Cyber poster this in the news section...but I wanted to have a reference here on the blog as well.
Here is why. Stonebridge got a lot of its freight from a Broker called, "COPESTONE LOGISTICS". Drivers, avoid this broker. I was PERSONALLY promised that I would be paid, and have not been. This broker does a great deal of work with TABs out of Stafford, Tx. TABs is a bulk US Mail
Stonebridge Management Corporation, decided to go ahead and make a weeks worth of payroll last Thursday (they still owe me for 2 more, $2500+), I was smart and went DIRECTLY to their bank and cashed it.

Like many Americans, Heisler felt compelled to take action during a horrific time for the United States and with this flag in tow, he set out for Ground Zero.
