I've never seen a clamp like that one. It may be common in cable TV wiring. However, it looks like to me that the clamp was made to be installed that way. I wonder if this method is more common than we know?

I also noticed the wire being connected to the equipment grounding conductor was colored black rather than green or bare copper

Those clamps are designed for the #6 bare ground conductor. no that is not their purpose... it is made by T&B under their Sachs line.

How does a company just NOT NOTICE that some idiot they've hired is doing crazy things??? That would be a hard thing to overlook when checking over someone's work, and surely they would check a new guy's work at least a coupla times before having him out representing the company...

And as for Rogers, "we always regret when there's anything that is either dangerous or even inconvenient to our customers"... well gee, the fact that they "ALWAYS REGRET" it just makes it all better doesn't it. *puke* They don't exactly instill confidence that it's a rare situation.
