initial contact with us. At this time he had made a complaint regarding his supervisor. In his complaint he had noted that specific officers were treated very well while others were treated poorly. He followed this up with complaints of derogatory statements that had been made specifically at his expense. At this point, WoC noted it for potential reference but made no indication of interest.

On 5-3-2022 the officer made contact with our platform. In this contact he noted that the abuse had only gotten worst. As a result, he had filed an informal complaint against the supervisor, which was discussed in a meeting. The meeting consisted of an HR representative, detention chief Bruce Henley, and himself. During this meeting, he had learned that one of the night officers, who were on the “favorites” list with the supervisor, made a claim against him. The unknown officer made sexual harassment allegations and overall discomfort around the officer.

We proceeded to follow this claim through with questions, as this is a serious accusation. He provided us Facebook conversations between him and the officer, some which were taken on the day she filed the complaint. Needless to say, we are comfortable with our belief that her claim was knowingly false. It is, at this point, that we began compiling his information as it was clear to us that he was, in fact, being targeted.

Following this meeting, the officer was placed back onto the swing shift (3-11pm.) He noted that he couldn’t shake the feeling that something was about to happen, he would be proven correct.

On 5-5-2022 WoC once again heard from the officer. This time, he had been escorted outside of the facility and terminated. He explains that no reason or explanation was given for this action. However, when we look at this timeline of events, the reason becomes apparent: retaliation. This man, who simply wished to perform his job, had not only become the victim of verbal abuse, he was terminated for reporting it. Though we hate to see this sort of thing happen, it’s far more common than one may realize. For people such as this former officer, we will happily stand with them while ensuring that deeds like this don’t go unnoticed. As it currently stands, we have not heard anything from the detention center. If we do, we will add it to this article.

Independent “media” platform spreads false information

It goes to say that journalism has always been a challenging game to play. Providing accurate information, changing mistakes, being threatened, you name it and it happens. When you’re a freelance, or independent journalist, the stakes are even higher. In most cases there are no big companies to have your back. You have to distribute, write, and build your platform from the ground up. If you’re lucky, you’ll get a small team to help you. With all of the challenges that come with this field, one would think that being factual is a top priority. Afterall, it’s your platform’s image and reputation on the line. For the platform we’re about to cover, these things don’t appear to matter.

Freedom Public Press is a rather questionable platform, at best. Though it was founded in February of 2019, it only maintains roughly 508 followers. There is a reason for this. According to their Facebook reviews, they stand at a 1.5 rating, something that is extremely low for a media platform. But how is it that this independent journalist came to fail in this way? The answer to this very question is exactly what we’re here to discuss.

It’s Lead, and only team member, Shara Michelle, has made many calculated mistakes over the years. Though we have all made many mistakes, our platform included, we were able to bounce back. However, unlike her, we have always upheld one critical key: To provide truthful information to be best of our ability and to correct information that we get wrong. Furthermore, we have also been known to take in the suggestions of our followers. Though this information about our own platform seems trivial, it’s actually going to play into one of the things that has lead herself to stagnate in the virtual world.

Opposing views

As a journalist, the ability to accept opposing views is almost a critical trait to have. It doesn’t mean you can’t debate the view; it does mean that you allow the view to be spoken in a public platform. Freedom Public Press, on the other hand, has never understood the concept. Instead, their solution to any opposing view is to simply remove the comment. Not only does this eliminate transparency, but it also brings forth a lack of trust from those who may follow the platform. For any person who wishes to do freelance journalism, especially in written articles, this is a guaranteed way of ending your career. A truth that is openly displayed by their follower count.

Presenting information

The spreading of information is exactly what we do in this trade. Though this is often a passion, it is one that can be destructive for a platform if they’re not careful. Regardless of the subject matter, a good journalist can present information without a personal bias. Though we have opinions on many of the things that we write about, we try to maintain an objective outlook. This means that we need to be able to write without our personal bias or emotions being involved.

For Freedom Public Press, this has never been done. In fact, the platform has a prolonged history of simply fabricating information for its viewers to read. Naturally, this tactic has brought it a lot more harm than good. In one recent post, for instance, the platform is quoted to have said the following:

Does Meko Haze- Always use criminals to do his dirty work so they get the harassment charge? Stay tuned

Freedom Public Press: January 14, 2022

Although we have not found anything that would substantiate a question of this sort, we did find something else of interest. As it turned out, the lead “journalist” Shara Michelle, appears to have a personal vendetta dating back years. More disturbingly, what we found, was that this wasn’t the first time she had openly targeted, or spread outright slanderous information, about journalist, “Meko Haze.” Naturally, her post created a backlash of opposition, which she promptly deleted.

Outside of this, it appears that the entire platform was created solely for one individual case: Jamie Johnson, whom we have previously covered on this platform. Outside of that, it appears that they either share information from other platforms or share links to their YouTube videos, which we have no intention of promoting here due to their already questionable reputation. Outside of these things, we didn’t find much on the platform of notable worth.

Summary

If the intent of Freedom Public Press was to gain followers, it’s abundantly clear that it has failed. With emotional rants, outright slander and false information, and so on, the platform made many mistakes that stunted its growth. When mistakes were made, they didn’t do the responsible thing: retract the information and correct it. Instead, Shara stuck to her guns, as one may say, and effectively brought her own platform down. Deleting criticism is never good, though she has classified much of that as “excessive trolling.” When we viewed the comments that were remaining, yes, we did find trolling. However, we also found people calling her out.

The simple fact is this: when a platform destroys its own image, the trolls are going to come. That’s just a given. It is the job of any administrator to make a determination between who the trolls are, removing them, and who is simply being critical. In this aspect, she failed to do that, marking everybody into the troll category; this doesn’t work in the long term, it is only a temporary solution that will eventually backfire. For her, that is exactly what happened. Once this sort of backfire occurs, it’s virtually game over unless you rebrand yourself and learn from your mistakes. However, because her reputation is equally destroyed, she would have a very difficult time in doing that.

Man defends children from predator: Facebook’s response is appalling

It’s an all to common trend that we see online. Child predators who utilize social media as a means of targeting children. What is equally disturbing is how the social media giant, Facebook (Meta,) responds to those who defend against these individuals. For one Facebook user, however, the situation went further than just the social media site. The predator showed up at his house, unexpectedly and uninvited. So how does Facebook relate to a predator showing up to a man’s home? Before we get into that, let’s first go into the events that unfolded prior to the man’s account being “restricted” by the platform.

“Something felt off to me…”

According to the family, the registered sex offender, Lonnie Green had befriended the youngest adult sister. Though there is not much information as to how they met, the family did implicate Facebook as the method. At this time, neither the sister nor family, were aware of the fact that the man had just been placed onto the sex registry just months before. Though he was actively around children, he at no point, disclosed this information. However, that did not prevent the family from eventually finding out.

“When I met him, I don’t know if it was my law enforcement training, but something felt very off with this man.” The primary source informed us. He goes on to tell us that initially he began watching Lonnie, whom he repeatedly caught staring at his young nieces. “It was pretty screwed up, I would watch him as he’s watching them, he would see me and immediately divert his eyes to the horses.” Upon doing the background check on him, it was discovered that Lonnie had omitted some information about himself. That information was the fact that just a few months prior, he had been placed onto the Oklahoma sex offender’s registry for sexual acts with a minor under the age of 12.

Needing to alert his family, who was still oblivious to this information, he made a post onto Facebook. However, months later, that post has now gotten his account restricted. Why? According to Facebook, speaking out against a convicted pedophile, who is actively placing himself around small children, is considered “hate speech.” Meanwhile, the predator is allowed to maintain an active account, in complete violation of Facebook’s own terms of service. Why is this? Good question let’s discuss that very subject.

Facebook: The double standards

This situation isn’t the first of its kind, when it comes to Facebook. In fact, it happens more than what people may be aware. According to Facebook’s own policy, which we’ve posted below, a person who is on the registry is not allowed to have an account, and yet we see that happen on a near daily basis. When these accounts are reported, it seems that Facebook has taken the stance of punishing the individuals who report these accounts. But it goes beyond that. They have also apparently taken the position of restricting accounts who try to alert others of a predator’s presence. Let’s ignore the fact that this man now has access to countless children. Afterall, Facebook does. We can even ignore the fact that this predator utilized Facebook to befriend a mother, gain access into her real life, giving himself access to her children, and then proceeded to gain access to other children within a family. Again, Facebook clearly is ignoring this fact also. But why?

It’s no secret that there are a few progressives who wish to make pedophilia a recognized sexual orientation. Given the extreme views that Facebook has already demonstrated, it’s not to farfetched to believe that just maybe, Facebook shares in this ideology. After all, they’re apparently classifying it as hate speech to speak out against these people. Meanwhile, Facebook’s very own policy clearly states:

Convicted sex offenders aren’t allowed to use Facebook. If you’ve seen an account that may belong to a convicted sex offender, pleaseĀ report it to us.Make sure you provide one of the following types of information with your report:

http://www.facebook.com/help/210081519032737/?helpref=uf_share

Regardless of this policy, Facebook continues to create a dangerous and hostile environment within its platform. While the site consistently violates its own policies, it’s not a problem that has gone unnoticed. In fact, because of Facebook’s lack of responsibility toward its users, independent social media sites are on the uprise.

What happened in this situation is appalling, at best. The fact that speaking out against a predator, who is actively trying to gain access to children, as hate speech simply cannot go unnoticed, nor should it be ignored. While the individual only got restricted for a day, that isn’t the point here. The message that Facebooks conveyed in this action, matter. Worst, it’s as we’ve already stated, this isn’t an isolated event. The bottom line is this: From outer appearance, it looks as if Facebook is willfully protecting child predators at the expense of your right to protect your family.

Windows 11: Why you should avoid it

If you’re operating a newer model computer, there is a possibility that you’ve gotten the “update to windows 11” notification. We got this update and against our better judgement, updated one of the War on Corruption computers to this new operating system. What transpired, as a result of this update, was completely unexpected. Being that our platform has always been about protecting and helping the general population, we’re going to give you a first-hand account as to why you should NOT get Windows 11. Let’s review.

Windows 11 issues

At first glance, the new operating system looks fantastic. It’s sleek, it’s fast, and it appears to be more stable than its predecessor. Of course, if all of this were true, we wouldn’t be steering you away from this new program. Microsoft released the new OS as a test, essentially. While releasing betas and various other test programs is common, one wouldn’t think that the consequence would cost them their entire computer. However, that’s exactly what is happening.

Various reports have been made in regard to Windows 11 crashing computers. regardless of these reports, Microsoft appears to have taken the “don’t care” route in dealing with this problem. In fact, those who call the company find that their customer service is lacking. So what exactly is this operating system doing to computers?

Initially, the effects aren’t immediately noticed. What you may begin to notice, however, is that the computer begins to operate more slowly. As time progresses, programs begin to freeze or simply crash. This is just the beginning of the damage that is being caused by windows 11. You’ll then begin finding that the entire computer freezes, forcing you to reboot it. It is, at this point, the real problem begins to show itself.

Upon rebooting, one of three things will happen: the computer will load to a black screen, the computer will be stuck on the splash screen, or the infamous blue screen of death. Each of these problems are your indicator that the computer has suffered damage, resulting from this new operating system. However, it doesn’t end there. Over time, you’ll find that you are rebooting it multiple times in hopes that it will actually load to the desktop. This hope is short-lived though.

If the compute is able to load to the desktop, you’ll immediately notice that programs have become unstable, they will crash, freeze, or the entire computer itself will begin to freeze. Moving forward, various drives on the computer will begin to malfunction. USB drives, in our experience, were the first to show this issue. If you have an external drive, the computer will fail to read that it’s connected. This is an indicator that serious damage has now been done to the computer.

While you attempt to do repairs, you will quickly discover that no repair you do will work. If anything, they only expedite the issues within the computer. At this point, you may consider calling Microsoft Technical Support. Don’t bother, you are wasting your breath.

Microsoft technical support

When calling a support number, you expect to have somebody who is trained within their respective field of work. With Microsoft, this doesn’t seem to be the case. Making various calls, in attempt to get assistance with our crashing computer, we found that their agents didn’t seem to have any idea of how to even begin helping. Instead, they directed us to jump through various loops, which had no merit into the actual problem.

Once they realize that they can’t do anything, they will have you revert the computer back to Windows 10. Don’t hold your breath, the damage has already been done. Upon reverting, you’ll have a breath of air believing the problem is fixed. It’s not. The instability will continue until the computer simply can’t take anymore and crashes. Meanwhile, the tech agents will simply brush you off. Don’t expect any further assistance from them. At this point, should you call again, they may schedule a call back. This is great, right? No. The fact is, they have no intention of actually calling you back. Meanwhile, you’re left with a paperweight that costs hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.

Review

Microsoft’s lack of assistance, knowledge, and integrity with their own program is deplorable. Customers who rely on their operating system are not only left in the cold, but their own employees are simply unable to assist. It’s not that all of them don’t want to, they simply lack the knowledge and training. For this reason, computer owners find themselves completely alone, unless they’re able to shovel out hundreds of dollars to get the computer to a shop.

While Microsoft seems to be ignoring the problems that this new OS has created, those who have been victimized by this unstable, horrific excuse of a program, simply can’t ignore it. But for us, this war isn’t over. While we’ve taken to pushing this article out, we still plan to deal with Microsoft themself; we may add an addendum to this article with those results. However, our primary concern at this point, is encouraging our followers to avoid this software at all costs.

Former employees reach out: A review into Transco Lines, inc.

Since the time of our previous article, in which we exposed a trucking company, we had gotten several complaints about others. Being that we believe in your right to support your family without being abused or treated poorly, we are going to look at a complaint that immediately caught our attention. The complaint we received earlier today was against Arkansas based company Transco Lines, Incorporated (TLI.) Before we get into the actual complaint, we want to point out that we have received complaints about this company prior to the one we will primarily be discussing, thus we are going to include the previous complaints also.

Transco Lines INC., is a company based out of Russellville Arkansas. However, that isn’t the location to which this article is about. Instead, we are going to be discussing their Maintenance terminal, which is based out of North Little Rock. Transco Lines is the “sister” company of Riverside Transportation, a company based in Kansas City, Kansas. While they are separate entities, as we have been informed, they operate using the same systems, programs, and even share trailers.

Looking deeper into the company, one would believe it to be a rather decent place of employment. Of course, if that were the case, we wouldn’t had composed this article. Upon looking into the reviews, we found some common themes: Pay, hostile work environment, abandoning drivers who leave the company, and behaviors that demonstrate narcissistic tendencies. To one such comment, the company had made the following reply:

Good morning. Can you please provide us with your first and last name? Our team would like to gather your contact information from our system and then follow up with you on your experience.

What makes this reply something worth nothing? If you’ve looked at critical reviews, especially on Google, it’s not uncommon for companies to leave replies such as the one shown above. However, there is a consequence to providing this information. As we have already seen, especially within the commercial driving industry, replies such as these open doors for retaliation. In some cases, we have seen these companies attempt to “black-ball” the individual who left the review. Does this pertain to the company to which we are discussing? Let’s get into the complaints.

Hostile work environment

Among the emails we have gotten regarding TLI, the hostile work environment takes precedence. While the company claims to have a zero-tolerance policy, from the common theme that we’re seeing it appears this policy does not apply to the office staff. Among the various complaints we’ve seen/obtained, the office employees are known for creating a hostile work environment. This fact is especially true if a driver is terminated or resigns.

Multiple individuals have told us about an intimidation method that TLI utilizes when a driver is no longer employed with the company. According to these individuals, an employee of the office will silently follow the former employee around until they leave the premises. If the former employee says anything about it, the TLI “grunt” denies following them, although they continue to do so. The employee then begins to make derogatory statements towards the former employee. As if this wasn’t enough, the employee will only cease once the former employee has gotten into their vehicle.

While the company will maintain that this is not creating a hostile work environment, that would be far from the truth. In fact, they are utilizing a method commonly known as “intimidation with presence.” The basics to this is very simple: You intimidate the person into leaving by quietly following them, making the person uncomfortable. That method, within itself, is the creation of the hostile environment that the company claims to have zero tolerance for that other drivers in their terminals may be witness to. But the accusations don’t stop here.

Deceptive/Unethical business practices

Naturally, given what we’ve investigated thus far, this shouldn’t come as a surprise. The company has accusations going back years. Of course, from what we’ve covered in the past, it seems to be a rather common trend within this specifically industry. The accusations that fall into this category range from leaving drivers stranded, deceptive business practices, to providing misleading information. Though there are many other claims we could cover, these are the three we’ve decided to focus on.

The idea of being stranded far from home can be overwhelming at best. However, this is an all to common reality for those who keep America supplied. While many of us could lose our jobs, we can simply drive home. For these individuals, however, the reality of losing a job means being stuck in a city hundreds of miles away from their homes. This is because the companies refuse to help in getting them home. The worst part of this reality is in the fact that this practice is completely legal. TLI, from countless reviews and the emails we’ve received, is among the companies who allegedly utilize this practice.

When it comes to deceptive business practices and false information, one would think that a simple misrepresentation case would motivate against this practice. From what we’ve investigated, that does not appear to apply within this industry. According to one of the emails provided by a former employee, the company charges their drivers for their drug testing, physicals, etc. In the trucking industry, drug testing is a requirement for starting a new job. This is an aspect that neither the company, nor the driver, can control. So why is TLI charging their drivers for a test that is required? The simple answer to this: money for the company at the expense of what should be their most valued employees.

A company wanting to cut costs isn’t a new concept. When that company wants to forward their expenses to its employees, that’s where the problem begins. There was a time when companies could get away with this sort of behavior. There was also a time when companies could abuse their employees without consequence. However, those days have long since passed. With the modern world of technology, these employees now have a means of fighting back. A simple review can go a very long way into making or breaking a company’s reputation. Whistleblowers talking to independent media platforms can have the same effect.

While this is the second company we’ve decided to cover, primarily due to our existing knowledge of this industry, it isn’t the last. In our fight to help employees fight back against tyrannical companies, our war in this arena has just begun, and our war isn’t isolated to just this industry either.

Company offers support to driver: This is what they did

When a company advertises itself as being one that supports its employees, one would like to think that they actually mean it. However, this is very rarely the case, as one individual recently learned. The trucking company, Freymiller Inc., is one that often advertises itself as being a company that is “built by drivers, for drivers.” However, this doesn’t appear to be factual. We have covered this toxic industry in the past. From horrific abuses to not paying drivers, we’ve seen it all. What we haven’t seen, however, is a company that offers an autistic employee a “safe place” only to further trigger, and then terminate, them. What exactly happened? Let’s talk about it.

War on Corruption obtained a variety of documents and recordings from the former employee. According to the documents, his wife had been transported to a local hospital, where doctors didn’t offer much hope in her survival. The reason for this transport: epilepsy-related seizures. Not knowing whether or not his wife would survive, the employee was placed on “emergency medical leave,” and this will become very important shortly. While trying to make medical decisions and visiting his wife who was suffering from a condition known as Postictal psychosis, he was actively working with the company to get a local job. At this point, the company had not made it known that they intended to terminate him.

It is important to mention that this employee is on the autism spectrum. The company operates a group, to which they said he would be allowed to post. However, upon doing so, they responded to their own initial suggestion by banning him. According to the former employee, he was already triggered and felt at this point he was being targeted by the company. He proceeded to reach out to the company’s official Facebook, making the suggestion of autism training. Again, they responded by banning him, furthering his already existing triggers, proving the company was, in fact, targeting him.

Upon release of his wife from the hospital, he proceeded to go back to the company in the attempt to discuss a local job. “What they told me was that there were no open positions,” a statement we confirmed via an audio recording he had sent to us. What we do know is that Freymiller lied. How do we know this? This is an image sent to us from their very site, taken moments before the writing of this article.

Now, you recall that we mentioned his emergency medical leave would be important, correct? This is where that is going to apply. Upon telling the former employee that there were no open positions, they then proceeded to terminate him, all of being secretly captured on an audio recorder. They attribute his termination to the very condition that ultimately sent his wife to the hospital. At this point, there is no indication that he was released from this medical leave, though he did express that he would be returning from it. Essentially, he was illegally terminated from his job.

The meeting was conducted with an HR representative and an Operations manager, though the former employee states that he was trying to speak to the owner but was effectively barred from doing so. The two representatives, through this termination, had accomplished two things: the first is getting our attention so that we may spread awareness about companies like this. The second, effectively putting themselves into a potential legal situation. Currently, we are unclear as to what the former employee plans to do, though he has expressed an interest in filing a case against the company. Should this occur, we will update this article.

Alaska airlines targets Trump supporter

Recently, we have seen some rather disturbing trends. Rather it be the vaccinated vs. the unvaccinated or the mask mandate feud, division is one thing that seems to be going strong. For an Alaska airlines passenger, she was not targeted for what she did, but for the style of mask she wore.

Recently, a young woman boarded an unknown Alaska airlines flight, wearing a ‘Trump’ themed mask. While everything began with no issue, it wouldn’t last. A flight attendant, who appeared to have a problem with the mask, requested that she change it. Though she did nothing wrong, the woman complied. However, the event didn’t end there. The flight attendant returned with another, requested the woman the passenger leave the plane. Why? “The crew were uncomfortable with her being onboard.”

Video uploaded to TikTok showing two attendants removing a woman who had initially boarded wearing a Trump mask.

The passenger, seen in the above video, had initially worn a Trump themed mask. Apparently, this was a problem for the flight attendants. From what we have gathered, she was asked to remove the mask, let’s keep in mind that she was not in violation of their mandate. Instead, she was specifically targeted on the grounds of political affiliation.

In a later video, she announced that she did make contact with Alaska Airlines. Their response was, due to lack of a better phrase, “kick rocks.” Our platform also called the airlines and was given a similar response. This form of behavior shouldn’t be tolerated. The airline has not only destroyed their trust and credibility, they also managed to make themselves look like ‘thugs’ in the process.
