1069Let's Keep Our Country Great!
- Aug 2, 2007Let's Keep Our Country Great!
I sit here typing this article after viewing the (
www.allaboutcountry.com ) greatest online country music news magazine
in the world, and think how fortunate I am having two careers, great
loving children, a wonderful wife, great friends, fantastic fans, and
country music people who read my articles. The last one was meant to
make you all laugh of course!
I see Trace Adkins Releases First Book October 23rd, great news! Wait
until you read what he says in this new book! He's a lot like me and
other rebels who buck the main stream country sometimes! I wish him
success in his new book!
I had my first book published on July 2005, and one of the blurbs on
the back cover of my book is none other than the president and good
friend of mine of www,allaboutcountry.com, Mr. Bill Hennes! Bill read
my book and was delighted to be on the back cover. The only thing is,
the book is about a subject not about country. It's connected to my
other career, public safety and security for America! What better
career could I have besides country music than trying to keep America
safe and secure! After all folks, country music brings families
together and after September 11th, we all needed to hear the great
country music helping us all to cope with certain realities in
today's life of the twenty first century.
Agian, I am a rebel sometimes when I have to be, and if there is a
subject I know well, besides country music, it's public safety and
security. Since 1968 I have been busy with working this career, and
one thing I know, crime prevention is every American's responsibility!
I guess it's human for people today to be in a make believe world of
their own, safe and secure, families living happy, healthy and
successful. Nothing wrong with a happy family life, we all want such.
True reality of life after September 11th is too much to fathom for
Americans over three hundred million populace. We look at our little
individual worlds as a safe haven far from crime and terrorist
Until someone in our family circle is a victim of crime! Then the
world of reality strikes hard, with no natural affection, love,
kindness, goodness present and panic set's in! Security and safety is
gone suddenly, just like a raging storm! Like a tornado with no wall,
tower, thing or person to stop it's powerful surge smashing your make
believe world to pieces!
The police made their report, after they arrived, responding to a
security department's call for help. They investigate and take
statements from wittnesses (If there was any), then make their
report. They tell the victim/s that they will do what they can to
find the criminal/s involved. That's all they can do. And they are
doing their jobs well. No shame should fall on our Criminal Justice
system's Vanguard, the police. They are a re-active crime control
If the crime was at a Shopping mall, Hospital, University or office
complex, chances are, the corporate owners are afraid the liability
risk is much to high to give their security departments the right
tools they need to prevent such crimes against your family. They
implement a strict policy of hands off, when it comes to preventing
crime! They are told to call the police if there is something that
may cause an interruption in the peace and public safety. The owners
even go as far as telling store keepers in the shopping malls to call
the police directly, and do not call security, for they are wasting
time going through the security thinking that the malls security can
prevent a crime!
However! This entity (Security) is the only entity that has the
before, during, and after the fact premise to be successful in
preventing crime and terrorist attacks. The police are usually at a
scene after the fact! Please, we are not saying the police are not
needed! For they must be in place working with security to complete
the circle of preponderate to fight crime!
So what happens when these sequence of scenes take place at this
present time in American history? we then have in the end result,
many frustrated people! The victim/s, their families, the security,
the police, the owners, the politicians, and the public! For the
crime was not prevented! And then everyone looks at the police and
security, and say, where were you guys?
Does the United States department of Homeland Security operate in
these complexes? Then they to are not at a scene before the fact of a
crime or terrorist attack. Does the Homeland Security department
encourage the owners of these complexes, Shopping malls, Hospitals,
Universities/Colleges and office complexes to give their security
people the tools to prevent crime instead of just responding to these
problems? Do they encourage law makers to change the laws to help
private and governmental security people to prevent crime instead of
acting like police and just respond to a crime in progress?
In escence, we as American citizens continue to ignore facts. Facts
that will hit you right in the face, at any moment! You want more
crime prevention? Then supply the before factor that will altimately
prevent your family from being the next victims in
universities/colleges, hospitals, Shopping Malls and other complexes.
My research that started in 1968, shows that our communities could
benefit greatly if large complexes would take the responsibility of
preventing their own inevitable crime and terrorist attacks! Folks
our front lines are not secure!
We have space age technology today that would boggle the minds of all
Americans! This 21fst century technology is barely used in America,
but, if it was, security would use it to prevent crime! You'd be
surprised how much of this technology isn't being used in shopping
malls, hospitals, universities/colleges and other complexes. It would
put you in panic mode, and I could prove it! I am very concerned when
my family visits these complexes knowing what I do about their
security as it is now. Security at present time will not prevent
In hospitals, there are so many crimes covered up that if you knew
you'd also be concerned as I am. Look what happen at Virginia Tech.,
something I say should never happen, especially when it is proven
that it could have truly been prevented to the degree it did!
I know it is human to live in your family make believe worlds, the
safe haven we all need just to keep from becoming depressed over the
September 11th reality of things. But, when it comes to preventing
crime and terrorist attacks at the frontline level, somebody needs to
do something, and soon!
I know that there are many other security people and police out in
America that sees what I see. Please! Pass this article on to
everyone you can, and maybe, just maybe, we could prevent a family
from experiencing crime!
Preventing crime and terrorist attacks is the responsibility of all
Americans! Especially the corporations that own these big complexes
that draw large crowds! Terrorist attacks will be centered on these
areas! And some entity needs to prevent crime! Not just respond to it!
I pray that the media grabs my article and runs with it so things
change in security for America, before you, and your family
experience crime! My family is dear to me to, and if any of my family
members experience crime, knowing what I know about crime prevention,
it would cut my heart deep! It's like a medical doctor who can't save
his family member at a crime scene because his hands are forced tied!
Everybody worries about the liability risk of any operation. The
Cities worry about their police putting them in a high liability risk
when acting in a pysical way. Shopping Malls and other complexes
worry about their security acting in such a way that it would put
them in a high liability risk and that's why they play it safe
insisting that security have a hands off policy! But, what they don't
understand is, that you could be putting yourself in a higher
liability risk for not putting hands on! For a crime could be
commited before the police get there, after security calls the
police! As time ticks onward I foresee lawyers winning cases against
these complexes for not having security that would prevent crime
against your family while shopping in their mall or place of business.
