    DHB Industries Ex-Chief David Brooks Looted Company, Jury Told - Bloomberg.com

    Brooks and Hatfield allegedly lied about inventory of “Interceptor” combat vests that were shipped to the U.S. armed forces and falsely inflated the company’s value and their own stock, prosecutors said. The trial in federal court in Central Islip, New York, will last several months, the U.S. said.

    “This is a case about the naked greed of two people, Sandra Hatfield and David Brooks, and the lies and the fraud that they used to satisfy that greed,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Lunger told jurors yesterday in his opening statement. “In the end they lied in order to push up the price of the company’s stock, then they sold their stock for $190 million.”

    GLENDALE, Calif. - The family of a 17-year-old girl who died hours after her health insurer reversed a decision and said it would pay for a liver transplant plans to sue the company, their attorney said Friday.

    Republicans keep saying, "Leave corporations alone. The protect our interests. They give us jobs. They love us."

    Until someone can grab a buck. Then, it's every man for himself. It's all about the almighty buck and only the buck.

    Yet from the previous post of some posters on this board you should understand by now that this was the people not the corporation.

    If only we had government health care.....then the little girl would never even have the option of a liver transplant from the start.

    No, she'd have been on a waiting list when she died.

    Some posters love to compare apples to orangutans.... it makes sense to them but leaves the the rest of us understanding only that the poster is, in fact, stupid.

    Well, she was killed by a "death panel". That's what insurance companies are. They stand between you and your doctor.

    You write that like it was a "good" thing.:(

    The "fact" is, she's dead. That is not a "BELIEF". The child is dead. Is it still "funny"?

    According to the Supreme Court, "corporations" ARE "people".

    Nope, actually I don't lie. Idiot.

    In countries with socialized medical care, people die on waiting lists.
