“Navy officials stopped paying for her storage in 2010 and told the West Bend company it could sell off the goods - though the Navy bureaucrats and even the storage business could have easily learned that Roberts was deployed and protected from such an action.”
The navy itself set this in motion. This is awful. The military owns plenty of land. Storage should be handled in house and not out.
Exactly. It would also cost them (us) much, much less.
Navy on the hook, too? Why? Because this idiot reporter wrote the following line without attributing it to the storage company’s attorney as to why his client is blameless:
“Navy officials stopped paying for her storage in 2010 and told the West Bend company it could sell off the goods”
Good grief. Use some common sense. I would bet when you whip open your parked car door and ding the car next to you; it is the other guys fault for leaving his car to close to where you would be parking 20 minutes later...
