Live Aid – 1985

I remember going to Live Aid in 85′. I was with Bernadette, ( My ex and Mother of my daughters), and that morning she insisted we go to the Philadelphia Zoo. So here I agree, while secretly knowing that I was going to go after our zoo trip. To put it pleasantly, I was 24 years old, at one of the biggest concert events ever in the city and at JFK to boot! I had seen in the past at JFK Lynard Skynard and the Stones, Molly Hatchet and The Outlaws, Marshall Tucker Band, Hell, Peter Frampton I saw and only wanted to hear two songs from him. After that, me and my buddies didn’t give a rats ass.

To say I was not drinking would be a lie. EVERYBODY drank booze, did some drugs of some sort, and got with a woman. I got to sweat it out (It was hot that day) with everyone, from Jimmy Page, to Joan Baez. Now I am going to “Live 8” with my wife, sons, and possibly daughters down at the Ben Franklin Parkway.

Should be a hoot! I will add to this later, I’m on the phone with my Daughter Stephanie as I type.



One thought on “Live Aid – 1985

  1. “Kill The Idea Of Cops”July 17th 2007 CNN stated this in one of their articles, “WASHINGTON (CNN) — So let’s cut to the chase on the new National Intelligence Estimate: Does it show America is safer today than it was on September 10, 2001 — or not?”…………………….. “While nobody knows with absolute certainty whether al Qaeda is “stronger” than it was in the past, the point is that this new report shows the terror organization is “strong” yet again.”After ………….. we get more bodybags ………….soon to come………mark my words here folks……… in large people areas like Shopping Center mega-malls, large health center…….hospitals like “Albany Med” of New York, maybe, yes, just maybe, someone in high places, in politics, or in the media, will take note what I am saying here…………. over thirty five years of experience, research, obserance, and education in the public safety and security profession, I personally have come to a positive conclusion ……….. yes………. with absolute certainty…….. that even if al Qaeda isn’t stronger than it was in the past, getting through our first line of defense is easy! Security in places like Shopping malls, Hospitals, City sky-scrapping Corporate office buildings, Colleges/Universities, and any other large complex, are told to call the police if there is a problem. Security is, in general, today, a “Hands-off-department in most complexes and that is very sad. Being that the case, we all know that the police are at a scene usually after-the-fact………..they write their reports out and the crime is history………. the before factor must be present to prevent anything………… so if a none-terrorist crime is not possible to prevent, how is a terrorist crime going to be possible? It’s not!So “Kill the idea of cops” means, everyone who depends on the police to prevent crime and terrorist attacks without the direct help from a professional security people who are able to “put hands on”, seeing that security is at a scene, before, during and after a possible crime, are fools…………you must kill that idea that your security should just call the police……… and everyone better make sure their security is truly preventing crime and are not just there as an insurance rate deduction, a common reason today for having a security guard in place.Wake-up! Am I, and my small group of public safety and security professionals the only ones who see what’s coming here in America folks?If you work in a Shopping mall, Hospital, University, and any large complex…………. ask your security if they are told to call the local police if they need to put “Hands-On” to prevent a crime from happening. If they are honest with you, they will tell you yes! Why is this important news? because it tells you that when the police get there, the crime will most likely be just a report, waiting to be filed in a police station, that will not be followed up unless it’s “body-bags” of friends and families you may know. The stock holders, and owners of these complexes depend on the police to prevent crime. This is why their security is looked at as just over head in their business, and not really nessesary for direct crime prevention and terrorist attacks prevention. Just keep in mind folks………….. prevention needs the before factor! And the police are very seldom at a scene before a crime happens!So………….. everyone………….. “Kill The Idea Of Cops”, for if you don’t, preventing terrorist like al Qaeda, is not going to happen! We will be easy prey! Security departments everywhere in America must stop operating like police departments by just being a re-active crime control agency………… coupled with just calling the police………. all security and the police are doing is reacting to a crime! Who’s trying to prevent crime? Anyone? The crimes we see at Universities and colleges resently should never happen, and wouldn’t if security did their homework! If security would be a pro-active agency they would have caught that young man long before he commited the crime! You all know who I’m talking about, no need to bring it’s details to the forefront anymore…….. we all heard plenty of the frightening details of the students who suffered greatly.So I wonder how many people will read my warnings here? How many bodybags will America see before they realize security is not fulfilling their role in crime prevention because people in the place of authority over security are not “Killing The Idea Of Cops”? How many politicians will ever take note of what I am saying? Do the police feel threaten in what I say? For I will go on record right now, by saying, the police are the only ones who are doing their jobs superbly!People of America need to understand there responsibilities and the importance of developing their security departments and agencies to prevent crime now! And the law makers need to make, and change laws when needed, to help security do their job…….. prevent crime and terrorist attacks now, with the help of police, the circle needed bewteen security and police will be what we need to stop terrorist in their tracts! What about the fact that right now, as you are reviewing my article, your security department or agency could be hiring a terrorist cell player in complexes throughout America……………… do you know how easy it is to get a security position in most States in America? Too easy! And shopping malls, hospitals and other complexes are therefore wide open for terrorist!”So let’s cut to the chase on the new National Intelligence Estimate: Does it show America is safer today than it was on September 10, 2001 — or not?” CNN………… In my professional opinion, and the opinion of my independent research group, NO! We are not safer! And I would talk to anyone who’d like to disput that fact!
