Peach Bottom Whistleblower Profiled in Patriot News

The Harrisburg Patriot News published “Sleeping Called Common at Peach Bottom,” Saturday, October 20, 2007, an article on the whistleblower at Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station. Kerry Beal, a client of the firm, was the man who filmed the security guards asleep on duty between March and August of this year, and has since kept fighting to see change.
The article gives insight into Beal’s life and reasons for stepping forward. “He saw it [guarding the plant] as a statement of patriotism and his devotion to his community and family, inspired by the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorism attacks,” the article says. His gratification quickly dissipated, however, when he witnessed the unnerving practice of the other security guards catching up on their sleep while on the job. “‘Oh my goodness, we’re not talking about a nap,'” Beal said, “‘these guys would be asleep like 40 minutes, easily, an hour.'” Beal has withstood threats and anonymous calls to his house, and although it’s unsettling for him, he says he’d do the same thing again given the chance.
