How do you ignore Dale's congressional testimony about how he would have taken the shot if Lon had not?

How did Jody get hired in the first place?

Is the person who hired Jody still at Troy?



ETA: Thank you for your response, I will never buy another one of your products. I will also do my best to make sure everyone I know does not buy your products either. You guys spent more time giving out half-assed statements, and backtracking on them over the last few days than I could even think was humanely possible. You treated your customer base like mindless idiots. So, is this your "official" statement? Or will there be another one in a few days?

Good to see Troy post a statement in GD and follow along with its customers interest.

Not sure how/why this whole clusterfuck got started in the first place, but glad to see they are learning from this mistake.




Troy, do not let this happen again. Not a good move.

Thanks for at least making the statement. I have several of your products and have been happy with their performance. I won't be selling any of them but as of right now I'm holding off on any future purchases.

I have tried to keep up with this situation with the info that has been available.

I do wonder if things would have kept going along in your company like they were if none of this info would have been discovered.

Agreed. Respectfully speaking, Troy can make their business decisions as they see fit, and I can make by buying decisions as I see fit.

NO MORE TROY PRODUCTS FOR ME. EVER.
The danger is not Barack Obama but those who elected him. It will be easier to undo the follies of Obama than to restore good judgment to the masses. We can survive Obama, who is merely a fool. We are less likely to survive the fools who support him.

Just hoping they will move in the right direction though. I personally have lost support with Troy and will cease further transactions with the company until major changes have been made.

There are hundreds or thousands of people who are qualified to advise on critical incident management. You just happened to pick the one with the worst reputation for your industry. Since you choose to retain him, your customers will decide if that was the right choice.

That still doesn't answer the first question. Its next to impossible to watch the hearing and come to a different conclusion. There was one way for them to attempt to save face. Troy didn't choose that route.
