Alarm Veteran "Demands A Criminal Investigation" Of UL

By John Honovich and Brian Rhodes, Published on Oct 18, 2019

The Interceptor's Project pressure against UL continues to rise. Following Keith Jentoft's allegation that "UL Has Blood On Their Hands", Jentoft has provided a letter from 36-year alarm veteran Peter Goldring sent to UL.

Goldring declares that it was "reprehensible that UL would try to sweep this matter under the rug" and that he will "demand a criminal investigation".

Inside this note, we go over the demand, the full letter, analyzing its claims and positioning.
