I have an interesting question for all of you members of ATS.
Would You Accept Illegal Power If It Was Offered To You?
What I am referring to here is the easy road to power but in order to get it you have to surrender your ethics, morals, and beliefs and basically
become a sell-out to an Administration.
I am not referring to the Bush Administration, nor the Obama Administration, because this thread is directly related to a life experience where I was
asked by a hospital Administration to do something that did not sit right with me at all and I passed the test in my eyes, but the hospital did not
like it at all.
I used to work as a Security Officer in a hospital, and I will not name it, but was asked to do something I thought was highly questionable after a
new manager came up after the Administration had fired our previous Security Manager for no other reason than money.
And the Security Manager being fired had to do with money because there were twenty-four other managers fired, simultaneously, six months prior to the
event I will explain.
The new manager, a seemingly nice person, asked me to watch a certain nurse because she was reported to have been sleeping during the course of her
shifts, multiple times, according to my new manager, no documentation to provide evidence to me, and I was asked to do it without assistance of other
security, and as well not to ask around of the other nurses because she might find out she was being watched.
I was given two weeks to find her sleeping on the job and to report directly and only to my manager.
I asked about ten different questions so that I could define exactly what I was being asked.
Since I knew we had proximity badges, which would allow us through doors, I asked my first questions about this, why were those not utilized to track
her location throughout the hospital.
My manager looked rather nervous that I knew how this system worked.
She lied to me, telling me that the system was not set up like this, and I know that's not true due to understanding the system is a test platform
for the coming R.F.I.D./bio-chip implants.
My next questions was whether I could see the the nurses time-logs, time she clocked in and out.
A usual request, to corroborate information towards assisting myself in doing a more thorough job.
My other questions were along those lines but more or less just defining those questions better.
I was denied access to any further information which might assist me in furthering this investigation.
We were the only two present at this meeting as well, no documentation whatsoever to prove I was doing something at the behest of a supervisor, to
cover my behind, and protect the process of investigation.
Now, I am someone who was taught to always do the right thing, strong ethics, strong morals, and strong beliefs, if you've seen anything of mine on
ATS, you will understand I hold criminal actions by those in power in complete disgust.
I am as well someone who is extremely quick on picking up things when people are trying to get one over on me, or pull the wool over my eyes.
I have previously mentioned this story over on this thread, you can read more details there.
What Would You Do For A Million Dollars?
I am now however doing a thread specifically about this topic because I am curious as to what others might do in a similar situation.
I had been handed nothing more than a print out of a picture of the nurse with nothing written on it but the print out of her name, but nothing that
could be traced back to my manager, like I said, no documentation whatsoever.
I began to do what I was asked, this being third shift, and I began thinking about different things I had heard throughout the hospital prior to this
event, and remembering as well about the twenty-five managers being fired, not missing anything.
See, the nurses and some of the other staff, are Union, protected against wrongful termination.
I very quickly figured out through my own investigation that what my manager wanted me to do was find her sleeping on the job, or "find her
on the job.
See, I had noticed for quite some time, this nurse was never working in the same station night after night, and I had asked her about this one time,
and her comment was since she was a senior nurse, she was allowed to "float floors"
, meaning switch floor assignments.
See, my manager had not known I usually begin asking questions, when I see things going sideways, or at least not in this instance she didn't.
When I notice patterns changing, I take strong notice, because there is always a causation for this, whether it is just a need for different shifts
covered, or something deeper going on.
Would You Accept Illegal Power If It Was Offered To You?
I found out during the course of my investigation, through open-source intelligence gathering techniques, that the nurse was coming up for her union
contract negotiation, and the hospital wanted to find a reason to terminate her, because being a thirty year veteran nurse, apparently she was coming
up for a sizable raise.
I could have gone straight to their Union members with this, but did not.
This is when I decided I had been asked, to essentially, become a financial assassin for the Administration.
This would have more than likely lead to me getting a management position.
This is of course exactly why this new manager got into her position, because I put two and two together, and I ask questions because I love to learn
things, especially how to improve, fix, or stabilize a bloated bureaucracy.
I had already done this quite a few times prior to this incident, when this manager had first come on board, and she had only asked me for advice on
how I would change the process of moving psyche patients more quickly from the Emergency Room up to the psyche facility, due to the process taking
forever, and she implemented about 95% of my recommendations.
My prior manager and the Security Sergeant had apparently been discussing that I was always trying to streamline things, because I saw through the
flaws within the system as it was currently set up, bureaucracy is stale to me, and as well after a while when bureaucracy sets in, sediment sets into
people's leaded bottoms, and apathy sets in and kills momentum.
By the way, I had recently heard, through various sources, since I am no longer employed there, that the Administration is going after her, because
she knows far too many secrets.
When I reported in that I had not found the nurse sleeping on the job, and explained my process of investigating it, leaving out the details which
would have alerted my manager that essentially I thought she was corrupt as Hell, she began screwing with my availability verses scheduling, which
lead to an eventual termination of employment.
I could sue, and prove it, and get unemployment, but that's not what this thread is about.
It is instead about whether you would surrender your ethics, morals, and beliefs, to get power.
I know exactly how the system works, how to get power, both ethically and unethically.
I always choose ethics over becoming a criminal, always.

Would you make the same decisions I did, or chose another path?
False Flag Operator, Become Sheep-Dipped Or Wolf-Dipped, and Become A Puppet
Would you remain a sheep, become a wolf, of be a shepherd, and lead the way by example, even if it was leading by example and walking out the door on
an opportunity to become a powerful person?
In my humble opinion the easy road to power is the first step in the path towards corruption.
Do not get me wrong, if it was my business, or I was hospital Administration, I might have to make similar decisions, but I would have put that nurse
in charge of training new nurses and opened a nursing school through a college in a collaborative effort to improve the community.
