FTA:" the message included racist slurs, swearing, threats to "sic" the Sault Tribe to start a "good old fashioned Indian war...one of the men says they should have said f**k you. We're gonna stick this to you, tribal."

Other racial slurs in the voice mail include calling Tribal members "redmen" and "them (expletive) Indians

Wow. Stay classy, America.

One of the men on the recording alluded to calling Natives "redmen" because it is an offensive word that people "can't" use.

That's right. Use Redskins instead.

Heh. Had that happen to one of our employees. He called a client, and left her a message on her voicemail. When he went to hang up the phone, he accidentally hit the "speaker" button. He then (thinking that the phone was hung-up) proceeded to talk a grip of shiat about this woman...who just happened to be an on-air reporter for one of the local news programs, and it all got recorded by her voicemail. Oops!

"There's no malice on Kirk's part," Ross said. "We really want to talk to the chief."

Yeah the racist diatribe and threats of war and signal jamming weren't made with any malice.

And it's recorded. Have fun in court. Of course, the tribes don't have good history there, but hey, great publicity for the company. Should do wonders for them...

"We'll just put this antenna on that dungheap over there..."

"That's our Sacred Burial Mound."

"Well, this is our Sacred Antenna.  It's shaped like a cross. Ain't it a Beaut?"

"No, it's a Mound"

"Well, it's raht purty, too.  Can yuh move it?"

"But, why?

"Railroad's coming through!  Right now!"

[Steam locomotive sound, coming to a halt]

"Ahem.  My Fellow Redskins: Speaking for the Great White Father in Washington, let me say that we respect you savages!  For you God-given ability to adapt and survive in whatever God-forsaken wilderness we put you in.  Out There.  Sign here!"

"Threats about scrambling cell phone signals" sounds like an invitation to the FCC to jump in, too.

A while back the CEO of the local monopoly cable company had a "disagreement" about whether he deserved his DWI arrest and had the entire cable-based communications shut down for the police department.

He was house hunting in another state whereever he got a new job the next day.

Good for those Indians. They should not relent until the white man pay with more rifles, firewater and squaws.

threats about scrambling cell phone signals at the Tribe's Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort.

I don't think a good number of people would mind this one too much.  Except maybe all the college students that frequent the place.

I don't think the threats were credible nor were they intended to be heard outside of the other people in the room.

It's certainly bad, but he was just pissed off at the time.

I'm pretty sure we're not close to 350 million just yet.  Last estimate is in the area of 318 million.

Because this is a corporation we're dealing with, odds are at least even the threats were left intentionally to try to intimidate the Indians, but with deniability.

"How could they be real threats when they weren't even supposed to hear them? It was just trash talk among buddies!"

At this point it looks like it has backfired anyway.

Here's the smart move for the tribe though: use this as an excuse to demand an exorbitant rent for placing the cell tower--with a long term contract with no wiggle room, no way out and fee and cost shifting if they have to sue to collect.

And the company has to vest the guy who made the threats with the authority to enter into the contract on its behalf (if he isn't already), and he personally has to sign it.
