Michael Balboni appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight and shared his thoughts on law enforcement’s passive approach to protesters in Durham, North Carolina:

“The purpose of a police officer is to protect life and property and preserve the peace… Good policing involves intelligence. It involves people on the street, knowing what’s going to happen, anticipating the violence that could erupt, and putting resources to apply them… That’s part of the irony here. You have to establish the rule of law. There is no protected speech that is violent.”

This announcement by New York State Senator George Amedore reflects the Senator's commitment to supporting and assisting the creation and implementation of cutting-edge technology. This is one of the many reasons the Senate Majority Leader appointed Senator Amedore to the Senate's Committee on Science, Technology, Incubation and Entrepreneurship.

The Senator has found a great partner to implement this type of technology in Dr. Anthony Bacchi. Dr. Bacchi witnessed the antiquated way in which long-term care was being delivered and decided that it had to change. Telistat is an innovative paradigm shift in health care that is a patient centered, technology driven and outcome changing health care delivery system.
