Crimes against GOD

As revolting it is to think that we must formulate a security plan to protect our Houses of Worship, it has, in fact, become a necessity. On the heels of yet another mass shooting at a Church, Paul examines this horrible trend and lays out, through empirical data and retroactive investigation the manner in which we need to remain safe while at the one place we are supposed to feel total peace. In doing so, Paul is joined by a 35 year Pastor who has decided to become an EMT and Certified Protection Professional to keep his congregation safe. Now that’s an interview you want to hear. The show is closed by introducing our HERO OF THE MONTH, Mr. Jon Pritikin.


So what is Artificial Intelligence? A look at the forensics side of the Las Vegas shooting Investigation

As the investigation continues and the public's patience grows weary in search of a motive behind the most prolific mass shooting in US history, Paul breaks down the forensic side of this investigation as well as the process to crystallize the momentous task that lies before law enforcement. In doing so, the use of technology such as Artificial Intelligence is broken down through the eyes of two guests that protect our global community through its various uses.


A forensic look at the worst mass shooting in US history: Las Vegas October 1, 2017

With a heavy heart, Paul breaks down what exactly happened with in depth dialog on the shooter, the location, what was known and what could have, or have not, been done preemptively. Joined by EP Seth Neiman and legal analyst Vincent Ancona, the discussion goes from the dynamics of the active shooter scenario and use of automatic weapons to the measures one can take to increase the probability of survival when confronted with an active shooter. Special guest Kayla Folgueira shares her insights on the use of RedZone Map technology in staying one step ahead of all dangerous crime. Our closing comments on this episode are perhaps the most poignant of all.


Racism, Police Community Relations and NFL Players Exercising Their 2nd Amendment Rights?

On the heels of the President's statement to the NFL and their subsequent reaction in concert with the St. Louis police community debacle, Paul and Seth lay it out there in their discussion on racism police community relations and the future of how athletes exercise their 2nd amendment rights. This is capped off by showcasing how one NYC community and the NYPD are succeeding in breaking down the racial wall and even reducing crime at the same time.

The North Korea Crisis---The Real risk to the United States

Paul tackles the one subject that sits at the top of the concern list of billions worldwide; a nuclear war. It is in light of the impending threat of a nuclear attack against the United States posed by North Korea that Paul reached out to two of the most knowledgeable professionals in our country to discuss, at length, this crisis. Mr. Gordon Chang, one of the leading experts on North Korea and China in the United States and Brigadier General Dan Goodrich (former Pentagon) lay out perhaps the most powerful and direct conversation expressed in the media on this subject, thus far. Poignant, powerful, sobering and reassuring!


Pandemics and Exposures:

The need for emergency health care has never been more critical. In true Security Brief fashion, Paul reached out to good friend and world renown Bio-Chem expert Dr. Bruce Bowman for a powerful discussion centered on the possibilities and reactions to the risk of an NBCR (nuclear- biological- chemical-radiological) attack.

Paul also sits down with one of our country’s most widely respected emergency room doctors, Dr. Janette Nesheiwat, for an eye opening conversation on our hospitals readiness level.


MS 13 & the Rise of Gang Violence

With over 30,000 street gangs and more than 1 million members in the US, gang violence has grown to near epidemic proportions. Amongst the most problematic is M 13, the gang initially composed of refuges from El Salvador. Paul will examine the birth and growth of this street organization from LA to communities of all socioeconomic stature around the United States. From an intel perspective, Paul will be joined by 32 year Police Veteran Det. Ray McGowan for the most inside look available to the general public allowing for all Security Brief listeners to garner critical safety information regarding MS 13 and gangs in general. 


Freedom of Speech -v- Community Safety/Protest or Riot.
