How to Improve Terror before it happens

As I read the news, I found out that most terrorists who commit their despicable act of terror uses car rental and has prior criminal record. How about establishing communication between car rental agencies and the Homeland Security (DHS) or the FBI. The DHS or FBI will be able to detect or red flag appears when an individual suspect with previous investigation, criminal record or known affiliation with radical ideas... more »

Possible tactics to use against attack/assault with a vehicle and/or cutting/stabbing weapon

These suggestions are based on my training, experiences and readings.
Suggestions on tactics that one may consider to use against a terror attack/assault with a vehicle in an open outside area.
1. Be aware of your surroundings - think cover and concealment.
2. Know avenues of escape when walking or at a gathering (parade, fairs, concerts, etc).
3. Be aware of areas that a vehicle cannot travel on e.g. steep inclines,... more »

Airline Safety

Airport security scans, etc can only go so far.
I travelled a lot by air in the 1970's as an employee of TWA(now extinct). Took parents to Israel soon after the 6 day conflict when hijacking was in vogue.
In what I now consider a truly genius strategy, as part of a reasonable security check, all passengers were told all El- Al flights had a unidentified air Marshall passenger with full authority to use deadly force... more »

Border security idea

Warning, this message is intended to stimulate an "out of the box", open minded brainstorming on securing the US- Mexico border, since ONLY the "wall solution " limitations and/or costs are being noted mostly to discredit the POTUS.
How about we pivot to a 25x25 yard trench, filled as needed with nuclear reactor spent fuel rods, so a 25 yard radius deadly event horizon results. Since Yucca mountain reneged as a waste... more »

Through City Truck & Rail Traffic

As a resident of Atlanta, I consistently see large 18-wheeler trucks violate the ban on traveling through the Downtown Interconnector at all times of the day. It is my understanding that GADOT has banned such truck traffic. Not to be too Clancyisk, but a large truck loaded with explosives, especially during the rush hour, could not only case massive destruction, but if Amos stopped under a bridge or elevated MARTA rail... more »

resurrecting small & mid-size airports

Since 9/11, security requirements have had the unintended effect of marginalizing many small & mid-size airports, by restricting traffic to those holding boarding passes for the day of travel. This has caused severe hardships for many businesses at these airports (which larger ones like Atlanta or Charlotte do not suffer), causing many businesses to close or to leave as soon as their lease expires. This reduces the offerings... more »

Voluntary pre-interview drug screening

Hey all,

In light of recent events I think a good change would be for us to have TSOs take pre-employment drug screenings before even interviewing. I think it is ridiculous that we cannot find sober and qualified individuals to protect our nation in some of our most vulnerable areas. I have been passed over multiple times here in Florida despite the fact that I can pass a drug test 365 days a year with no notice whatsoever.... more »

US southern border idea

Instead of a massive wall supported by electronics and huge numbers of agents why not a basic wall like what is currently being used and add something like 5 acre cross fenced square lots all along the barren areas of the border with retired Latin Spanish speaking veterans living, initially in propane powered FEMA type housing on each lot? With intranet connections and webcams everywhere, these people could greet those... more »

Post to stop vehicle massacres

Seeing that using vehicles to commit mass murder, I have an idea:
Plant poles and posts between sidewalks and streets. These need only be in places where high pedestrian traffic is likely.
They should be placed so that a vehicle travelling at high speed could not negotiate between them, They could be
wooden telephone poles or weak-looking posts constructed of solid steel and implanted in about five feet of concrete.... more »

PRETRIAL SERVICES OFFICERS

I AM REQUESTING THAT US PROBATION AND PRETRIAL SERVICES, who often travel Armed and Unarmed be automatically enrolled in the PRECHECK system. It was very frustrating to have my US Government computer inspected and be held up at the airport a few months ago. It was actually ridiculous.

How To Pay For The Wall.

This is how to not only pay for the construction of the Southern Border Wall, but to pay off our foreign debt to China. Last January the Multistate :Powerball Lottery had a Grand Prize totaling $1.5 Billion Dollars USD. In one week 8 Trillion Tickets were sold that generated $16 Trillion Dollars. Canada, Ireland, and other Countries have their own National Lottery. Why not create a Federally operated National Lottery,... more »

Airline safety.

Separate luggage from the passengers!
There should be Cargo Planes which will handle luggage for multiple Airlines by destination which would arrive at approx same time with the Passenger planes. People already have all they need on the plane: food, drinks, seat mounted computer tablets, internet and movies. They don't need their luggage while airborne! Pros: 99.9% safety guarantee! Cons: will require scheduling changes.... more »

Airline safety - external scanning of an airplane before take off.

Here is my other idea. Right before the take off while taxing every airplane is scanned by an external laser device for presence of explosive ingredient vapors on board.

Such device currently exist for detection of alcohol in cars. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/06/140602155959.htm

The use of the device is simple: The laser system is be set up on the side of the runway to monitor each plane that passes by.... more »
