Inadequate Body Armor

For aWol himself! Irony of ironies, I guess. The now unfortunately-named Second Chance Armor of Central Lake, Michigan (near Charlevoix) has been selling bullet-"proof" vests which have apparently been deteriorating rapidly, possibly contributing to the death of a California police officer. During the two years when Second Chance knew they had a problem but failed to tell anyone, they sold $53,000 worth of body armor to the Secret Service for use by aWol, Laura, and others.

While the wealth never seems to trickle down very far, sometimes the blatant incompetence and criminality of 21st-century America trickles up to the top (where it is clearly right at home). To quote Nelson Muntz: "HA HA!"
