Kent Security of Miami Under Three Investigations

Kent Security of Miami is under three investigations with the National Labor Relations Board.

You can find the pending investigations and some documents related to them here, here, and here.

We'd like to give a mega shout out to all Kent Security employees and former employees who have followed our advice and filed claims when they believed their rights were violated.

The latest charge is due to a frivolous lawsuit filed in Miami-Dade County against us, which will likely cost the company over $200,000 to take to trial. Additionally, we have at least one lawyer on standby to try this case if it goes all the way. It's possible we will have others ready to defend the First Amendment. We anticipate the Streisand effect due to this hare-brained attempt to attack the First Amendment. We predict 40 pages on Google if we take this to trial and plenty of additional publicity.

We are also curious as to what discovery will reveal.

Introducing SecurityLeaks

We've just rolled out SecurityLeaks, which is bare-bones at the moment, but we intend for it to be the definitive guide on Kent Security lawsuits. Though the name is similar to WikiLeaks, we do not necessarily endorse the activities of Julian Assange or even Anonymous, though we feel that the increased transparency they have brought has been beneficial for society to some degree. The aim of the web page is to encourage transparency among security companies as well as worker rights. We believe public safety is paramount and comes before profits.

One thing I do know is that federal agencies, including the CIA, are to be respected, contrary to what Donald Trump feels. From talking to the National Labor Relations Board, I got the impression that they caught onto the arrogance of Kent Security, which may have something to do with their continuous fight with Kent Security regarding the company's controversial class-action waiver. You just don't mess with the feds, and you give them a polite "yes, sir" and let them do their thing. It's just common sense. The same thing goes for police officers when they stop you for a supposed traffic infraction, though they are clearly lower in the totem pole than those who work at the federal level. This is not to say that federal agencies are perfect and immune to criticism, however.

Anyway, this entire project is a drain on our time and energy, though among the benefits it has brought are that it has taught us more about how the search engine algorithms work as well as the rights of workers. Contrary to what Kent Security thinks, there is something noble about being the underdog and having the effect that we have had. This is more a spiritual battle than anything: we know the universal force of justice is on our side, whatever the material differences between us and our opposition.
