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.
