Caption This pt. 12

The weekly  “Caption This” feature of Bodyguard Blog returns as we ask readers to supply their own witty comments to humorous Executive Protection related photos.

Traditionally speaking, I know the story behind the photos before I post them, but I have to say, I’m just as perplexed as everyone else might be with this one???

So jumping right in, let’s “Caption This…”

Bulletproof T-Shirts?

First we reported Bulletproof Polo’s, and now an a Fruit of the Loom that can stop a bullet?   The University of Carolina has reportedly created a breakthrough that would allow an ordinary T-Shirt to become “wearable armor” by splicing the carbon in the cotton with boron, the third hardest material on the planet.

Me personally?

I think I’m going to wait until all the beta testing is done.

Former Blackwater President Indicted

RALEIGH, North Carolina (AP) — The former president of Blackwater Worldwide was charged Friday with using straw purchases to stockpile automatic weapons at the security firm and filing false documents to cover up gifts given to the King of Jordan.The federal indictment charges Gary Jackson, 52, who left the company last year in a management shakeup, along with four other former workers. The charges against Jackson include a conspiracy to violate firearms laws, false statements and possession of an unregistered firearm.

 Also indicted were former general counsel Andrew Howell, 44; former executive vice president Bill Mathews, 44; former procurement vice president Ana Bundy, 45; and, 65-year-old Ronald Slezak, a former weapons manager.

 The charges open a new front of the government’s oversight of the sullied security company. Several of the company’s contractors have previously been charged with federal crimes for their actions in war zones, but the company’s executives have so far weathered a range of investigations.

~ While there is no doubt these guys have had a successful business for quite a long time.  But if your one that believes in karma, the dark cloud that follows them must be massive.  For the full story click HERE.
