Beaumont fed prison-made combat helmets recalled

This is disturbing on several levels. Tens of thousands of combat helmets sent to our troops are being recalled because they are substandard. They are made locally at the Beaumont (Texas) federal prison through UNICOR, a.k.a. Federal Prison Industries. The Newark Advocate reports that they failed tests during a rare but “worst-case scenario” test when hit by multiple gunshots at a specific angle. There are so many things I would like to know about this story, some of them have to do with our local media.
