I figured Bo was dead by now. He took the money from JBS and ran back and hid out in "Cluckingham Palace" and that's the end of the story! What a legacy he left. One of corruption and greed!

Why didn't Bo help the growers that helped him obtain considerable wealth. Why didn't Bo offer a buyout of the growers' contract like they are doing now? Why? Instead of the growers in the El Dorado area being offered a buyout they received a phone call informing them they were going to be subjected to financial ruin.

There are hundreds of the old growers wondering and worrying every day about how they are going to live the rest of their lives. They have worked hard for years for Bo to live like a King and now they are broke and in debt. Most of them are too old to just go out and get a job. No one wants to hire older workers. Now they are sitting there with no money, either in debt so far they can't see day light or have already lost their farm. And some of those farms have been in he family for years and now gone forever. Health problems and probably no insurance because they can't afford it. Sing Bo's praises all you want to but I sure can't. I just can't understand how any of them can sleep at night. If they had offered a buy out, we could have at least paid our bills and maybe had a little left. Them doing a buy out now just shows that they know they are quilty. They should settle all the lawsuits so the growers acn go on with their lives. Now, I hear, they have even shut the feed mill in Arkansas and laid of employees that have been there for years. We knew they did not care about the growers. Must not have cared about long time employees either. And the lawyers, I imagine the company could have settled with the growers for a whole lot less than the legal fees have cost them. Does that make sense???

Now Pilgim's Pride has been cited by OSHA for repeatedly violating safety standards that endangers the very lives of their workers. It just shows the callousness of the management toward individuals lives and their well being. It is evident this company is propelled and driven with one thing in mind, to make money at any cost - if it happens to be illegal - so what.

Bo should repay the U.S. Government for the $12-million we paid to Pilgrim's Pride growers in five states. Thanks to Obama and former U.S Sen. Blanche Lincoln, taxpayers paid damages Pilgrim's Pride shoul have paid.

In every kingdom there is royalty that enjoy the finer things and there are the subjects or followers that actually put in the hard work to build the kingdom. That's just how it is. All I can say is, it's good to be the king. Quit complaining. And I know nothing about Bo pilgrim other than he doesn't like fat yellow chickens

It's not the hard work to build the kingdom or the fact that royalty enjoys the finer things that is really troubling, it's getting kicked out of your home and losing everything after building the kingdom. The fact that some of Bo Pilgrim's relatives spoke out against the actions of Pilgrim's Pride only reaffirms what was done to the growers was simply wrong. This individual,(Bo's relative) was on the board of directors and couldn't bring himself to be a part of such actions that he deemed wrong. Poor Bo, I feel sorry for him. After striving for so many years to obtain wealth and be known for his Christian faith, he left such a undesirable legacy. Kind of like Moses wandering around in the desert of 40 years only to be denied entry into the promised land in the end. I don't really think Bo intended for this to happen but in reality his decisions caused so many farmers such great hardship. I've often wondered how a person could lay down and sleep at night knowing full well the devastation and pain they created. I've talked with growers from Arkansas, Louisiana, Georgia, Alabama, and Florida and they all have a negative impression of Bo Pilgrim. When that many people have that kind of impression they can't all be wrong. I grapple with the incosistency of Bo being a self-proclaimed man with high moral values operating like a selfish, greedy, money hungry tyrant with no thought about the suffering his actions caused. What has a man gained if he obtains all the wealth of the world but loses his soul? There's one thing for certain, Bo Pilgrim won't be able to take all that money with him when he dies.

Thank you for putting that into the right words for me. He will have to answer for all of this devastation when he faces Judgement. I just do not know how he can live with it now. Must be gone mentally now. And there is at least one of the Pilgrim lawyers, I would like to see when the growers WIN. He is one arrogant smart ___.
