When Violence Is The Answer

I just finished this book and it was an excellent read.  Much of what was presented, I already knew as an LEO.  However, it was a great refresher on those points, and also brought new info to light.  Tim Larkin also presents fresh insights and ways of thinking outside the box in which we are conditioned to think.

The author solidly makes the point that violence is a tool and a currency to be traded in.  He teaches that violence must be used in the proper context, pointing out the difference between social aggression and asocial violence.  Drawing on interviews with violent convicts and observation of much prison video footage, along with real life stories from the prisons to the parking lot, Larkin opens the mind to new ways of thinking, both about using the tool of violence and avoiding confrontation.  From the final chapter:  “…being kind when we don’t have to be — because we have the capacity and the tools to be unkind when we need to be.”

Author Larkin echoes the teaching of Krav Maga in that avoidance is best, and not to fight or be provoked is a victory.  Marine General James Mattis said it very well in his statement that one should be professional, be polite, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

You might also want to check some of his other books, such as:  “Survive the Unthinkable.”  Both are great additions to your library and your knowledge base.

 

United Socialist America…You Ready For It?  The 4 Ways They Are Chaining Up Our Liberty While Laughing In The Face Of Our Freedom!  

Justus Knight News

 

It is not often I veer away from technology as a point of discussion on my broadcast.  There are two topics however that are always assured to gain my ire and attention…Socialism and Globalism!  These are the Anti-America sentiments of our modern day world.  Sentiments that use to remain overseas but now permeate the very walls of Capitol Hill.

These Socialist / Globalist Cabal demons laugh in the very face of our Liberty and spew concepts of repressive failed Governments of the World.  They target our majority classes and sell them the snake oil salesmen promises of a better future and equal pay, rights, and liberties.  In actuality, they are selling them the end of America.  The scary part of this story, however, is that we are letting them, electing them into Congress and Senate and now they are even running for President.

Looking Up

situtional awareness

I remember an exercise from the academy where we learned to clear a school.  We learned about light discipline, fields of fire, and looking up.  One ‘bad guy’ hid on top of a refrigeration unit and we almost walked right past him.  Many stories are told of WWII and Viet Nam  where soldiers failed to look up into the trees and snipers shot them or their buddies.  Now I know some folks say ‘don’t look up’ so the surveillance cameras don’t get you, but that means situational awareness goes right out the window.  I’d rather be on camera than be blindsided by a threat.

Put the phone down and nobody will get hurt.
