LP Posted At 23:29:26 01/17/2001 I go again.....telling ALL cashiers(grocery checkers particularily) that just because they may not be *hurting* now, does NOT mean they won't down the road. It took almost 15 years for it to catch up with me(muscular-skeletal, that is) and have now PAID the price of UNSAFE working conditions. Yep...I wrote a LONG letter, along with 3 of my fellow employees to OSHA, telling them, EMPHASIZING the damage the *checkstands* and system was creating.Did they come out and CHECK out the complaints of 4 people in ONE store? Yep....about 6 months later, stating they found no justification for the complaints. They did "recommend* 3-4 areas that could use "improvement"??? They video-taped 2 checkers performing *normal* duties for 20 minutes. Wrote their report, sent ME a copy and that was that!CASE CLOSED. Do you think this store has made any improvements for the *safety* of their supposedly "valued" employees? Hell NO! And they won't because they simply DO NOT CARE. I am injured. My loss of earning power is gone. My life, like many others has been turned upside down. Our cries for justice will not be heard on deaf ears, and there is plenty of *those* around. What is the answer? I have written everyone I can think of in terms of the *political* circle in the state of Washington. I offer my thoughts and opinions, I TELL people how I FEEL, and HOW it has affected my life. Somehow, someway....*WE* have to end this madness. I tell everyone I meet or KNOW about the dangers in checking groceries, and to BE NICE to that person behind the counter, because, even though they are smiling, they are more than likely in PAIN, one way or another. This goes for ALL people in the work force who do repetitive work, deal with the public, lift, bend, twist, squat and stand all day at their jobs. Do we have a right to be informed?? YA DAMN RIGHT WE DO!!!!!! LP

A Chiropractor lost his license to practice in Washington State, suspended in lue of an investigation,
for the sexual abuse of a minor child in the office.
This same Chiropractor moved to Alaska and was reissued a license to practice at the same time- without a back ground
check being done...
This man sexually molested my son for a period of 5-months. I reported it, the police did an investagation-
my 8-year had to undergo a SART examination, a glass-warrent phone call was even done during the course of the
so-called investagation.
I was ordered into silence- the Chiropractor had time to sell his office and practice, and his home, and throw a going
away party. I had to remain silently in the background.
Now- three years later, the prosacuting attorney claims there is enough evidence to permantly take away his license to practice
in the united states, but not to charge him criminally.
He is a proven repeat offender in two states, and not required to be on a sex-offender list.
He is a child sexual preditor- and a free man, stalking about the world, full of children.
UNFAIR? any comments or suggestions?
