    I had the pleasure of working on a property that was adjacent to a place where Geo2 was going to make a n appearance. I was tasked with helping the SS to figure out phone connections and access to rooftops. 
    They were entirely on point about sight lines and one of the building's on the property was the tallest in a mile or so radius. (Times Building, Ardmore)
    I helped with the tie in for land lines, got them on the roof and got out of the way. 

    Bush did the speech and when finished,the SS cleared out everything and got out of town as fast as feasible, but they took a moment to actually print me a frame worthy certificate of appreciation from the back of one of the black vans. 
    It was my honor and I think my duty to help keep things safe. 
    It messed up scheduling and store openings but it was only an afternoon. 
    Guys in suits were everywhere but they were so professional and so respectful that all the Main Line liberals with money were cooperative. 

    I know that no one will take my post seriously. I am going to see if I can find the event on line somewhere. 

    I can’t remember the exact date but it was George the younger and the visit was at the Ardmore YMCA on Montgomery Ave.  

    I find it very interesting that this happened but I guess it’s about the difference between being a former President/candidate and actually being in office but I think either the site of the rally was hard to control or it was all a scheme. 
    Maybe the plan from the beginning was to nick an ear. 

    It will be interesting to see where the investigation goes.

  2. I spoke with some guys a couple years ago about working today vs 20 plus years ago when I did and they said the job has completely changed.

    We talked about how today you have to be shot at first before using deadly force so I believe the SS guys have that same mentality. 
    “Better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6” wad our motto then.

    God Bless everyone in law enforcement today, thankless job.
