Blackwater guards pumped steroids?

    Blackwater guards allegedly pumped steroids. A ring of prison correction officers was busted for steroids in Florida. Police officers all over the country have been busted for steroids. Who's next?

    "The reality is that Blackwater has indeed fired people for steroid use, so they're on clear notice that there's steroid use," Burke said. She said Blackwater has marketed the idea "that their people are kind of tougher and bigger than anybody else," and has turned a blind eye toward "serious, repeated situations of excessive use of force."

    Fen--it's more like "No interest in the actual story, nor the poster, nor the subject of steroids if mentioned by the poster."

    Well, this paragraph caught my eye:

    The lawsuit also accuses the North Carolina-based military contractor of hiring ex-Chilean commandos who were barred from security or military work in their home country after admitting to human rights violations, and of hiring mercenaries -- a term the company rejects -- from a variety of countries.

    Isn't free enterprise a wonderful thing?

    Cannot express my utter contempt and revulsion regarding that organization's operations.

    Silly. It's an example of private enterprise doing better than the government can. You see, the government has to worry about how they treat people. These guys just fire away, even if it's at a car full of little, old ladies. Tell me which is easier? And tell me who can teach that better than Chilean commandos?

    They lost the game of extreme paintball to decide that.
