    Prepare to Defend Yourself with Extreme Brutality

    One minute your minding your own business walking out of the grocery store, the next minute you’re confronted by an individual or individuals who would do you harm. Are you mentality and physically prepared to act quickly and without remorse?

    Most of our readers will never go out into public seeking a confrontation. But there is no doubt that trouble will find some of us. Take, for example, Mark LaVelle, a suburban dad and father of four, who was recently attacked by a mob that kicked in his door and beat him while his wife and kids watched and listened from the second floor of their home. He and his family were at the mercy of their attackers:

    ABOUT 11 P.M. on Sept. 9, dozens of youths with bats and pipes descended on a tidy residential area of Port Richmond looking for white teens who allegedly had attacked an African-American kid at Stokely Playground a couple of hours earlier.

    Two fearful white teens spotted Mark LaVelle on Indiana Avenue near Belgrade Street and asked for help. Suddenly, the mob appeared. LaVelle, who said that he didn’t know the two kids, who looked to be 13 or 14, ran with them into his nearby house.

    ” ‘We got you, you white mother——-!’ ” LaVelle said he heard someone yell in the “mob” of black and Hispanic youths.

    With the two teens hiding in the house, LaVelle, 5 feet 10, 220 pounds, a well-known sports-league organizer and coach in the community, went outside to try to calm the angry mob.

    They were standing on his steps. One shouted, ” ‘Something’s going to happen now!’ ”

    But the attackers pounded on his front windows and kicked his wooden door so hard, it flew open and some of them entered his house.

    “The first guy hits me with a pipe. The second guy knocks me in the face. All I’m hearing is my wife and kids screaming,” said LaVelle, who feared that the next time they saw him, he would be in a casket.

    He said that he was able to push the attackers out the door, but then a third man – who had a gun – tried to extend his arm. LaVelle grabbed onto the gunman’s lower arm and shoulder so he couldn’t raise the weapon. Then, police sirens screamed in the neighborhood, and the mob turned and ran.

    Mr. LaVelle’s experience should be a warning to us all. You may not be looking for it, but sometimes trouble will find you. If you are not prepared to deal with it, then there is a distinct possibility that you’ll end up in a casket, as LaVelle feared when he was being attacked.

    To be sure, Mr. LaVelle made a mistake in the heat of the moment by trying to quell the crowd when emergency responders had been called and were on their way. Unless the police are unavailable due to wide spread chaos, there is no reason you should attempt to confront a mob of rabid dogs while your defenseless family is in your home.

    Nonetheless, this situation and the many other similar instances we’ve be exposed to over our lifetimes are proof positive that if you’re not readily assessing threats around you it could prove fatal.

    In his Spring 2011 Trends Journal trend forecaster Gerald Celente provides subscribers some key insights in Mental Conditioning for Self-Defense, Security, and Survival from his long-time self defense trainer Bradley J. Steiner. Among a host of fantastic self defense tips, Professor Steiner discusses the “combat color code” – something we strongly urge you to implement in your daily routine, especially when out in public venues. While some might call it paranoid, we suggest that paranoia is a self defense mechanism, and Professor Steiner’s combat color code will help to put threats into perspective, which helps to reduce stress, anxiety and fear because your aware of your surroundings:

    You must be attack minded. This means always being prepared for the moment when you need to attack. There is a practical “combat color code” that helps develop the habit of setting the mind. Colors easily allow you to remember where on the scale of awareness you should be.

    WHITE: Unready. Unprepared. Avoid being “mentally in white,” except when you are in a place that is entirely under your control, and you are with people you know and trust.

    YELLOW: Relaxed and alert. This means that whenever you are out and about in the world, you are always aware and alert to what is going on around you, and to anyone who is physically near you. (Try this next time you’re outfor a walk or in the supermarket. Staying aware and alert is much more difficult than you might imagine.) Commit to living in “Yellow.”

    ORANGE: Alarm. In Yellow you say to yourself: “This fellow is approaching me”; in Orange you say: “I may have to take this guy off the count.” In Orange you are ready to go! Your physical demeanor does not change, and thus you provoke and telegraph nothing. But you’ve set yourself so that any indication of physical violence will trip your wire, and you will snap into . . .

    RED: Attack! And this is exactly what you do. The danger is clear and imminent, and you go.

    99.9% of the time you will be in the white, yellow or orange color code levels. But once you’ve determined a Red Alert scenario – and it will likely happen automatically within a very short time frame measured in milliseconds  - there should be no stopping you.

    Once the conflict turns red, all bets are off and you must act with speed, confidence, efficiency and extreme brutality.

    The only way you’ll be able to achieve this is with the proper training, not just at your local gun range or karate dojo, but through personal examination and “war-gaming” of scenarios. Professor Steiner continues:

    Training your psyche as well as your body to deal with emergencies is certainly the best and perhaps the only effective way to prepare for the looming global socio-economicturmoil. Acquiring the confidence that accompanies survival skills allows you to protect your loved ones, as well.

    There is a saying that “toughtimes never last, but tough people do.” Too many think that “tough” means merely physically tough. That is just a part of it. Often, in adult life, the mentally toughest win — even in a physical fight. And there can be no doubt that when confronting and preparing for hard times there is very little that will assist you more than conditioning your mind for serious combat — acquiring the warrior’s mindset. Even if you never have to use it! Young and old possess the potential to learn enough to adequately defend themselves. Women may not be as strong as men, but through proper training they can acquire the capacity to disable a much larger and stronger attacker. No one need be an expert, and no one needs to be in his or her physical prime in order to be able to protect himself in an emergency.

    You must assume that any attack on your person or your family is unpredictable. You have no way of knowing the intentions of the person who has chosen to be aggressive and physically confront you. Are they intending to just push you? Punch you? Kill you? Always assume the worst case scenario, and as such, respond in kind. Anyone who is willing to aggressively attack you without provocation must be assumed to be mentally unstable and capable of going all the way. You must be willing to go all the way as well.

    One key point we want to make is that when engaged in a confrontation of this nature, you can no longer act defensively. You must, at this point, become the attacker.

    If you have a concealed firearm, use it. If no firearm is available, use any weapon that is available – a stick, rock, bottle, lamp, keys, even a rolled up newspaper – because it is better to attack with a weapon than to fight empty handed. As Professor Steiner suggests, you should only resort to fighting with your feet and hands if those are the only weapons you have available.

    But if you happen to only have hands and feet when the confrontation starts you need to be thinking in terms of maximum damage – gouge eyes, tear ears, rip hair, hyper-extend a knee with below-the-waist kicks, break an elbow, spear hand attacks to the neck – essentially utilizing any technique that will rapidly disable the enemy with the most crushing blow available. Keep in mind you may be dealing with multiple attackers, so you will need to act fast as you shift from one threat to the next, so each strike should be measured and targeted at vital areas.

    All rules should go out the window in a self defense situation. Here’s an example:

    Police say a woman had just finished praying at St. John’s Church at Atlantic Street when she was approached by a man Thursday night while exiting out a side door.

    Stamford police captain Richie Conklin says the man asked if he could hug the woman.
    When she said no, he allegedly knocked her down and then grabbed and attempted to rape her.

    “During that attack, he stuck his tongue into her mouth and she bit off a large portion of his tongue, which we recovered at the crime scene,” said Conklin. “There was an extreme amount of blood at the scene.”

    Conklin says it was a big chunk.

    The attacker was nabbed by police when he turned up seeking medical aid at a walk-in clinic in Stamford.

    One thing is for sure – the attacker never saw it coming. Brutal. Effective. Life saving.

    While having the right mindset is certainly important, it wouldn’t hurt to acquire training in the weapons mentioned above (including your hands and feet!). Head to the range regularly because shooting accuracy is a depreciating skill. Spending one to two hours weekly in a self defense class utilizing weapons training, as well as open hand techniques, will certainly increase your chances of survival during a confrontation. One recommendation in this regard is to seek out true self defense classes, as opposed to “sport” style fighting. You are not interested in scoring points in a competition. What you want is “battlefield application” – the kind of techniques that have been tried, tested and survived for centuries on battlefields throughout the world.

    Above all, be prepared to face brutality by responding in kind – with overwhelming brutality that will surprise, disarm and neutralize the threat with extreme prejudice. You must be ready to take it all the way – your life and the safety of your family may depend on it.

            About 3 weeks ago I noticed all the ridiculous name calling and attacks that made no sense what so ever. I figured out that there was a group that seemed to make anything that wasn’t msm as wrong and ridicule it(probably democrats since that seems to be their forte lol). I just want one of them to share :D Is this an office job w/ bennies or are they working out of their home and paid by the comment?

            Does our big brother and big sister really think that the American people are so dumb and gullible that all it takes to change our mind is ridicule? Do individual commentators really think that name calling is all it takes to make a person into a sheep? Dumb-asses. No wonder the leaders are taking our country to hell…

            Funny you post this, I have noticed here and other websites, forums. An increase in mindless pointless attacks. No real replys, just your a racist or fat white guy type remarks. If you notice there are never any facts presented just the same whinning. i beleive the true colors are being shown by the urban youths and paid mouth pieces who go around making the same your racist statments. They are old and no longer hold any weight.

            I thought maybe there lives are so pathetic they need to attack others over the computer to make themseleves feel better.

            Over the last month it has increased, here too if anyone hasn’t noticed.

            I’m fairly certain that nearly all the comments on this post are either just a handful of people or one person arguing with his/herself on both sides in order to drag the conversation in the direction of race war. Race has nothing to do with it at all.

      • Sam, It just so happens that one of the stories excerpted above involved people of different races. The report itself is a current event, so I chose to use it as an example. For me, the color of the people involved is irrelevant to the general point of the article, which was to bring to light the speed, unpredictability and brutality of an unprovoked attack.

        The color of someone who chooses to attack unprovoked makes absolutely no difference as to what the severity of the response should be from the one being victimized.

        Thanks.

        Mac

        • While color should be of no issue, you would have to be a blind person to not see that multiple black communities of youths have been “packing,” as I call it, in order to harm other races. My family consists of 1/3 blacks, 1/3 whites, and 1/3 hispanic, with some Native American and Filipino throw in, so I really do not care if you call me a racist…that old “sticks and stones” adage, and that “offensive” movement does NOT work on me –.what is going on is wrong on all levels. And for anyone to keep using that “poor me, my great-great-great-great-great grand-daddy was a slave” is a bunch of crap. There are very few ethic groups around that do not have some type of “being slaves” in their history…Native Americans come to mind, yet you do not see Native American packs beating people up. And don’t plead that it’s poverty causing the problem, because, again, some of the Native American bands have some of the deepest poverty problems.

          What should be of interest is that during times like these, most nationalities band together and become very aggressive and nationalistic. Why would we expect any different INSIDE America’s borders? Whatever is coming is going to be the most hideous conflagration ever known to man.

          As an aside, I am finding that more and more morons have been typing verbal-attack-type comments on various prepping websites; case in point, the first two comments. Makes me wonder.

            You better make sure you can get a jury to believe that because I am here to tell you that the DA will be sure to pick 12 anti-gun individuals. And the DA’s who have a “score to settle” and are dam good at their game will come fully armed. Pardon the pun. I dont care what the law is in your state or what “case study” of this or that individual was, in the real world, the law happens in that courtroom ON that day. You pull the trigger, you better be dam sure you know what you are doing and you better be able to keep your mouth shut until your lawyer arrives before you dig yourself a hole. “Putting 2 in them” might sound great right now, sitting at your computer, but I would like to see how you actually handle it if you are given that opportunity. I for one would rue the day I have had to take a life. I don’t care how much of a scumbag they are or what there crime has been in the past. No disrepesct intended, but the reality of pulling the trigger is a lot different. You’d better hope you can handle it. As a CC holder, I make dam sure every time I go out.

If charges are filed against him by some lib POS DA, he’ll have a legion of attorneys working pro bono and the NRA with him in court. HIS attorneys get a say in the jury as well.

            Read the NRA’s “America’s 1st Freedom”. They have a section called “Armed Citizen”, where they give examples of people using a gun in self defense. Often, there’s a quote from the cop saying the perp deserved it.
            Get a carry permit. Don’t be afraid to use it. The ‘mob’ comes for you some day, you’ll be glad to be able to defend yourself with more than words.
            Better yet, get the heck out of the inner cities. They’re about ready to explode anyway.

            Have a great day!

          Hey God’s Cremation, You must not be in Florida! Because you DEFINITELY don’t have a clue as to how it works here!

          Our SD laws and castle doctrine does a very good job of protecting your right to stay alive. As long as you are justified (truly) in your actions – You won’t find a prosecutor or grand jury that will return a bill on you. Everybody knows what’s up with crime and assaults down here. Hell, even a lot of the libtard democrats down here are pro self-defense amazingly enough!…at least the ones that count!

          If you feel your life is truly in danger and the evidence/scenario supports it…the perp ends up dead, you end up with a “no bill” and the family can cry “My baby dint do Nuffin’” all day long but guess what? THEY CAN’T SUE! THEY HAVE NO LEGAL RECOURSE FOR ANYTHING!

          We have what’s called the “Stand your ground” Law here!
          You may defend yourself from physical assault ANYWHERE you have the right to be in public!

          This ain’t “Up North” where the ant-gun, anti-self defense pu$$ies run the show!

          I will give all of you one piece of advice though and that is this; if you find yourself in one of these unfortunate scenario’s, all you tell the cops is that you were coming from “A” to “B” when the perp approached and comitted the threatening act at which point you drew your weapon and (and this is the important part) shot & you kept shooting until YOU FELT the threat was averted. NEVER SAY YOU SHOT TO KILL! After that, tell them you will be happy to discuss it further AFTER you have called/retained council but, for now this is all you have to say and you feel sick and your chest is tight “please call an ambulance as you would like to be checked out! Most likely, this will actually be true after a life threatening event such as this. Conversation over!

          • Yep. You nailed it too. We don’t need no more Yankees coming down here telling us how they doi n Ohio or Joisy.
            Jeeez. Youse guy got guns. Yep, I can walk down my street at 10 PM in total confidende im myself. my neighbors and my laws.
            After , of course, I have to shoot the bad guy ( I Really really never hope to see tghis happen ) I WILL call 911, I will make sure the first thing on the tape is my fear for my liofe before I hit the go button on that `1911A1, I will explain my attempts to staunch the bleeding, I will ID myself by clothing and physical description to the dispatcher ans I will NOT be holding my weapon when they arrive. I will holding my backup and my badge.
            I know this owrks. You should research and learn how to cover yourself if you cannot avoid the use of deadly force. The more you do or can do to avert that use, the better it looks for you as the investigation continues.ALso….. I Used X brand of ammo cause the local police use that for efective one shot astops, I shot twice because that is how I was trianed ( the double tap) I carry ther ____ because that is what the local Police carry and id reliable, effective and safe to use…and YES I meant to shoot. Never try to backtrack and turna justifiable ashooting into an accident. Just go to th nearest prison and chain yourself to the fence. IF They read you your rights….take them. If not they just want to know what happened. Do not risk a prosecution cause you want to be understood. Rights = shut the f*ck up abnd get me my lawyer. IF they chanrge you then…..they were gonna charge you asnyway and now you have nt hung yourself by some cop who may have an agenda. I have asked a lot of people “what happened” first and told them I want to know first. THAT is why I haven;’t read you your rights yet. Off the record. That is bvery frequently done especially if it is random violence without any personal connectioon or drama attached. Rest assured your life will probably change but through it all remember you are NOT the one in the body bag. There is no second place to that.

        Consider these perspectives from a black man I admire. In this article about Hating White People there’s more descriptions of similar attacks:

        America’s New Racists

        “Most racist assaults are committed by blacks. … Racist black attacks are not only against whites but also against Asians. … These racist attacks can, at least in part, be attributed to the black elite, who have a vested interest in racial paranoia.”

        http://lewrockwell.com/williams-w/w-williams86.1.html

        Race and Economics

        “How might one explain yesteryear’s lower black unemployment and greater labor force participation? The usual academic, civil rights or media racial discrimination explanation for black/white socio-economic differences just wouldn’t hold up.”

        http://lewrockwell.com/williams-w/w-williams95.1.html

        Is Profiling Racist?

        “Not every choice based on race represents racism and if you think so, you risk misidentifying and confusing human behavior. The Rev. Jesse Jackson once said, “There is nothing more painful for me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery — then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”"

        • He should have opened fire when they actually penetrated the door. While on the phone with 911. He would have bnt have had to worry he may been seen the next time in a coffin that way. I answer my door with a Colt, Glock 9m/m ( mod 26) or S%W 44 special Mod 624-back pocket. Neighbors, family and friends don;’t think shit about it. If you come to my door I do not care what you may think. I often put my badge on my belt right next to a nice nickeled 1911 series 70. If it’s the guy who offeres to cut down the dead tree, ior someone wanting to cut the grass. I dfon;’t unduly alrm them that way. I look out before I open it anyway. I recntly saw 3 disenfranchised urban yutes. full hoodies up in summer. approach my neighbor’s door in classi c bumrush formation. One by the mailbox on the street, on bottom of porch steps and one at the door. I knew that had the wrong house cauase next door to him on the other side HAD BEEBN a little dope whore. All the thugs came in and out all the tiome there. SHe was trading good for dope. Her grandparetns are incredibly stupid enablers. They had no idea what was in their house while they slept. Stole he grandma’s gun to pay for dope she owed money for. Her mam is a hooker in Fla. Her daddy ( 40 something) looked like a trailer park hiphop with his tired old hiphop clothing ( 40+ now!) driving a pos car leeching of his parents wearing hislittle backwards hat and busting l;oud rap out the window of his car while his trailer park girlfriend wth 3 colors hair and 4 inch presson nails in her quickmart uniform and him would fought in the driveway. Reqal dickheads who will probably end up dead from the trash their grandaughter has trailed thru the neighborhood and entertained in the basement den while the dumbass 60 somethings slpet theu the run up to their own potential murders.
          Anyway i watched them that warm day hoodies up and all knowing something was bad wrong-they had the qrong house!!! And luckily for my stupid neighbor Jerry…….he didn’t hear them cause he is mos’ deaf. When I called hi later and tried to explain to him what had almost happened it was like discussing E=MC@ with a cow. He reassured me that the .38 by his bed in the nightstand was suffieicnent to protect his household fully knowing he was too stupid ( but but …but this is_______) mentality to begin to grasp. I told him OK. Next time I se them coming ON FOOT w/o a car 16-19 yoa. I WOULD NOT STAND IN MY BACK DOOR UNDER COVER OF MY SCEENED IN PORCH IN THE DARK WITH A WINCHESTER SINCE HE HAD IT SO UNDER CONTROL. HE STILL DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT ALMOST HAPPENED. I do. I would have won if they’d ben one more house off in their navigation. This is the real world. This is not supposed to happen in my neighborhood. I guess that would have helped his family get over his and his equally stupid wife’s deaths all the more easily. I thought Forrest Gump was a derivatively stupid movie ( except for the school guy getting to do Sally Feilds) but “Stupid is as Stupid Does seem to apply here and elsewhere. Word to the wise is sufficent.

          Canada’s suffering would occur because the economy is based on “exporting” goods and services.

          The goods and services sold to the US would obviously take a dive, however, the goods and services sold to other countries that still have a decent economy would be untouched. Some branches of companies that are headquartered in the US would still be able to remain open (think Ford, Chrysler, GM, Wal-Mart, Dominion Foods, etc.)as long as Canada’s economy allows people to continue purchasing. Here, they consider those to be “North American” companies, rather than simply “American” companies.

          The racism I have seen in Canada is directed more towards the Native North Americans (I think that is the politically correct term these days) than anyone else. Not that it couldn’t happen but you really don’t see too many groups of thugs running around Ontario. Crime is very low here.

I don’t believe black people are coming to hurt me, and I am white. Why? Because that is ignorant. By the way Sam, minorities commit more crime by percentage and a higher disproportionate amount relative to their population, that is a cold hard fact.

      An armed society is a polite society..I doubt if any of the local thugs in my area would even want to mess with me if they knew i was packing..thats why the packing with out advertising is so important..its your game changer, and the element of surprise has changed to your side , when you choose to deliver it.

      Points to remember:

      If someone is in your face and you don’t want to hurt them; just take your finger and poke / push in the “hollow” spot beneath their adam’s apple, HARD. No matter how big they are; they will back up. It will probably piss them off when they realized they were manhandled by one finger; so be ready to hurt them.

      Any soft part of the body is a valid and easy strike point. The eyes are prime as is the throat, nose, solar plexis ( right below the breast bone, but above the mass of stomach muscles ). The groin area is well known and most attackers will automatically prepare to protect it. But few think of their knees or the tops of their feet. The top of a foot is always vulnurable if they are standing. One good stomp and they are not going to be chasing you, at least not without a limp. Most people stand lock kneed.. a good strong kick at the top of the knee, pushing backwards or at the side of a knee if VERY painful.

      Their fingers and thumbs are vulnurable as well.. all the strength in a finger or thumb is directed towards grasping something.. bending it backwards is very easy and very painful.

      Reaching around the back of a persons head and grabbing a handfull of hair at the front hairline and pulling back hard is almost guarenteed to open the throat area up to a fist, forearm or even the edge of a palm. A strong hit to the throat will at a minimum incapacitate an attacker for a few minutes.

      Running is always better than fighting; but only if you win the race. Just a brief strike in the right area can insure that you will win the race.

        Forgot one thing.. if they are striking at you; you don’t have to duck and cover.. you want to keep your eyes on them. You don’t need to stop their blow; you only need to “deflect” the trajectory. Few people have the presence of mind and skill to redirect a blow mid delivery. Even a slight circular motion “slap” at a incoming fist will deflect it enough to miss it’s intended target.

        It takes a lot of energy to deliver a blow, it takes a lots of energy ( and pain ) to receive a blow; deflecting a blow requires very little strength or effort and after only a few attempts; the attacker will either tire, relent or get frustrated and try to rush / grab you making him off balance and again, easy to deflect and avoid.

        Also never cease your awareness. Someone should have never gotten into your face to begin with. If someone is approaching you with attitude and hard words you are allowed to assume they mean violence to you and you do not have to back down. You may even use lethal force if you feel your life is threatened. At least in the state of Florida. He said he was going to kill me, officer. Part of survival is not being in those situations or places to begin with. Most certainly no one is getting in my face as I’ll be backing up drawing my blade which I hand forged just for this occasion. By that time it’s too late to be getting your gun out from under your shirt / holster.

          NRA also has Personal Protection inside the home and Personal protection outside the home. The primary difference is that outside the home, you WILL be drawing from a holster and a handbag and firing. You will also fire from various angles and while moving. Classes usually run < $300 (each instructor sets the price) for each class.

          For those who do NOT want a firearm, NRA also has Refuse to be a Victim which deals with passive means of protection (i.e. locks, attitudes, structures, etc).

      I’m gonna try to avoid using and race cards in this reply but it may sound like it though. So, I do apaologize to anyone I offend in advanced.

      The reason we are seeing black and hispanic gangs emerging into a higher level of criminals is due to the changing economy. Up till the massive farm corps of today, nearly 50% of the population had farms and migrant farm workers consisted of mainly black.

      Here in apple country I witnessed the turn from black to hispanic and now to Hatian farm hands. As the farms get more automated and less workers are needed the blacks and hispanics started to look for other jobs.

      The whites moved out of the cities and into suburbs while blacks and hispanic moved into the city. The facorty jobs that white people held had also vansihed leaving black and hispanics with little jobs oppertunities.

      Some went to college and got good paying jobs but the majority of young black and now hispanic males find they make more money selling drugs on the street.

      The gangs are a offshoot from the drug enterprise. Must keep in mind the blacks and hispanics are not gonna give up making hundreds of dollars in a week to go work at McDonald’s for min wage and to be honest I don’t blame them.

      The economy in the drug trade is really good right now. Matter of fact it’s so good the hispanics have migrated to the cities and given up working long hours on a farm for next to nothing.

      The illegals that are coming here are not coming here to get a job at Walmart but rather the drug trade and gangs.

      Currently we are in another movement of races. Young whites are seen by blacks as the upper middle class even though in reality the middle class is fading. They wouldn’t be attacking whites unless they feel like whites are a threat.

      I don’t see a lot of white druglords (mainly just redneck pot growers) but if this depression forces once middle class white americans into the cities for drug dealings…it will be seen as comption and a threat. Especially since blacks and hispanics tend to believe if they rob or attack a white they will get a more harsher prison sentance.

      So, right now the blacks and hispanics will want to make the whites fear coming into the cities (and they have succeeded) to protect thier drug dealing areas.

      Racism is and always has been seeded in economics. It still is just this economic reality happens to be the drug trade.

        It’s funny, recently two friends and I went to Baltimore to catch a night baseball game. Afterwards we hit up a few bars/clubs in the area. Around 1am leaving the club the three of us (2 white males and 1 Asian male) were walking down the block only to be offered drugs 4 times, sex once and at the end of the very same block was a city cop in his patrol car not giving a damn at all. As we continued on to the parking garage around the corner on the opposite side of the road was a group of about 25 black – mostly men and women. The very first thought in my mind was “flash mob”. Was that racist of me or cautious? My mind immediately scanned the area for “quick escape” routes. I started thinking how my friends would react if we were attacked. I couldn’t just leave them. As we walked toward the group (still opposite side) we came to a cross walk and they crossed to our side making an already tense situation worse. I reached in my pocket and maneuvered a key in between my fingers thinking I’m not going down without a fight.

        They passed without incident but it definitely got me thinking about putting myself in that situation in the first place. That’s what I get for being in downtown Baltimore at 1am. I don’t think of myself as racist, but had that been a crowd of 25 white kids I certainly would have not been as apprehensive – and that bothers me.

          Thing is flash mobs aside…blacks in the hood KNOW that an attack on a white person who is not there for drugs means IMMEDIATE capture by police. Read about that incident when. A mob of white teens beat a 49 year old black man getting off work senseless. Then one teen boy and two girls came back and ran him over with. A truck as he was trying to stand up. Killed him. They did it because they thought they could get away with it. His a name was James Anderson . They thought he was homeless…he wasn’t. Prosecutors were trying to see if the kids were involved in other attacks on blacks. They’d have gotten away with it if it weren’t caught on the hotels video surveillance camera.

      • While I can agree with some points you make, I have to say that I grew up in Detroit on Six Mile and Evergreen…my family finally moved away when 9 out of 10 houses on our block were boarded up. I was just talking to a white kid who recently moved away from D-town. While talking with him, I asked him how life was for him while in D-town. He said he was left pretty much alone. The biggest point he made is that no matter what the economic background, the black kids always preferred to talk and act like street hoods. He stated it used to make him laugh when the neighborhood doctor’s kids and other rich black people’s kids would talk and act ghetto. So it has nothing to do with “upper middle class” against “poor” black children at all, but has everything to do with the fact of “whitey” and “power-thrill highs.”

        I have to say that it is NOT the black elders that are causing the problems. They are some of the coolest, most amazing people I have ever met, but it IS the current generation. Do ya think Hollywood has anything to do with that?…not to mention the disrespect that gets taught by singers and sports players.

        The real ironic thing is that educated blacks do not want their children hanging around the ghetto-type hoods, and so they too move out when the “hoods” move in. Can you picture Pres. Obama letting hoods hang out with his girls?

        Lack of jobs and severe economic depression is cutting across all ethnic groups, but I haven’t seen or read about too many other ethnic groups mobbing and packing. When has the Asian or the Native American communities last had a real good mob steal-and-dash adventure?

        And while you don’t think there are a lot of white druglords, you just aren’t looking in the right places. You would never step foot in an Appalachian marijuana field. We got plenty of it where I currently live. This county is actually known for the drug trade. The only difference is that between the white, black, and Hispanic drug lords, the Hispanics have the backing and helpful assistance of our Federal Government, including a nice supply of weapons.

        Yes Rachel, you are right, its all about economics and economics is all aboput education. It won’t get any better for any youngsters without education, only worse.

        The key to escaping poverty and an economy with fewer opportunity is education. the contraction won’t last forever. The PTB do not want young people today to get an education. They want to keep them dumb and dependent on the corp.

        Watch carefully and you can see that propaganda emerging from the LSM and from globalists on the Internet and in forums like this one.

        If the lame stream media is pushing lack of education, saying that kids do not need to go to college today, you can bet its because they do not want YOU, or YOU, or YOU, competing with their kids who WILL go to college, for the fewer positions that will be available in the USA as globalism expands.

        Now is a great time for kids to borrow dollars that will dramatically erode in value over time with double digit inflation to get a professional degree, if they want one.

            That is why the cost of a college education has soared, to make it affordable for the wealthy, but not necessarily for the talented. And only the kids of the wealthy will be able to afford it. Its called “pulling the ladder up”.

            A smart kid and their parents will recognize that now is a great time to borrow SOME money and repay that low cost loan with rapidly depreciating dollars (double digit inflation).

            The average debt of a college grad is less that $50k. Thats also the starting salary for MBA’s. Science majors get a lot more.

            You didn’t have what it takes to make it, thats why you dropped out. Thats why you live in your mother’s basement with one hand collecting farts and the other on your game boy. It takes grit to succeed. You don’t have it. You have a loser mentality.

            I have seen your type before. I was born on the other side of the tracks. I just refused to stay there. One of my friends in high school was just like you; coddled by mummy and daddy.

            When he went to college all of his costs were paid by his parents. He didn’t even have to do his own laundry, he sent it out to be washed or cleaned. He had everything, including a new convertable and money to burn. He lasted less than a year.

            The last time I saw him he told me he was passing out brooms from a supply closet for the local utility making $10 hour and it was a “gravy job”.

      I think, culturally speaking, we’ve done our children a disservice. We’ve taught them to turn the other cheek, just walk away from an argument, “just because someone else does it, that doesn’t make it right.”

      Most of our kids are woefully unprepared to develop an attitude that allows them to go on the offensive. We’ve trained that out of them with “respectable” behavior and sending them to school to be trained not to fight back, not to come across as agressive and have the words “ZERO TOLERANCE” drilled into their heads.

      My 10 year old daughter recently got suspended from school for taking a camping tool (which looks like a pocket knife but has a dull knife, a fork and a spoon)with which to eat her lunch. (FTR, I told her she was not allowed to take it.)

      I got a phone call from the principal to come and pick her up because she had brought a “weapon” to school. This was on my voicemail with no further info. Imagine my surprise when I arrived at the school to discover it was her camping tool.

      Me: “Was she brandishing the knife at someone?”

        Years ago I lived in So. Cal. One night about 2AM there was a real loud pounding on my front door. Unfortunately at the time I only owned one pistol, a S&W model 6904 9mm, which just happened to be locked in my truck which was locked in the garage. On each side of the front door were narrow windows that we had decided to leave without any treatments. (curtains, etc.) The landing from the stairs was right in behind the front door so anyone on the front porch could see me when I came down the stairs. Looking through the windows I saw about 6 young, black males standing on my front porch. I knew that they could see me and if I tried to make a dash for the garage they’d have been through the door before I ever got near the gun. Well I am not a real big guy but considerably bigger than any one of those kids. (5-11, 240#)

        I yanked that front door open and went outside in my skivvys yelling “what the hell are you doing waking me at two AM? Are you looking for an a$$ whipping?!!”

        One of them said they must’ve got the wrong house and I, very loudly, confirmed that fact and they took off running.

        The neighbor behind me was a correctional officer and he said I handled it perfectly. Had I done anything else I would’ve been sliced, stabbed & possibly shot.

      Good luck….remember you always fall back onto your lowest level of training. That shiny new .45 may make you feel safe but if you have not had any training you will have another thing coming when the SHTF. And watching a few YOUTUBE clips and going to the range a few times does not count as formal training.

        Just, you need to up your .22 and .223 to 5000 rounds each before any other calibers. Then, depending on what SHTF scenario you favor, work on the .308 (or 30/06?) and 12 guage.

        I’d start with the .223 in case lots, the .22 you can pick up brick by brick over time.

        You’ve got enough pistol ammo. Depends on where you live and if/what you plan on hunting. I’ve got plenty of water fowl here, so I’ve got a crap load of shot for the shotguns. If you can deer hunt, I’d start loading up on the .306 and .300.
        You can casually load up on .22LR. Bricks are cheap.
        And I agree with the case lots of .223.

      Shotguns do tend to command respect. We have a couple Mossburg 500 Pump shotguns. There is nothing that has such a “clunky” action as a Mossburg.

      a subdivision where the houses are close together…you don’t have to worry about killing your neighbor in has bed. I figure that if the shotgun scares the bad guys away….then it has done it’s job. I don’t have to replace drywall, & repaint…..or have the cops here for hours filling out reports about the dead guys….
      My sone e-mailed me some info on a new shotgun coming out…I think it held 12 rounds + one in the chamber. I think it was a Kel-Tec & was going to be around $800.00 or so. It looked pretty wicked. Here is the link :

      one good elbow strike to the jaw of an attacker….be it horizontally or vertically applied will always be a game-changer in an assault….to get space to use it try head butting the nose or the vererable booger strike.

      What is a booger strike??

      You ram your finger up your attacker’s nostril with all the strength you have crushing all the tiny little turbinate bones within and causing his eyes to water (long fingernails and big rocks on rings make this even more effective)…just make sure you don’t have a finger in his (or her) mouth because this technique will cause so much instant pain they could bite your finger off.

      Then give him that elbow strike to the jaw and run like hell.

Then if the perp follows or continues it…you have teken steps to wothdraw. I woukld prefer it to useing the deasdy force. For immediate attacks like flash mobs, you don’t have that luxury.

      • AAAAAAAANT! If the threat subsides and you still shoot, you will probably get charged. Shithead sympathizers as witnesses is a big enough problem w/o taking that chance. If the threat subsides…or ths thug says ” I’m through with it” or says anytghing cconcilliatorty you beter walk or run away. W./o the immediate threat of deadly force or force from say multiple persons you are begging for it all to blow up in your face. Case in point the classic case of shooting after the other has attempted to diengage from the confrontation and the shooter saying he had no chance but to shoot and then bang……they find 3 buckshot in the palms of the perps hand. Case closed…prison is coming now…. probation if you are lucky or a judges son…. There ain’t no getting around that. Evidence that you cannot copntemplate can bite you..like service station security tape etc Unseen wwitnesses. I won’t try to hunt that dog.

Pick up a history book friends. Cowardice is nothing new to criminals, and color is not on the application form.

And knowing brain dead Americans, it’ll happen with both of their backs turned towards their real enemies. There are actually people I’m hearing from on these sites with pride so far out in front of intelligence that I swear they’d get shot because the guy in front of them of a different race wasn’t “good enough” to take their bullet.

      Get it figured out fast. There are those of us who no longer have time for this kind of crap and will consider those who put this in the way of what’s important to be no better than the enemy.
