As a Florida resident, I really did not appreciate the fact that sleeping Wackenhut guards were being paid to protect FPL’s Turkey Point nuclear facility.

And I did not appreciate the fact that Wackenhut was being investigated for overbilling taxpayers millions of dollars.

And I can’t stress how much I disliked a Wackenhut guard violating my First Amendment rights at a Miami Metro Mover station last May.

So I took great pleasure in producing a video of a group of Florida activists who were also disappointed in out local security company.

But knowing how stubborn Wackenhut CEO Gary Sanders is, I didn’t expect him to resign within hours after I had posted the video on Youtube yesterday.

Perhaps the video was the wake-up call he needed. Enjoy.
