CEO of Wackenhut Steps Down

The CEO of Wackenhut Corp., which recently lost its job protecting 10 nuclear power plants after guards at one plant were caught napping, has left the company.

The Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.-based security provider, a subsidiary of British based security giant G4S PLC, thanked Gary A. Sanders for his service, but did not say why he left in a press release to be issued Thursday. Grahame Gibson, a board member and G4S's chief operating officer, now has responsibility for the company's North American operations.

After guards at one plant were found to be sleeping on the job last year, Chicago-based utility Exelon Corp. last month said that by July it will replace Wackenhut with an in-house security force at its 10 nuclear power plants.

Wackenhut officials have said the apparent lapses in attentiveness at the Peach Bottom plant in Pennsylvania were "an anomaly." Exelon said it took action even though a review of security at its other plants found "no significant deficiencies."

Since a videotape arose that showed guards at the Peach Bottom plant nodding off, the U.S Nuclear Regulatory Commission last month asked commercial nuclear power plant operators to provide new information about their security practices. The agency in October confirmed guards had been sleeping on the job at the plant.

Wackenhut also provides security, fire and other services to Department of Defense locations in Iraq.

Shares of G4S fell about 1.4 percent to $425.32 on the London Stock Exchange in afternoon trading.

TEXAS, THE STATE THAT BROUGHT YOU YOU THE MODEL FOR THE SORRIEST(WATERBOARDING IS NOT TORTURE!, AND A FUTURE PRESIDENT-AS-GOVERNOR MOCKING A PRISONER ABOUT TO DIE ON DEATH ROW)PRESIDENT IN US HISTORY..GEORGE W. BUSH. WHAT DOES BUSH AND TWC SHARE IN PHILOSOPHIES..? MY GUESS IS THEY WOULD LOVE TO CUT ALL LEGAL CORNERS AS FAR AS WORKER'S RIGHTS, AND EVERY TIME THEY SEND A CORPORATE VENTURE TO IT'S DOOM, AN EXECUTIVE IS CAUGHT AND THE CORPORATION BLAMES IT ON "A FLUKE, A ONCE IN A LIFETIME BLUNDER"! BEEN A LOT OF BLUNDERS" OVER THE PAST 30-40 YEARS..EHHH GENTLEMEN?MIAMI METRORAIL...PADDING PAYROLL MAN -HOURS AND BILLING CITY FOR HOURS NOT WORKED; DANCING AROUND MINORITY AND HIRING REGULATIONS; IRREGULARITIES OF NUCLEAR FACILITY GUARDS' TRAINING AND UPKEEP ALL ACROSS AMERICA; AND HIRING IMPROPERLY SCREENED AND STRESS-MANAGED EMPLOYEES TO MAN OUTSOURCED PRISON SYSTEMS IN A FEW STATES. THESE AREN'T ISOLATED GOOFS..IT IS FUNDAMENTALLY FLAWED PHILOSOPHY AND GREED IN THE OUTSOURCING AND OLD CORPORATE COST-CUTTING SYSTEM. THIS EVIL-DOING SYSTEM PLACES BOTH GUARDS AND CLIENTS AT RISK..IN HARMS' WAY. IT CAUSES JOBS TO BE LOST, TRUST TO BE SULLIED, AND PROMOTES ANGRY EMPLOYEES AND LOST WAGES. THIS FORMAT FOR DISASTER STARTED WITH A BASIC PREMISE..THOSE WHO PAY MUST BE MORALLY CORRECT..WHETHER THE TWC TOOK THEIR PAY FROM EX-DICTATORS, OR FROM PRO-MANAGEMENT ANTI-UNION ( BUST-THE BUTTS OF WHISTLE-BLOWERS!") CLIENTS. IS IT ANY WONDER THAT POST 9-11 SUPPRESSIVE PATRIOT ACT LEGISLATION WAS SHOVED DOWN THE THROATS OF A FECKLESS AMERICAN PUBLIC? THE CORN-FED MONSTER WAS BASED ON THE TEMPLATE OF OUTSOURCING ABUSE AND INTIMIDATION FOISTED ON WORKERS BY SUCH CORPORATIONS AS TWC,,WHATEVER THEY CALL THEMSELVES NOW IS LUDICROUS..FOR THEY OBVIOUSLY COULDN'T PAY-OFF AND PROTECT THE FAMILY NAME FOREVER!THINK OF GEORGE W. BUSHS' "STOP-LOSS MILITARY PROGRAM" ;SENDING OVERSTRESSED SOLDIERS BACK INTO COMBAT WITHOUT REPLACEMENT OR PROPER REST..WHERE HAVE WE SEEN THE MODEL FOR EMPLOYEE ABUSE BEFORE..YEP! THE OUTSOURCING, COST-CUTTING CORPORATE-MONSTERS AT TWC AND OTHER SECURITY COMPANIES OF THEIR ILK AND STRIPE! MAKES ME WONDER..THE MORE I READ, THE MORE I'D BE WORRIED ABOUT TRUSTING MY COMPANY'S SECURITY TO OUTSOURCING SUCH AS TWC HAS PROVIDED IN THE PAST. THE RECORD IS CLEAR.YOU READ THE NEWS STORIES..YOU DECIDE!
