We all remember when a white supremacist terrorist committed a mass shooting on June 17, 2015, in Charleston, South Carolina. 9 African Americans were killed during a Bible study at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Among those people who were killed was the Senior Pastor, State Senator Clementa C. Pinckney. This church is one of the oldest black churches in the United States, and it has long been a center for organizing events which are related to civil rights.
Then and now, it’s hard to imagine a shooting taking place or the need for parishioners to bear arms, but that is our reality. My special guest Apostle Frank Burton, Jr. is the CEO of Burton Executive Security Training and he tell us that it’s time to change your mindset and awareness because it’s our new reality!
Frank trains businesses and churches in how to protect themselves from active shooters. He also instructs them on how to set up effective Security Teams. Frank is also a Pastor, 19 years who has been in ministry for 25 years, also an author, “From FBI Agent to an Apostle – Saga of a Spiritual Sniper”
Frank and I discussed how we must all change our mindset because active shooter situations, robberies and abductions can occur at any time to anyone. He goes on to explain that the profiles of these terrorist have changed and movies, grocery stores and churches are soft targets which makes it easier to attack.
We need security training now more than ever before and I encourage you to all contact Frank at 302-836-0292 as he has over 31 years experience and started Executive Protection services back in 2007 as part of the protection teams of Bishop T.D. Jakes and Kirk Franklin
