How to Stop Harbor Freight Predators from Being Paid
On January 31, 2017, a federal judge in Michigan overturned the sentence of an Iowa trucking company that had been convicted of killing an off-duty sheriff’s deputy.
The federal judge, William Walls, ordered that the defendant, Harbor Freights, pay $6.9 million to the victim’s family, including a $3.6 million award to the family of the officer.
After the verdict, the company sent an email to its employees stating that it “will continue to fight for justice and hold Harbor Freighters accountable for the death of this deputy.”
The email did not mention that the judge had rejected the company’s appeal and that the jury had found Harbor Freiers culpable in the death.
But in an email sent to all Harbor Freighter employees on February 10, 2017 (see above), the company stated that it will appeal the verdict.
This was the same email that Harbor Freings had sent to employees of other freight companies the day before.
On the email, the Harbor Freages CEO said, “As a company, we believe in the rule of law and the ability of the American people to hold the companies accountable for their actions.”
The message continued, “We will continue to make sure that our employees and their families are aware of the seriousness of this case, that we will continue our advocacy to hold Harbor [Freighters] accountable for its actions and that we continue to stand behind our employees.”
The same message appears in an internal email of the company that has since been published by the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
The email sent on February 5, 2017 said that, “The federal court ruling is just the beginning of a long and painful process for the victims family, and we urge everyone to join us in working with them in their efforts to secure justice and justice for the many others who have been wrongly convicted and/or imprisoned.”
Harbor Freights is not the only company that is paying for the wrongful convictions of its employees.
The Associated Press reported in February 2017 that a Florida-based company that was found guilty of murder and sentenced to life in prison had been paying $7 million in compensation to the victims’ families.
In December 2016, a company called Fidelity paid $4.7 million to a woman whose son was arrested after he allegedly killed a family member while driving drunk.
Fidelity had filed a lawsuit against the city of Fort Lauderdale, alleging that the city had violated her son’s constitutional rights.
In January 2017, the federal judge who had sentenced Fidelity in its wrongful conviction case ruled that the company had violated its duty of care by failing to notify the woman’s family about the alleged wrongful convictions.
The judge said that Fidelity failed to protect the victim and that, given the severity of the crimes the victims had committed, Fidelity did not have a duty to protect her.
The judge also said that while the company “wanted to be responsive to the City of Fort Myers’ request for a reasonable settlement,” it failed to do so because the victims were in a “poor mental and physical condition,” and Fidelity was unwilling to provide the victims with financial compensation.
The Fort Lauderdale City Attorney’s office has not commented on the settlement.
A recent article in the New York Times stated that “some of the most notorious criminals of the last century, including some who are still being tried today, are on death row.”
According to the article, in 1999, a jury convicted a Florida man who was charged with murdering a woman who had attempted to stop him from raping her and who was then shot dead by police.
According for the article about the Florida murder trial, the jury “took a lot of time to find that the woman had been assaulted and that he had shot her to death.
They also found that he acted in self-defense, after he had been beaten by the woman.”
A Florida man was found to have committed a sexual assault on two women when they were 14 years old, and was convicted of sexually assaulting another woman when she was 18 years old.
Last year, a woman in Colorado was found dead after allegedly being sexually assaulted by a man who also committed sexual assault.
The woman’s death led to a public outcry in Colorado after she was discovered to have been the victim of a sexual crime, and to the state of Colorado and its attorney general’s announcement that the investigation into the crime would be expanded to include possible civil rights violations by the man.
In August 2016, an Arizona man was sentenced to death for killing his wife and her ex-husband, who were accused of raping their two children.
During sentencing, the judge said, “It is a matter of national importance that these horrific crimes of abuse be stopped.” He added, “[T]here are many people who are going to go to prison and many people are going do the time for these crimes.
The question is, why
