To Juniors family and friends: I Just want all of you who are shocked by some of these racist rants to know that unfortunately there is still a VERY small population of white supremacists in this country. I recently met one and he was pathetic, even had a nose job and was wearing blue contact lenses to look more arian. They are hate mongers who are brainwashed from birth by their ignorant and uneducated parents. Everyone should pity these lesser humans and not engage them on this blog. Don't give them the satisfaction, it's what they want. God will deal with them on their day of judgement, No sin goes unpunished. The great majority of Americans do not agree one bit and despise their disgusting views. So please focus on Junior, a wonderful man who is gone and pray for his family.

Junior has another child, a son in Milwaukee, WI. The child's mother passed away two years ago. His wife was not aware of this fact. But Junior was there immediately following the baby's birth. He is 3 years old now and will be 4 in April - he is being taken care of by other family and is doing well. But this is a loss for him as well!
I know this is a hard time for everyone and I pray for the family and this tragic loss. RIP

It's revealing that this is the only thing you disputed about my comment. I don't care to spell words correctly that mean nothing to me and I have no use for. I will pray for you, that you will repent and change your ways.

every one has their views and opinions this may not be agreed by all, but the fact remains that will be found at the end of all investigation,that he was mudered.The power was off and then he was set to work due to a break down in communication or deliberate act planned by some one to switch the power back on while he was working causing the ill faithal tragedy which result in his death.

My condolences to Mr. Seaton's family.

For those offended by the ridiculous posts, click on "report abuse" and hopefully they will go away soon. Don't reply, "report!"

The sad thing about this work-related accident was that the employer will face a pathetic, measly OSHA fine (probably $15k or less), which will be appealed and then reduced to $6k to $9k. In other words, not only did this not have to happen, but the government ALLOWS it to happen by giving namby-pamby miniature fines to corporations that kill their workers, intentionally or no.

This should be a $1 million fine--no reductions. Perhaps that would make the employer think twice about not a better track record, safety-wise. And, union people, don't start saying "if only he was union...." (in the event that he isn't): Many merit shop employees are trained as well or better than their union counterparts, but high voltage doesn't discriminate--it takes whoever gets in its way.

Ask me, I know....new Walmart construction in IN ended up being the death of one electrician and the last workplace for 2 others who were severely maimed and nearly died. What did the employer pay? Under $10k. PATHETIC!

May God be with every single one of Mr. Seaton's friends and family members during this tragic time. Take the steps to "clean up" the internet by reporting those who are abusing all of YOU.

God bless.
