Gerald Eastman (The Last Inspector) Legal Defense Fund Started.
The "Gerald Eastman Legal Defense Fund" account was just set up at BECU (Boeing Employee's Credit Union) today. You can now voice your support for me and/or your disgust with Boeing's and the acting King County Prosecutor's decision to try to make me a convicted felon and send me to prison for trying to end the fraud I witnessed at Boeing that places you and your loved one's safety and security at risk, which is documented in part on this site.
You also may want to donate because you want to ensure whistleblowers like me cannot be similarly railroaded in the future by this precedent setting case. Many have seen this case for what it is--an attempt by Boeing to use the King County Prosecutor's office to strike fear in the hearts of those who have witnessed similar Boeing fraud, but have not yet came forward because they are concerned about what will happen to them and their families if they do.
You also may want to donate if you are a current Boeing employee and you want to ensure Boeing's attempts to initiate reprisals against employees who bring forward ethical and legal wrongdoing both internally to the "Ethics Department," or externally to the relevant investigatory or oversight agency, are not successful.
I know many people at Boeing want to work at an ethical company and don't want to have to work in areas where they have to "look the other way" from unethical activity and fraud in order to continue to remain employed. Many of you who have complained to the Boeing Ethics Department (especially about management wrongdoing) and have had your cases rubber stamped "unsubstantiated" despite what you thought was bulletproof evidence will know what I mean. A donation to my legal fund and a resulting successful end to these retaliatory charges will go a long way in reforming Boeing internally in every area, but especially in the area of Quality Assurance. Boeing will have to cease to rely on its currently powerful influence on public officials to keep itself from accountability for its own illegal actions and to retaliate against citizens like me that attempt to end that corruption and restore the people's representatives to representing the people, and not just Boeing's interests, which are often opposed to the public's interests, as in this case. They will have to reform Boeing internally instead.
Please donate as much as you can. The only real quote I got from an attorney was for a $100,000 retainer before he might take the case. My family, already suffering for over a year because of Boeing's unjust actions, will have to become homeless to raise just a portion of the money it will take to defend me from Boeing's attempt to even further retaliate against me and my family. My retirement money is almost gone after a over a year of bridging expenses with that money. What little we have left will be needed to get us by for the next few months.
I haven't had the time or skill (a lot of time and technical skill seems to be needed) to set up an area on my site where people can use debit cards, Paypal, etc. yet. If you are kind and generous enough to donate, please mail your donation as follows:
Gerald Eastman Legal Defense Fund, Acct# XXXXXXXXXX Boeing Employees Credit Union (BECU) P.O. Box 97050 Seattle, WA 98124-9750
You can donate in any method you wish (checks, Money Orders, Cashiers Checks, Cash, etc.).
Of course, I will appreciate any amount you want to give. Your generous (in any amount) donation will not be used for any purpose other than for my legal defense from these unjust and retaliatory charges. Please donate today so I can be free to continue to try to protect your safety and security when the officials that are supposed to don't.
Today's Daily Report Quote:
This quote is also from my addendum (supplement) to my first report. (Continued from previous day's quote. These quotes should explain more why I dubbed myself "The Last Inspector". Another item the FAA chose to ignore, at your peril.):
There is a problem with all of the above besides the obvious great danger to the public that results from basically uninspected clearances between critical tubing installations in the airplanes we build using our extremely fallible "calibrated eyeball" inspection method. It is that I, the "thorough inspector," can easily find discrepant tubing installations, using my "calibrated tooling" inspection method, virtually every place in the factory I am transferred, as I have detailed above, simply by using this minimum, I think, inspection method. These are installations that have gone out to service for perhaps hundreds of times in their discrepant state, as they cannot be built any other way due to the design will not allow them to be built with the minimum required clearances, no matter how much the tubing is preloaded. This makes me a threat to delivery schedules, as due to my integrity, if I know something is discrepant, I will write it up, most likely, less the few instances I have described above that will result in my downgrade to freeway off-ramp panhandler status. So maybe the above examples of tags I wrote are just another reason I was put in my "make work" job for approximately eight and a half months, and one of the reasons (my QA supervisor) had his meeting with me accusing me of "not supporting delivery schedules."
