Just a friendly update on American Traffic Solutions and their behind-the-scenes investor which controls two of the Scottsdale firm’s seven seat board of directors.
While ATS is busy draining local economies with snake oil “solutions” to traffic violations, their corporate overlord Goldman Sachs stands accused of heinous acts of profit-driven murder.
In a bombshell editorial from The Independent earlier this month, Johann Hari exposes the conglomerate, which maintains a significant interest in ATS:
By now, you probably think your opinion of Goldman Sachs and its swarm of Wall Street allies has rock-bottomed at raw loathing. You’re wrong. There’s more. It turns out that the most destructive of all their recent acts has barely been discussed at all. This is the story of how [Goldman and others] have caused the starvation of some of the poorest people in the world.
“My children stopped growing,” a woman my age called Abiba Getaneh, told me. “I felt like battery acid had been poured into my stomach as I starved.
Now THAT’s a personal ad: “Single lonely corporation enjoys long walks on the beach and acts of starvation-caused genocide. Quirky side includes voyeurism and government-sanctioned extortion with our family members, Jim and Adam Tuton. Hobbies include selling BP stock right before the largest enviromental disaster in US history. Actually, scratch that long walk on the beach…
In more positive(?) news, Goldman Sachs was ordered today to pay $550 million to settle SEC allegations of widespread financial fraud.
Goldman Sachs and American Traffic Solutions: ideal corporations to immeasurably mingle with police and government operations? What could possibly go wrong?
(Note: We invite someone from ATS to email us a statement in response to this article and we’ll be happy to post it. Otherwise, we’ll accept the silence as agreement.)
