Florida men convicted for passing off cheap body armor to U.S. government

Breaking 911:

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – A federal jury convicted two Florida men yesterday on charges of conspiracy, making false claims on the United States government, and wire fraud.

 

According to court records and evidence presented at trial, Dan Thomas Lounsbury, Jr., 50, of South Palm Beach, and Andres Lopez-Munoz, 35, are both executives of Tactical Products Group, LLC (TPG), a Florida-based manufacturer and re-seller of various products to military, law enforcement, and private security clients. Lounsbury, Jr., is the founder, owner, and CEO of TPG, while Lopez-Munoz is TPG’s Vice President for Sales and Federal Contracting. In 2012, TPG was selected as a sub-contractor on a contract to provide certain goods, including 10 sets of hard body armor plates, to the United States government.

  1. All of the top 10 contractors are for-profit companies, and all of them due to military spending. The top 10 dominate, receiving 30 to 40 percent of all federal spending.

    War Lords.

  2. Body armor is classified type I to type VI. With a few subcategories in between. The ratings indicate what round they should stop. I never seen a Solicitation for body armor specifying what it’s made out of. And I’ve seen a few. I’ve seen weight specified. It sounds like these clowns were falsifying certifications. Pretty stupid to think the Military wouldn’t find out.

  3. “… charges of conspiracy, making false claims on the United States government, and wire fraud.”

    But it’s perfectly legal for the United States government to conspire (as in Gruber, Reid, Pelosi, and Obola), make false claims (as in ObolaCare), and wire fraud (as in the NSA) against the citizens?

    Something stinks …

  4. Send them 2 to NoKo and they can
    wear their armor and Little Kim
    can shoot them with a 40MM anti-aircraft gun.
