Security Television Network (STN), a subsidiary of Security 2.0, Inc., specializes in “breaking stories about victims, criminals, justice, security business and financial market news.” STN is the world’s first television channel to provide 24-hour security news coverage — poised to shape the future of security communication.
Before I share more about the channel, it’s fair that you should know something about who is bringing this Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign to you for support. Here is a fact, we’re ready to deliver to you a service that I believe every informed citizen needs, and should become familiar with our start-up, the worlds first 24-hour security news channel.
Our great country is being challenged by those who choose to divide us by race, political ideology, and the right of a collective people to feel secure.
The second paragraph of the United States Declaration of Independence, however, lets us know and we shall remember that: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, and that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. While these words and ideals are enshrined in our collective culture as Americans, we’re blitzed by sensational and exploitative soundbite news, the nationalization of media, thousands of news outlets with varying levels of quality and integrity, and what appears to remain are ideological debates, which fail to embrace the promise of a shared destiny. While I’m hopeful, it’s clear our common stories that unite and connect us as people, are under siege.
America, is where I was born and raised. I grew-up living on the fence line of a strawberry farm in Norwich, CT. Life quickly changed, however, when my mother, a single mom of five children, became one of the first women welders at General Dynamics, working night shifts in subzero temperatures to weld the hull of a “Trident” nuclear submarine. Since this time, I became well aware of what it would take to keep a country safe, and how the creation of might can be a deterrent to war, not invite war. The Big Stick Ideology by, President Theodore Roosevelt’s foreign policy: “speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.”
STN news coverage will include:
Gun Violence Epidemic, Full disclosure, the founder of STN, Dr. James Hall, joined the NRA before he became a teenager, raised on the belief that owning a gun is an American value. He grew up hunting and fishing but no longer has an interest in shooting animals. Today, his values of safety and gun ownership are challenged by gun violence, which is a public health epidemic. Many innocent people died as a result of firearm injuries every year in the United States, while so many others are wounded. How do we balance these competing values of safe gun ownership and the gun violence epidemic? It’s time to move past single events, dig deeper into the root cause(s) of this epidemic, and deliver the long-form news to allow for real-change. In fact, 39,707 Americans died from gun violence in 2019. This equates to over 3,300 gun deaths each month, over 763 gun deaths a week, and nearly 109 people killed with guns every day. The numbers are staggering, and we must never forget that behind them are very real stories of people with stories of their own. Individuals who are no longer with us because of a preventable tragedy.
Domestic terrorism, Violent, criminal acts committed by individuals and/or groups to further ideological goals stemming from domestic influences, such as those of a political, religious, social, racial, or environmental nature.
International terrorism, Violent, criminal acts committed by individuals and/or groups who are inspired by, or associated with, designated foreign terrorist organizations or nations (state-sponsored).
Cybersecurity, the practice of protecting systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks. These cyberattacks are usually aimed at assessing, modifying, or destroying sensitive information; Ransomware: extorting money from users; or interrupting normal business processes.
Consumer privacy, which involves the handling and protection of sensitive personal information provided by customers in the course of everyday transactions.
Global health security, how strong and resilient is our public health system, which should be able to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease threats, wherever they occur in the world?
Election security, the heart of our democracy is the protection of elections and the voting infrastructure, keeping it safe from cyberattack or cyber threat – including the tampering with or infiltration of voting machines and equipment, election office networks and practices, and voter registration databases. Election security also includes voter suppression and the efforts to erase voting rights for millions of people, which has escalated across the country.
Community policing, or community-oriented policing (COP), a strategy of policing that focuses on developing relationships with community members. The central goal of community policing is for police to build relationships with the community, including through local agencies to reduce social disorder. STN coverage news coverage will also include Police misconduct, referring to inappropriate conduct and illegal actions taken by police officers in connection with their official duties, and America’s commitment to justice.
National security, the security and defense of the United States, including its citizens, economy, and institutions, which is regarded as a duty of government. This includes defense, arms control, nuclear proliferation, military families, space force, immigration & border security, among other aspects of protection.
Diplomacy or International Relations, the practice of influencing the decisions and conduct of foreign governments or intergovernmental organizations through discussion, negotiation, and other nonviolent more thoughtful means.
Global action on Global Threats, the global challenges facing the United States—from climate change and mass migration to technological disruption and infectious diseases—have grown more complex and more urgent, while the rapid advance of authoritarianism, nationalism, and illiberalism has undermined our ability to collectively meet them.
Violence against women (VAW), also known as gender-based violence and sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), which are violent acts primarily or exclusively committed against women or girls. Such violence is often considered a form of hate crime, committed against women or girls specifically because they are female.
Hate Crimes, a traditional offense like murder, arson, or vandalism with an added element of bias. For the purposes of collecting statistics, the FBI has defined a hate crime as a “criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, or gender identity.” Hate itself is not a crime—and the FBI is mindful of protecting freedom of speech and other civil liberties.
Drug-related crime, possession, manufacture, or distribution of drugs among so many other topics of concern to citizens. It’s time to re-balance these citizen concerns with long-form investigative journalism – giving stories the air time they deserve!
