Sixty-two year old Bertha Champagne, described as a long time "baby sitter" for Marvin and Margaret Bush's two children, son Walker, 13, and daughter Marshall, 17, was found crushed to death by her own vehicle in a driveway in front of the Bush family home in the Alexandria section of Fairfax County. Champagne reportedly lived at the Bush family home.
Champagne had left the residence to retrieve something from her car, which police say had somehow been left in gear. According to the police report, the car rolled forward and pinned the woman between it and a small building next to the driveway (possibly a checkpoint built by the Secret Service when Marvin's father, George H. W. Bush, was president). The car crossed Edgehill Drive, a small street in front of the Bush compound. The vehicle then crossed a busy two-lane street, Fort Hunt Road, finally coming to rest in a wooded area across the street that adjoins the prestigious Belle Haven Country Club. No explanations have been offered as to why the vehicle did not move until Champagne was in a position to be crushed.
Universal Protection Service Acquires the Security Officer Services Division of T&M Protection Resources, LLC
SANTA ANA, California (Jan. 2, 2013) - Universal Protection Service, a division of Universal Services of America and one of the largest providers of security services in the U.S., is excited to announce that they have acquired the security officer services division of T&M Protection Resources, LLC (T&M).
The ultra-rich bankers, hedge fund managers and private equity executives of New York City have long enlisted private security firms to help safeguard them and their wealth. But as the mood on Main Street turns increasingly hostile, New York’s financial titans are cranking their security measures up to 11. For the high-end security firms that provide the moneyed elite with specialty services like around-the-clock bodyguards and elaborate home security systems, Occupy Wall Street has been a stimulus package all its own.
“Now, instead of having a retired cop sitting in the garage on Maiden Lane, you have a whole command center at your disposal,” said Robert S. Tucker, the chief executive of T.& M. Protection.
As anxiety has rippled through the gilded class, a cottage industry has sprouted to protect high-net-worth individuals from every threat imaginable. There are companies that sell kidnapping insurance, companies that will run background checks on domestic staff members, companies that will replace glass windows with bulletproof polycarbonate panels and companies that will build safe rooms with steel-fortified walls.
