Midnight Platoon Announces Release of "Within Dep't Guidelines" T-Shirt Design to Raise Funds in Solidarity With Indicted NYPD Sgt. Hugh Barry

The harsh reality is nearly anyone armed with a baseball bat can take a life. This is why the NYPD trains an officer to respond with lethal force when facing this threat. With the recent indictment of NYPD Sgt. Hugh Barry despite him acting “Within Dep't Guidelines” pro-law enforcement clothing line Midnight Platoon has announced the launch of a fundraiser t-shirt to help the Sergeant in his time of need.

Bronx, New York. June 14, 2017

There are few jobs where a person is placed in the face of danger or forced to make quick decisions regarding life and death as often as that of a NYPD officer. This explains why many won't just sit back when an officer acts justly and still finds themselves under attack by outside elements of the administration of the same place they are sworn to protect. Pro-law enforcement clothing line Midnight Platoon have “taken point” in this area whenever necessary, recently announcing they are stepping up to help the latest officer to face this kind of dire threat NYPD Sgt. Hugh Barry, with the launch of a special fund and awareness raising “Within Dep't Guidelines” design. Sgt. Barry has been indicted despite using lethal force against an aggressive person armed with a baseball bat, something which is defined in the NYS Penal Law as a dangerous weapon. Barry used his firearm to defend himself as he believed he was going to suffer a serious physical injury or even death. The Penal Law does not address the mental condition of the person wielding the dangerous instrument; however, Danner was holding a pair of scissors when Barry first encountered her abut opted not to use his firearm then in an attempt to deescalate the situation which became more volatile when Dazzler grabbed a bat. A Taser, based on the force continuum, would not have been a feasible option because it is less than lethal and has more success when a subject’s back is exposed.

“According to training received in the NYPD Police Academy and also at the NYPD firing range, utilizing the 5 man position target which was used to identify lethal threats, discharging your service weapon to eliminate the threat of a person armed with a baseball bat is a justifiable use of deadly physical force,” commented injured in the line of duty and retired NYPD narcotics Detective Andrew Liakos, Founder of Midnight Platoon. “We were all trained to shoot at targets displaying a person armed with a baseball bat. Immediately after Barry’s shooting those targets were removed from all department ranges, despite being used for many years. That was basis for the design foundation 'Within Department Guidelines'. Sgt. Barry deserves all the support in the world. We will never forget training, the use of force continuum and of course range target #2, a man wielding a baseball bat.”

According to Midnight Platoon, research has shown that it only takes 73 Newtons of force, or 16lbs of pressure to fracture a human skull at a one inch point of impact, something easily achieved by anyone armed with a baseball bat – from a child all the way to an elderly adult. The fact that Sgt Barry was in a highly volatile situation facing a person armed with a baseball bat is not under dispute by anyone – and only the Bronx District Attorney seems interested in prosecuting the officer for doing his job within reason. “Something’s not right in this world when a Sergeant who was called to a location because of irrational behavior and identifies a lethal threat is now being accused of murder.” Midnight Platoon was created to honor law enforcement and show solidarity, when necessary, in just these kinds of situations. The decision to launch the “Within Dep't Guidelines” where 50% of the proceeds will be donated to the GoFundMe campaign set up for the Sergeant by the NYPD Sergeant’s Benevolant Association was an easy one.

The response to the new shirt has been passionate.

    To the centermassclothing.com Admin. this is Eric and I ran across centermassclothing.com a few minutes ago.

    Looks great… but now what?

    By that I mean, when someone like me finds your website – either through Search or just bouncing around – what happens next? Do you get a lot of leads from your site, or at least enough to make you happy?

    Honestly, most business websites fall a bit short when it comes to generating paying customers. Studies show that 70% of a site’s visitors disappear and are gone forever after just a moment.

    Here’s an idea…

    How about making it really EASY for every visitor who shows up to get a personal phone call you as soon as they hit your site…

    You can –

    Web Visitors Into Leads is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It signals you the moment they let you know they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    CLICK HERE https://advanceleadgeneration.com to try out a Live Demo with Web Visitors Into Leads now to see exactly how it works.

    You’ll be amazed – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus a half-hour or more later could increase your results 100-fold.

    It gets even better… once you’ve captured their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation.

    That way, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Pretty sweet – AND effective.

    Hi centermassclothing.com Admin! I just found your site, quick question…

    My name’s Eric, I found centermassclothing.com after doing a quick search – you showed up near the top of the rankings, so whatever you’re doing for SEO, looks like it’s working well.

    So here’s my question – what happens AFTER someone lands on your site? Anything?

    Research tells us at least 70% of the people who find your site, after a quick once-over, they disappear… forever.

    That means that all the work and effort you put into getting them to show up, goes down the tubes.

    Why would you want all that good work – and the great site you’ve built – go to waste?

    Because the odds are they’ll just skip over calling or even grabbing their phone, leaving you high and dry.

    But here’s a thought… what if you could make it super-simple for someone to raise their hand, say, “okay, let’s talk” without requiring them to even pull their cell phone from their pocket?

    You can – thanks to revolutionary new software that can literally make that first call happen NOW.

    Web Visitors Into Leads is a software widget that sits on your site, ready and waiting to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know IMMEDIATELY – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re still there at your site.

    You know, strike when the iron’s hot!

    When targeting leads, you HAVE to act fast – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later is huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s why you should check out our new SMS Text With Lead feature as well… once you’ve captured the phone number of the website visitor, you can automatically kick off a text message (SMS) conversation with them.

    Imagine how powerful this could be – even if they don’t take you up on your offer immediately, you can stay in touch with them using text messages to make new offers, provide links to great content, and build your credibility.

    Just this alone could be a game changer to make your website even more effective.

    To the centermassclothing.com Admin! my name’s Eric and for just a second, imagine this…

    - Someone does a search and winds up at centermassclothing.com.

    - They hang out for a minute to check it out. “I’m interested… but… maybe…”

    - And then they hit the back button and check out the other search results instead.

    - Bottom line – you got an eyeball, but nothing else to show for it.

    - There they go.

    This isn’t really your fault – it happens a LOT – studies show 7 out of 10 visitors to any site disappear without leaving a trace.

    But you CAN fix that.

    Web Visitors Into Leads is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know right then and there – enabling you to call that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

    Plus, now that you have their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation… so even if you don’t close a deal then, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.
