Miami Lakes is a funny place:Two weeks ago, models and Germans show up. This week, Osama himself. Well, in a manner of speaking. Melvyn Miller, who owns The Protective Group, a manufacturer of defensive Kevlar-type vests for police and military use, was horrified to learn bin Laden had been caught on video (released by the Pentagon), wearing a flak jacket that could have been "one of ours."
"I find it abhorrent that the man who is trying to kill our [boys] is using our products to protect himself," Miller said. On the other hand, Miller's no fool. He said he could "understand" that if a man has a $25 million price tag on his head, "I would want to obtain the best protective product possible, too."
