Part 2...Now with the false statements given by Chris Harrelson, James Leslie and Nathan, copies where collected. There have been major questions about these three employees. If Kelvin Jones was so violent, anger, threating and out of control cursing up a storm infront of everyone trying to attack Chris Harrelson, like they put in their reports. Why didn't anyone call the police? As a matter of fact there were three police squad cars at the BP gas station right next door plus several phones in the building to warn someone. You know why they didn't call anyone, it never happen like that, because there was customer in the store listening and watching what was going on that day. Harrelson needed cover from Nathan and James to report false statements to help keep his employment current. As noted in the first complaint, a customer provided his statement for Kelvin Jones after he found out that Mr. Jones had been fired days later from O'Reilly Auto Parts from false statements that Harrelson, James and Nathan provided to HR. The customer states he didn't want to be involved until he heard that the young man, meaning Jones had lost his job behind what took place. O'Reilly Auto Parts ignored the witness statement he provided to clear Jones of voluntarily handing over keys to Harrelson. The customers statement was that he was present to see and hear Chris Harrelson, the man described as the one who asked Jones to turn over his keys to the store in a soft tone as he walking towards Jones meeting up by a green pole and car batteries. The customers also provided in his statement that Harrelson was the person that was following Jones around the store talking loud to Jones while walking behind him. The customer pointed out that Nathan (the blonde headed white guy), meaning Nathan wasn't trying to stop Harrelson from walking behind Jones and that he almost physically bumped Jones behind the counter. They failed to mention this in their statements to HR. Now not only is Harrelson's and James employment is at risk, Nathan's job is on the line for his false statement in trying to protect Harrelson from being fired. One question came up, why was Nathan the manager asked to come to the store to cover the counter out of all people Harrelson needed someone who he could trust to go along with this plot that very day, because of the stack of harassment reports from Jones to HR about Harrelson and James plus the report about Scott Robertson/ James Leslie falsifying a corrective action on Jones once before that the company ignored. So Robertson couldn't be part of it because he was already in the hot seat. Scott Robertson had already collected three first and finals himself for sexual harassment plus the one Mr. Jones reported on Robertson for showing naked photos in the store to Russell Brown and Jones. Harrelson along with Nathan and James that day needed to come up with story for Human Resources, actually Harrelson tried to get Jones that day with his false report. Why wasn't Kelvin Jones fired right then before he left the store? Mr. Jones reported this action taken against him by Harrelson to Tim Shaw of HR, no one replied at all back to Jones. Now things get weird once more, Harrelson needed Jones to help him by taking the keys back after he took them from Jones plus this is a form of retaliation and is against federal law. So a new hired member of O'Reillys shows up the next day at store 1207 and says that he was told to give me the keys back. OH YEA DID I MENTION, KELVIN JONES THE ANGER PERSON THE ONE THEY SAID WHO TRIED TO STAB Harrelson with a screwdriver stated by Harrelson was working the next day. Jones told this guy that the keys belong to Harrelson so give those to him. So after a while pass by Nathan appeared wanting to talk to Jones about taking the keys back, Jones replied to Nathan, the keys belong to Chris so give them back to him because he was demoted yesterday when Chris took the keys from him. Nathan told Jones either you take them back or I'll have to send you home. Jones replied again they belong to Chris, Nathan said well I'll have send you home. Jones says he spoke with Russell Brown for a second and then clocked out and left the store. Jones didn't know at this time that Nathan nor James had or were about to supply Harrelson with false statements to protect him. They did this because they felt if all three stories connected together to support what happen things would be ok. But they gave different stories about what happen...Nathan produce a statement of things that never happen at all, Harrelson produce a statement that was less detail than Nathan of things that never happen, James Leslie wrote a statement totally different than the other two, James statement says that Jones gave Harrelson the keys in a meeting, (the meeting took place in the office) they really have alot of explaining to do. They had alot of issues hanging over Leslie's head putting him in a position to be fired. I think Leslie had no other choice but to comply with whatever they needed him to do to help rid Jones of his employment. Jones states that other employees felt that Charles Holman the manager that was reported at an earlier time for sexual contact with other male employees at 1207 to Ernie Golden, Chris Harrelson and Home Office about his sexual behavior should've been handled with Holman being fired instead of being transfered to Andrew Jackson where he again, meaning Charles Holman, approached the 17 year old male for sexual favors. HOLMAN SHOULD'VE BEEN ARRESTED FOR THAT, BUT I THINK FOR THE SAKE OF O'REILLYS REPUTATION THEY TRIED TO QUIETLY KEEP THIS HIDDEN. WHAT IF THIS WOULD'VE HAPPEN TO ONE THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS, WOULD THEY HAVE KEPT QUIET ABOUT IT? THIS GOT OUT SO QUICKLY THROUGHOUT DIFFERENT STORES ABOUT WHAT CHARLES DID AND WHO PLAYED A PART IN COVERING UP WHAT HAPPEN. Upper management didn't care for Jones talking about this criminal sexual act with other employees. Jones felt being black working for O'Reilly Auto Parts was a challenge, because it felt as if blacks weren't promoted in certain positions or given proper raises to advance in the company like white employees were. Alot of employees Black and White knew that blacks weren't being treated fairly but didn't say anything about it. Jones states that recordings, witnesses and documentation supports his federal lawsuit of racial discrimination, sexual harassment, harassment and retaliation against O'Reilly Auto Parts. The federal lawsuit no.# CV-10-JEO-2958-NE...The EEOC CHARGE NO.# [protected]...The 2nd retaliation charge number EEOC CHARGE NO.# [protected] write a letter to the EEOC in Birmingham, AL under the Freedom of Information Act to collect both copies. O'Reillys position statement of the claims filed states that Jones never complained to anyone about anything. Contact Jones for copies of emails and faxed information sent to Ernie Golden, Tim Shaw, Ted Wise, the company president and Human Resources over a two year period of time. Part 2

    I sure wished someone knew of an attorney that would take the case of sexual harassment in Texas. I would file so quick it would make O'Reillys head swim...
