The common thread in all of these events is that bodyguards and or law enforcement personnel assigned to protect the individuals mentioned were either injured or killed when the attacks on their principals occurred.
Whether the goal of the attacker is kidnapping or assassination, you the protection agent are also a target simply because the attacker that chooses to attack your client in your presence views you as an obstacle to success that needs to be neutralized.
If you need additional motivation go to any news search and type in assassination, kidnapping or bombings and you will see that these events are still occurring on a daily basis all over the world.
Therefore it is in your best interest to be very good at the art of personal protection or one day you too may be gone! "You are not paid for what you do, you are paid for what you may have to do, and when that time comes, you will be highly underpaid."
