Fears about public safety have left truckers who deliver freight in many of the affected areas on edge.</p> <p>While it&#039;s been 28 years since truck driver Reginald Denny was pulled from his truck cab and beaten during the 1992 Los Angeles riots following the acquittal of four police officers charged with using excessive force in the beating of black motorist Rodney King, Joe Rajkovacz says he remembers it like it was yesterday.</p> <p>"Before heading out, I was at home in Wisconsin watching the news about the LA riots on television and watched as Denny got pulled from his truck and nearly beaten to death," Rajkovacz, who now serves as the director of governmental affairs for the <a href="https://westrk.org/">Western States Trucking Association</a>, told FreightWaves. "It led to a widely used phrase by truckers that ‘nobody is going to Reginald Denny me.&#039;" </p> <p>Prior to his trucking career, Rajkovacz served as a police officer with the Baraboo Police Department in Baraboo, Wisconsin, for nearly two years in the early 1980s.</p> <p>"It was the only time in my life [LA riots] outside of being in law enforcement I carried a weapon with me in the truck," he said. "I was already loaded up to go and simply hoped the protests would burn themselves out before I got there."</p> <p>He said truck drivers now have access to real-time information about potential protests in riot hot spots across the country, which truckers back in 1992 could only find out about by listening to local radio stations. </p> <p>His advice to any trucker traveling through potential protest areas is to practice good situational awareness.</p> <p>"Don&#039;t go into areas with curfew restrictions and keep ...</p><p><a href=https://www.benzinga.com/news/20/06/16168969/truckers-on-edge-as-civil-unrest-rages-in-major-u-s-cities alt=Truckers On Edge As Civil Unrest Rages In Major U.S. Cities>Full story available on Benzinga.com</a></p> Freight Freightwaves News protests Politics General News Politics General Benzinga Wed, 03 Jun 2020 13:36:35 +0000 FreightWaves 16168969 at https://www.benzinga.com Sundance Media Group Announces Drone Training Reseller Agreement with SYNNEX Corporation https://www.benzinga.com/pressreleases/20/06/r16167177/sundance-media-group-announces-drone-training-reseller-agreement-with-synnex-corporation <p>Agreement Provides Certified Drone Training to Government Agencies and Organizations Across the U.S.</p> <p>Las Vegas, NV, June 03, 2020 --(<a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.pr.com/" rel="nofollow">PR.com</a>)-- <a rel="nofollow" href="https://sundancemediagroup.com/" rel="nofollow">Sundance Media Group</a> today announced an agreement with <a rel="nofollow" href="https://synnex.com/" rel="nofollow">SYNNEX Corporation</a> (NYSE:<a class="ticker" href="https://www.benzinga.com/stock/SNX#NYSE" rel="nofollow">SNX</a>), a leading business process services company, to provide certified drone training to government agencies and organizations across the U.S.</p> <p>SMG specializes in assisting police, fire and private corporations seeking to stand up new small Unmanned Aircraft System drone programs or add sUAS workflows into their existing drone programs.
