CEO and Founder of Envisage Technologies
Ari is involved in building next-generation training systems, cloud-based learning, records management, automation of high-liability training operations, and pervasive readiness technologies. He is a committee member of the National Congress for Secure Communities and an advisory board member of IADLEST. He has consulted for Federal Agencies, Homeland Security, Public Safety, Military, and Law Enforcement on technology, security, legally defensible records, compliance, and training.
When the Founding Fathers drafted the Constitution, they didn't exclude law enforcement officers from the right to free speech. So we do not have to remain silent while the fringe voices a cacophony of anti-police rhetoric.
Sworn federal law enforcement officers were left wondering what their role was in this situation. It was shameful for the White House not to immediately commit its federal law enforcement assets to resolving this conflict.
As the White House commits to providing funding for 10,000 Syrian refugees to settle in the United States, the bill that funds the 9/11 World Trade Center Health Program for first responders has expired. How do 9/11 heroes take a funding back seat to refugees?
Given the alarming increase in active shooter incidents, Americans are now forced to construct a mental pre-set to prepare for a lethal encounter with a madman. Fighting back is obviously easier said than done, but playing possum is not a viable survival option.
Unfortunately, both leading political parties continue to talk a good-game, while failing to commit the funding needed for ICE and Customs & Border Protection to effectively capture, deport, and keep out violent aliens.
