    Living here in the shadow of our nation’s great Capitol in this fine Federal City, my neighbors and I enjoy the peace and serenity of a tightly enforced “no-fly” zone. By “peace” and “serenity” I mean that we are under near-constant assault by helicopters everywhere whapping just over our rooftops. Sometimes they are orange, sometimes green, sometimes they are blue with an orange stripe. And, yes, sometimes they are even actual black helicopters flying just overhead. I have even seen them ride over my little house with a guy tricked out in tactical gear hanging out the door holding a...

"They have inmates coming up to them and telling them exactly where they live. That's not acceptable to me," Falco said, according to Newsday.

  • Newspaper hires ARMED guards to patrol its headquarters - days after listing names of nearby gun

    The New York newspaper that sparked controversy after publishing the names and addresses of nearby gun permit owners is now taking up arms in an apparent response to threats. The Journal News has reportedly hired a team of armed guards to patrol the paper's headquarters in West Nyack. The paper caused a stir on December 23 when it listed thousands of pistol permit holders in suburban Westchester and Rockland counties just north of New York City in an interactive map on its website. The Rockland County Times reported on Tuesday that Journal News editor Caryn A. McBride hired gun-toting security...

    National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre on Friday dismissed calls for increased gun control in response to the Connecticut school shooting, calling instead for Congress to support a plan putting armed police officers in "every single school" in America. In an impassioned speech, marking the NRA's first in-depth public comments since the Newtown tragedy, LaPierre pointed the finger not at gun proliferation but violent video games, the media and the absence of armed guards at schools. He argued that if banks and members of Congress can have protection, schools across America should be afforded the same security. "It's now time...

    Bob Costas' gun control rant was bad but made worse by one key point -- he lives much of his life with the benefit of armed security. (i.e., men with guns). If you've ever been to an NFL game this point is academic. The number of armed policemen you pass between the gate your seat is incredible. And if you get behind the scenes, in certain corridors, the armed presence can be just as strong (or stronger). ... Remember when Rosie O'Donnell spent what seemed like years on her gun rants? Those rants lost their effectiveness when the focus turned...

    Last May, while criticizing Gov. Rick Snyder’s proposed budget cuts to schools, Ithaca Public Schools Superintendent Nathan Boortz asked Snyder to “make my school a prison.” Boortz wrote a letter to the editor saying prisons enjoyed more luxuries and received more funding than public schools in Michigan. But Michigan’s teachers probably wouldn’t want to make that transition considering they make on average about $12,200 more a year than prison guards. Michigan’s 5,000-plus prison guards make an average of $50,803 in 2009-2010, according to a Freedom of Information Act request. The prison guards’ salary information contains gross wages, including overtime. The...

    Sacramento - US prison guards have shot some prisoners while breaking up a fight involving 50 inmates at a California prison, corrections officials say. Inmates stabbed each other during the fight, and some employees suffered minor injuries as they intervened. The outbreak was in a maximum security area of the California State Prison, Sacramento. About 50 inmates were involved and an unknown number of staff were injured, said Terry Thornton, a spokeswoman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. "We don't have a firm number yet. At least nine inmates have been transported to local hospitals for treatment of...

Channel 10 reported that one of those holed up in the building, the chief security officer in the embassy, had asked the prime minister to be sure that if the incident ends badly, his parents are informed in person and not by telephone. "You are an exceptional human being", answered Netanyahu....

  • Unemployment Offices To Add Armed Guards (Indiana)

    INDIANAPOLIS -- Armed security guards will be on hand at 36 unemployment offices around Indiana in what state officials said is a step to improve safety and make branch security more consistent. No specific incidents prompted the action, Department of Workforce Development spokesman Marc Lotter told 6News' Norman Cox. Lotter said the agency is merely being cautious with the approach of an early-December deadline when thousands of Indiana residents could see their unemployment benefits end after exhausting the maximum 99 weeks provided through multiple federal extension periods. "Given the upcoming expiration of the federal extensions and the increased stress on...

    SEATTLE – Three unarmed security guards stood by and watched last month as a 15-year-old girl was punched, knocked to the ground, kicked in the head and robbed in a downtown Seattle bus tunnel. The guards' actions during the brutal attack — captured on surveillance video — have prompted a review of the policy that unarmed, civilian guards call police and not try to stop fights or crimes. Surveillance video first aired by Seattle's KING-TV this week shows the attack at Westlake Station on Jan. 28. The victim appears several seconds before her attackers and sidles up to the three...

    Ten members of a suspected Islamist terror cell, said by MI5 to be plotting to blow up a shopping centre and a nightclub in Manchester, had been granted permission by the Home Office to work as security guards in Britain. The Pakistani students — who were never charged for lack of evidence — were arrested over an alleged plot to bomb Britain last Easter. Police believed they had conducted “hostile reconnaissance” of the Arndale and Trafford shopping centres and the Birdcage nightclub. It has now emerged that in the months before the alleged plot, the men were given licences to...

The prison, located close to the PRT compound, has become an important project for the team due to activity this summer. "We had seen the prison have some real troubles this summer," said Lt. Col. Andy Veres, the PRT commander. "Some of the trouble had been from the inside and some from the outside, so we thought it was important to...
