    Should Handcuffing and Pressure Points be considered a part of Defensive Tactics?

    My street experience has demonstrated to me that pressure points tend to escalate violence at least as often as it demotivates it......in other words, those who are drunk, high on drugs, or otherwise experiencing a mind/body disconnect, tend to respond to pressure points with aggression, if they...

    Running is the best defense

    Is it better to jump, swim, climb or drive? Depends on the situation. Anyone who says it's always better to 'run' is entirely missing the point.....it's better to run 'When'? When the other guy(s) can outrun you? When you've got a couple of small children with you? One should be prepared to...

    Top Mexican Drug Lord Captured

    The problem is the massive profits of the illegal drug trade.......so long as there are billions and billions to be made, you'll never stop the thugs from making it no matter what 'war-like activity' you do.. Much like prohibition, it's the illegal nature of the business that is a far worse...

    Top Mexican Drug Lord Captured

    Actually it's american wealth and prosperity that fuels drug trafficking, the poverty is what causes people to SELL drugs. As for tighter borders and shooting smugglers, we can't keep drugs out federal prisons.....how are we going to protect thousands of miles of borders when we can't protect...

    Pepper spray in a black belt test?

    Anyone who makes OC exposure a 'mandatory' part of anything, except law enforcement, security or military training, is asking for severe criminal liability. It should be optional......not a bad idea for adults interested in such, but should be voluntary.

    Guy takes on rioters. Guess what happens.

    I wouldn't justify lethal force......just order the street cleared and then start pepper spraying and busting the heads of anyone who doesn't clear the streets.......Ask....Tell.....Make.........

    Guy takes on rioters. Guess what happens.

    Steel grates over the front window to prevent damage........you're fighting a human wave, so there's really not much in that situation, since the sidewalk and the street are just a couple feet from the storefront, you can't deny access. Now if this were in the center of a large parking lot...

    Top Mexican Drug Lord Captured

    Actually what it will do is create a great deal of violence as factions fight over the scraps.......won't do anything for the flow of drugs. A symbolic victory, at best. And here's why........we try to use the mentality of a 'War' to describe our 'War on Drugs', but it's more like fighting a...

    Ct Prison Hiring Biased?

    No kidding! Different standards for women and men is completely idiocy......unless they are supposed to be doing a different job, which isn't the case........they are dealing with the same individuals and same dangers, so why not the same physical standards? Simple......because they want to...

    Should We Put Cameras On Cops?

    Anyone on here volunteer to have 8 hours of their working day entirely monitored with both audio and video?.......including private conversations had between you and a co-worker? These are always a good idea 'for other people'. I'd volunteer for 'always on' when the Chief and the Mayor...

    Crime Victim Uses Submission Hold; Suspect Eventually Dies. Now What?

    YEP! Felony murder rule should apply......wouldn't that hack the family off.......but the reason they haven't charged him, is they haven't decided to charge the victim or not yet........because charge the suspect would negate the charge against the victim because it would be a tacit...

    Crime Victim Uses Submission Hold; Suspect Eventually Dies. Now What?

    In Missouri it wouldn't be a civil or criminal case........one has the right to use lethal force in defense of self if force is threatened in the commission of a felony.......and the affirmative defense in the criminal case is considered an affirmative defense in the civil case requiring anyone...

    As I said, a 'bully' is a pretty subjective term.........to some touchy/feely people, ANYONE who is 'assertive' is a 'bully'. But bully has become the new term du jour for someone we simply don't have a good feeling about......it's the new 'fascist'.......I suspect it's because we are...

    I think that's because there is a backlash in the culture against it's over-feminization........Ironically enough many of those backlashing are women themselves.

    The reality is that we consider results driven personalities like Ramsay 'Bullies' because we have become an effeminate culture which values 'feelings' over results......how something makes us 'feel' is all important to us.

    Patton was a 'bully' by your definition........but the Nazis feared him more than any Allied general. He 'bullied' his troops during the Battle of the Bulge on forced march across hundreds of miles that was considered impossible to surprise both enemies and allies alike. The 'bullies' you...

    Ooooopss! ;) Patton was a bully.........he bullied his way across Europe kicking the *** of the enemy beyond the abilities of other commanders. The term 'bully' is completely subjective.

    And yet Ramsay is extraordinarily more successful than many 'nice chefs'. Ramsay's way isn't MY way, but to say it doesn't take what he does to be as successful as he is is kind of silly when neither you nor I ARE as successful as he is........so what the hell do we know about what it does or...

    I was half-joking........but............ They don't have to work there, it's a voluntary choice. And i'm sure the rewards for putting up with it far outweigh what one gets working for a 'nicer boss'. Quite frankly, what Ramsey does is no different than the R. Lee Ermey clip.........it's a...

    All we do is show up and take reports huh??

    It is a dangerous job we do, however, i'd be careful about trying to distinguish between officers who die wrestling with a gunman and 'industrial accidents', as over half of the officers going on the wall these days die from traffic related fatalities, which are basically 'industrial accidents'...
