    Thumbs down New Self Defense Technique offered by Police.

    Last night I am headed to bed and I had the 10:00 PM news on. Channel 5 was airing a story about someone who was attacked and robbed. I didn't hear the beginning so I didn't get many details of where, and when, and how, but here are three things the authorities said to do if attacked.

    1 - Walk in groups if possible. (Ok, I'll go with that, there is strength in numbers.)




    2 - Carry a cell phone. (Once again the great and powerful cell phone will protect you, or was that the Great and Powerful Oz? Anyway I don't have a problem with carrying a cell phone but don't count on it protecting you from anything. It is good to have one with you so you can call for an ambulance after you are attacked.)






    3 - And now here it comes folks, are you ready for this one? Scroll down to see what we are now being told to do if attacked.



































    SCREAM! (Yep, we are now being told to scream like a little girl. Probably followed by wet your pants and suck your thumb after rolling into a fetal position. I personally prefer a much louder sound. One that goes, BANG! Followed by BANG, BANG. Seriously I know what the police were trying to say, they were saying attract attention so someone will hopefully come to your aid. It just struck me as so stupid, funny, and pathetic when they used the word "scream". )

    Those three rules are for the SHEEPLE.

    Here are three rules for us.

    1. Safely carry a concealed firearm.
    2. Be aware of surroundings.
    3. Carry a cellphone for the aftermath.

    How about we scream %#$ , *&*#@, @#@$% you @$@$%

    lound enough to be heard over the BANG BANG BANG.

    This is the almost predictable stuff like ''do not take the law into your own hands'' and ''do as the BG says''

    It is so grossly unrealistic to assume, either that LE can possibly make it in time to other than mop up - and that a BG with a gun is only using it for threat effect!! hell - all too often it is used - bit late then

    I despair of the ''authorities'' when they dish out ''advise'' like this. As for ''scream'' - sheesh!!

    Yep.

    If you don't know any better about protecting yourself, this is the kind of advice you end up with. "Scream". Why? So someone with a gun can come protect you.

    I personally think "half-a$$ed" resistance is what gets people hurt. If you start screaming, the BG is most likely going to try to make you stop screaming and he isn't going to be polite about it.

    Talking

    They said scream not swear....swearing would be offensive to other Sheeple who are busy running away & hiding...just plain scream. No cussing.

    Meanwhile that advice makes me want to scream right now.


    I'm really surprised they did not say: Buy A Loud Whistle.

    The with those on their keyrings make me laugh. The only thing that is going to happen with a whistle is that the BG is going to make you eat it.

    Can I add a # 4 to havegunjoe's great list:


    4. Play Possum / Ostrich: maybe the BG will just go away if you 'play dead' or just bury your head in the sand.
    It's not about the caliber you carry, it's about how you USE it.
