Bravenewfilms Releases Video: The Real Rudy: Radios genre: Just Jihad & Polispeak & Video-Philes

Many Republicans view Rudy Giuliani as the front runner for the GOP nomination and they do so based upon his handling of 9/11. If Bravenewfilms is successful in getting their message out to the public, voters may reconsider their assessment of Giuliani's tenure as the mayor of New York City. The group has recently released another short film which questions the leadership and decision making of Giuliani.

The following video is titled, The Real Rudy: Radios, and it explains the situation surrounding the failure of the New York Fire Department's radios on September 11th. The radios were the same ones used during the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center...the same ones which also failed to function properly during that prior event.

Even worse, in early 2001, the city awarded a lucrative 14 million dollar contract to Motorola for the replacement of the radio system. The radios were put into service without adequate testing and, after a week, the new system was scrapped and the Fire Department returned to the old radios.

Many believe that the high numbers of firefighters killed in the towers resulted from the fact that they were unable to hear the calls to evacuate the building. Evidence suggests that police officers received the communications and many were therefore able to move to safety.

Bravenewfilms has released two other videos detailing Rudy Giuliani's service as "America's Mayor" which can be found here and here.

Radio Communication with a portable hand held of any kind be it Motorola, Kenwood, Harris, etc may not work in steel buildings and stair way shafts. Radios on a belt clip next to your body and equipped with a lapel microphone is one of the worst practices that any group can make. A radio next to your body impedes the signal strength. A hand held radio can only put out 5 watts of power at the very most. Radio Frequency does not propagate in enclosed areas such as vertical pathways like a stair-well or a tunnel. Try keeping a cell call going in an elevator when the doors close. Line of sight and bull horn communications might have been the only positive communication in the given situation. Blaming Politicians or Mayors of the wrong affiliation instead of understanding the laws of physics is a great way to alleviate pain and grievances.
Emergency rescue is a very risky profession; my hat is off to anybody that performs these services.
