Mas Ayoob, a man with character.
I graduated from LFI I earlier this year. Last week I was privledged to spend a week studying history with Mas and Gail. While he was here my son Danny got in the face of some gang bangers.
My son volunteered to teach n the toughest inner-city school in Tucson. He wants to make a diffeence in the lives of the kids growing up in the wort circumstances yo canimagine. He has been extremly successful. Because of that he was targeted by several adult Bangers who threatened him and the principal. Security escorted him from the school. On his way home he called me and I was in a store with Mas and Gail.
Mas took the phone and instructed him on exactly how to handle the situation.
I went to Tucson to assist while Mas kept his cell on so I could call.
Saturday we all met and Mas again gave him the kind of pep talk he needed.
Two days ago things came to a head and Mas gave him very specific advice on how to act. When he did exactly what Mas told him to do the police who were questioning him stopped in their tracks, smiled, asked who was giving him advice. He said his Dad had attended LFI and was on line with Mr. Ayoob. They smiled, said, "We have a warrent out for the adult who is responsible for this. Tell Mr. Ayoob thanks."
As you guys take his class you have to understand that when he say's he will be there for you he absolutely means it.

Mas Ayoob ALWAYS has demonstrated to me that he remains interested in the general welfare of his former students. I consider him a valuable resource and friend.

Glad things worked out. But, above is an odd remark IMO. Since your son was not a banger, was in fact a school teacher, what in the world were the police questioning him about that he would want them to stop asking? And why would they stop over anything he said except "I want a lawyer."
I'm sure there is a reasonable answer to my thoughts, which might be useful to us all if you are able to share it.
We could all use the education--especially since it originated with Mas.

It's pretty easy to know when someone, not a LEO, "knows" all the right things to say to affect an arrest.
In short, they are giving you the details you need to make the arrest. It's not common for people to know these things, and you have to "pry" the answers out of them. That's why the cop "clued in" on to the fact that the OP's son had been given advice on how to handle the situation I'm guessing.

Oh gosh, I should have explained. As soon as he was attacked the bangers claimed it was him who did the attacking. By being able to (Can You Articulate) articulate he was able to pass the interview quickly.
In the investigation it was found that the father of the banger had 2 outstanding warrants and an order to pick him up was issued. That is where the threats came in and my son and the principal of the school were escorted from the school.
He decided to return to class Friday and neither he nor the Principal will be intimidated.
