The Red Neck Mafia

From Holden:

Here’s a bizarre story, read the transcript of Amy Goodman’s interview of Eli Chavez on Democracy Now. Mr. Chavez’s son Ron, a Halliburton employee in Iraq, was severly beaten by a group of fellow employees known as the “Red Neck Mafia” who apparently run Halliburton’s portion of the Baghdad International Airport. It’s not clear at this point whether Ron Chavez was beaten because he is Hispanic or because his efforts to strengthen security at the airport made him unpopular, but Eli Chavez is trying to get the Justice Department to do something about the beating.
