Private Security & Military Contractors Present in Ferguson Missouri Riots
Dark Site Operations, a St. Louis headquartered Private Security Contracting Company owned by Michael Bland, a former St. Louis County Police Officer provided review and close examination of the Ferguson Riots Video Taped Evidence involving Michael Brown when he committed a strong arm robbery of the gas station in Ferguson, Missouri and then attempted to take the Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson’s firearm.
Bland stated that his Private Security Company Dark Site Operations was not directly involved in providing Executive Protection in this incident but were on standby. Dark Site Operations LLC. Was formed by personnel who are all trained Law Enforcement & Military Professionals who have been carefully vetted.
Other groups like the Oath Keepers were present and providing security for buildings and businesses that were facing possible destruction during the riots.
Bland stated many times Private Security Companies are thought of as coming in and fighting it out with people and causing confrontation. However, this is quite the contrary that does make for great Hollywood movies. In real life if you have a confrontation you failed at what your doing.

Private Security & Private Military Contracting Services in St. Louis, Missouri and Globally are often not as glamorous as one may think. We are not walking around with machine guns or flying in gun ships mowing down bad guys. Many time’s conducting security can mean staring at a wall for 24 hours and not moving.
This is not so fun once the reality sets in. Then sure there are the operations we conduct via our Special Activities Unit that handles all our covert operations. These can be handling kidnappings, Abductions, Blackmail, Ransom, Hostage Rescue, and even Sex Trafficking Operations.
We have strategic partners around the Globe that help us provide these same services in remote regions of the globe as well. These companies are closely vetted and highly professional personnel who are current and former Law Enforcement & Military.
As a Private Security Contractor, the Laws in each country are entirely different and carrying firearms and you must know these laws, or you may very well find your self in a foreign prison without any help from the United States Government.
Just as if you are operating in the United States ignorance of the law is not a defense anywhere in the world. If you think one minute you can operate globally and do as you, please because you are American this will land you in present in a New York minute.
Therefore it is so important to have contacts globally to have as partners but also as sounding boards. No Matter how much you know or how good you think you are there are always new and compromising situations you can become involved in.
