A Just Cause Remembers the Tragedy and Loss of 9/11

Justice Advocacy Organization, A Just Cause Reflects On Victims of 9/11 and the IRP6

DENVER, CO–(Marketwired – September 11, 2015) – A Just Cause Radio airs a two-part special broadcast, entitled Remembering 9/11 dedicated
to honoring the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, heroes, and six
men, known as the IRP6, who were inspired by these tragic events to
develop a revolutionary case management software solution to help law
enforcement overcome key information sharing failures that contributed
to the tragedy (http://www.blogtalkradio.com/ajcradio2/2015/09/09/remembering-911–never-forget). The final broadcast airs tonight appropriately on 9/11.

“As
we approach the 14th anniversary of 9/11, we felt compelled to reflect
on the victims and heroes of this senseless, yet avoidable tragedy,”
says Lamont Banks, Executive Director of A Just Cause.

“As
we remember 9/11, we highlight a little girl, who from the age of 3 to
adulthood, expresses sadness and heartbreak as she traverses through
major events in her life without her father,” adds Banks. “We also shine
a light on the patriotism of the IRP6 and discuss how it motivated them
to build Case Investigative Life Cycle software to help our country
avoid another 9/11, only to have members of the law enforcement
community destroy their dreams with a malicious prosecution,” explains
Banks. (https://youtu.be/Nf-N_rMozfo)
David
Banks (IRP6) vividly recalls his first visit to New York City after
9/11. “We were in New York City for a demonstration of our software to
the NYPD and as I looked out of my 9th floor window from the Millennium
Hilton Hotel on Church Street, which is directly across the street from
the towers, I gazed down for at least 15 minutes at the large holes in
the ground where the towers once stood,” says David Banks. “Standing
there silent and overwhelmed with sadness, tears flowed down my face as I
imagined the horror faced by New Yorkers that day,” adds Banks (IRP6).
“As I spoke to members of the NYPD, they told me that television could
not adequately convey the sense of desperation and terror that gripped
the city. One Sergeant told me that a large number of people jumped to
their death to avoid the blistering heat and when they would hit the
ground their body parts would explode and disperse in different
directions,” Banks (IRP6) continues. “They told me that the stench of
burning human flesh lasted for months,” says Banks (IRP6). “That trip
changed my life forever and imbued me and others of the IRP6 with an
indomitable spirit to use our talents as software engineers to develop a
solution that could truly make a difference for our country and law
enforcement,” adds David Banks (IRP6).
The
congressional 9/11 Commission, which conducted investigations into
9/11, found the FBI’s investigative case management system to be
antiquated and their processes contributed to information sharing
failures that led to the 9/11 attack. The Commission reported that “The
FBI did not have the capability to link the collective knowledge of
agents in the field to national priorities.” (http://govinfo.library.unt.edu/911/report/index.htm)
In 2012, FBI Chief Technology Officer, Jack Israel, in an interview with Fierce Government,
described the FBI case management system as “archaic” and discussed
failed attempts by SAIC and Lockheed Martin to build “an independent
electronic case management system.” The two failed case management
projects, Virtual Case File and Sentinel cost taxpayers a combined $1.25
billion dollars. “The case management systems that led to information
sharing failures are still in operation, which means our nation is still
at risk for another 9/11,” says Cliff Stewart, A Just Cause.
“Innovation almost exclusively arises from small businesses like IRP
Solutions, not large ones like SAIC and Lockheed Martin,” adds Stewart.
According to the book, Innovators,
author Walter Isaacson discusses how imaginative innovators of our time
(Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Larry Page) turn disruptive ideas into
realities and explored the social and cultural forces that provided the
atmosphere for innovation. Bill Gates had a vision that “everyone would
have a home computer that could be used for calling up books and other
information.” Steve Jobs had a vision to “create the first fully
packaged computer” with both hardware and software and Larry Page of
Google envisioned that he “could download the whole Web, and just keep
the links,” which evolved into the idea that he could index pages ranked
by importance as a foundation for a search engine. Isaacson points out
that the social and cultural forces that spawned Gates and Jobs’
innovation was a research ecosystem that was nurtured by the government
spending and managed by a military-industrial-academic collaboration.
“The evolving threats of global terrorism spawned innovation by the
IRP6,” says Stewart.
“Since
patrol, investigative and intelligence operations share common
approaches and processes, we envisioned that we could create a single,
adaptive software framework that could be easily customized to any
agency’s processes and procedures for their entire collection, analysis,
distribution and presentation of information for law enforcement
operations,” explains David Banks (IRP6). “I am 100% confident our
software revolutionizes the way law enforcement manages information and
will make our nation safer,” adds David Banks (IRP6).
A Just Cause recently interviewed former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik, who was right below the towers as the 2ndaircraft
hit. “He and other first responders, including firefighters literally
saved thousands of lives and we must never forget their sacrifice on
that day,” says Cliff Stewart, A Just Cause. “We must always be
conscious and show appreciation for the daily sacrifices made by our
first responders who saved the lives of people they didn’t know,” adds
Stewart. “Bernard Kerik and other first responders who put their lives
at risk for others are heroes and should be respected as such,”
concludes Stewart (http://www.blogtalkradio.com/ajcradio2/2015/09/02/a-just-cause–abuse-corruption-within-the-bureau-of-prisons).
“I
am wrongly-convicted and have spent the past three years in prison,”
says David Banks (IRP6). “I have seen the worst from federal agents,
prosecutors and judges who ignored our innocence, but I cannot stress
enough that the rogue officials in my case don’t represent the law
enforcement community at-large as they do not in other prominent cases
in the media involving the shooting of unarmed black people,” adds
Banks. “We must judge each police officer, prosecutor and judge by the
content of their character and not the color of their uniform or the
title of their job. The senseless killing of police officers only brings
more pain and suffering to families and children. And it is
demoralizing to the thousands of responsible police who protect the
public without abusing their power,” concludes David Banks (IRP6).
“We
must never become detached from our sympathy for the victims of 9/11 or
the injustice suffered by the IRP6, neither forget the tremendous
sacrifices of our first responders, or fail to show our appreciation for
both the fallen and living heroes who risk their lives to keep us safe
every day,” says Lamont Banks. “We must continue to be vigilant in our
efforts to combat the scourge of terrorism and embrace solutions, like
IRP’s CILC software, that improves our overall efficiency and bolsters
the information sharing capabilities of our law enforcement,” adds
Lamont Banks. “There is just too much at stake,” concludes Banks.
