    Talk about 503C violators, here they have these "poker halls" that are run for Charity. They pay no taxes and donate their earnings, minus expenses, towards Charity. The folks running these charitable organizations drive BMW's and draw six figure salaries.
    I doubt POWNET does this kind of stuff....................

    OH, and leave DB out of this, he is not the topic. There is nothing fake about DB, he is a very highly trained LEO (retired) who may have been an a-hole at times to his subordinates but he (and they) got the job done............well.

    Period and out

    DB got himself into the middle of this issue. You can find his quotes all over the internet and throughout this thread. He has publicly stated that Duane Dwyer is in fact a Confirmed Marine Sniper and other things relevant to this matter. DB States on 02-09-2007, 04:07 AM,

    As far as him being a highly trained LEO in good standing with the Ontario PD I have been told otherwise but that is beyond this subject matter. It is however in his financial interest for this to all go away because in his own words, DB states on 02-09-2007, 04:07 AM,

    Here is another relevant quote from DB written for American Cop Magazine,

    Come on Bubba, all DB did was believe his good friend, take him at his word and continually repeat what he was told. If I had a friend who I believed had a background and history similar to DD and I was involved in an LE lifestyle I would probably tell the world about my buddy with the same energy that DB did. The guy believed DD and if what you have reported is the 100% factual truth then DB is as big a sucker as many others who believed Duane was what he said he was.
    Now I am more than 3000 miles from California so I too rely on "what I am told" and I have been told DB was a very effective LEO . He may have rubbed folks the wrong way but I am confident in saying the man should be proud of his accomplishments, PERIOD.

    And again, DB is not the topic, he is a good friend to Duane like many others who support him. That's all been reported ad nauseum and really getting to be very old news.

    And for the record I am not an A team or Strider team member, just another guy who thought Duane was the real deal and have hope(albeit dwindling at mach 8) that he IS still the real deal.

    To whom it may concern,

    Lance Harris has been employed as a security professional with Blackwater Security Consulting a number of times since 2002. He was on our first security contract we ever received and has been nothing but the consummate professional in all aspects of his work. If anyone needs to ask questions about this work my direct line is 252-435-XXXX. I have been at Blackwater through all the period of time in question.

    Very Respectfully

    Him working for Blackwater like the 1000s of other out there has what to do with this thread.

    For someone who is telling others to stay focused he is sure posting stuff that has wandered.

    Or.....it could be called establishing your bonafides up front, before all the apologists try to attack your record.

    Seems to me that Tamishigiri is trying to get to the truth as much as anyone else, and maybe has more of a reason to do so than most......Blackwater doesn't just take thugs off the street, they gots to have skills...and verified skills at that.

    Maybe he served as a U.S. Marine in combat...could be possible...I don't know the guy...right....so it would stand to reason that if someone is a phony claiming to be a decorated U.S. Marine S/S, this would bother Lance on a personal basis, being that he has legitimate claim to his titles.

    Just a possibility, maybe moreso than self promotion.;)

    Best Regards,

    From what I understand, certain parties have tried to "shoot the messenger" by saying Harris was fired from Blackwater and otherwise casting aspersions on his background. I guess this is his way of answering claims made with his own proof.

    Has that claim come up in this thread? If so then he should quote it and debunk it. If it didn’t come up in this thread here then who cares. It matter about as much as using myspace for verification.

    Yes, it came up in this thread. Maybe you'll have difficulty finding it in the middle of all this obfuscation. Maybe you'll have difficulty finding out what this thread is all about in all this obfuscation. Some people seem to be managing to find that, though....

    Very true Steve. I was not aware that the man's credentials have been brought into question but if they have the post makes sense. My knowledge of Blackwater is limited but you gotta know what they expect you know if they are going to pay you to know it and do it. It's tough to be a Poser for Blackwater and work longer than a minute, he obviously has the skill set to do that kind of work and that's great. But he needs to stay on task and post direct info on DD and not all these stories of others. We are all familiar with the shit Posers pull and get away with and the damage they do, it's one person and his professional accomplishments that's at issue here. The Poser issue is better addressed in Political.:eek:

    And I am sure Lance takes it personally because of his doings but based on what I have read it's FAR more personal than that, Period.

    This is the first time I've had to edit for content in this thread, but I'm not going to allow child information to be posted. AFAIK, the name posted was his son's, and that has nothing to do with this thread.
