You folks wonder what happened to Jermaine Swafford? He was on his fast

Hunter Harrison use to degrade Mr. Swafford on conference calls and
intentionally call him Jerome amongst other things. Unbeknownst to Mr.
Harrison, Mr. Swafford was secretly recording all his conference calls
with Hunter and other managers. One day, Hunter had just finished his
