Originally aired: Thursday, December 6, 2018 -- 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Narrowband Land Mobile Radio (LMR) networks and user radio equipment have been the cornerstone of mobile communications for First Responders for decades. The trend from traditional analog to more robust wireless broadband networks in recent years has improved the overall accessibility but questions remain on whether the new networks can provide all the required capabilities First Responders need to do their job.

Increasing demand for bandwidth intensive applications such as video, advanced mapping and analytics, alongside critical voice communications has been driving adoption of broadband LTE cellular networks, such as FirstNet.

Join our panel of industry experts for this insightful 60-minute on-demand webinar as they discuss the critical differences between LMR networks and LTE networking, how these technologies can successfully co-exist, and explore the future of critical communications for First Responders.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Current and future industry trends for LTE and LMR technologies
  • Challenges and obstacles with the convergence of technologies
  • Real-life examples of successful hybrid communication strategies for First Responders
  • Recommendations for future proofing your agency; adoption of new technologies and how to bridge the gap

Occupy Sympathizer Tweets 'Kill a Cop Or Two'

March 19, 2012  | 

A Florida restaurant manager caused an uproar on Saturday, when he sent a tweet sympathetic to Occupy protesters advocating cop killing.

On Monday, Rusty Braxton complained that he had received several death threats and said the tweet was a misunderstanding, reports the New York Daily News.

Braxton posted the tweet at about 11:40 p.m. under his Twitter handle "smackema1" on Ustream during a live feed of Occupiers attempting to retake Zuccotti Park on the six-month anniversary of the movement. He wrote, "We won't make a difference if we don't kill a cop or 2."

The NYPD arrested 73 people Saturday during protests that were broadcast via the Internet via Ustream, reports Fox News.

A misunderstanding? If the comment above "... kill a cop or 2." is a direct and accurate quote, what is hard to understand about it? I suppose he will claim he was only joking and the NYPD should lighten up and not take his stupid comment seriously. Given the behaviors and statements of some of these 'occupiers' all across the country the NYPD has no choice but to take him serious.

"Wait a minute, you misunderstood. I wasn't talking about GOOD cops...eh..um..."

Funny (not haha but sad) how the Occupiers get a pass from the main stream press but the Tea Party is on the State Departments Terrorist watch list. As a LEO I have never been threatened nor observed anything remotely considered violent from the Tea Party gatherings I have seen. Unless of course it's considered violent and terroristic to leave the location they gathered in cleaner than when they got there. I guess crapping on police cars and living in filth is the new American way......smh

NYPD would be investigated by the Dept. of Justice if they were to make any comment about killing a restaurant owner or two! I say jam his place and start a food fight. Handle your own credit card fraud, thefts, and burglaries, you big DUMMY!

Hey, Can we get the name of the restaurant? Wouldn't want to eat there by mistake. Or answer any 911 calls. Hope this clown is ready for the s**t storm headed his way. Oops, I'm sorry, you misunderstood what I just typed...........
