0300 - Safety as a Concept In Training and in Life

/
Recently I stopped to look at the rules that were posted in our local YMCA swimming pool. There were a total of 14 rules listed one of which was, "No breath holding contests." It was really frustrating to read the rules that were trying to address very specific situations that were considered a danger and missing the big picture. There was no mention of "Swim within your ability," or any other rule that addressed safety as a concept. When we have rules like, "No breath holding contests," I always look for the rules that say, "Do not park your vehicles in the swimming pool," and "No chainsaws allowed in the hot tub." We can never address EVERY safety concern with a rule and we need to stop trying. When we attempt to cover it all specifically we will miss something, we will smother those we are trying to protect with minutia and we short circuit out goal of creating a safer environment.

0299 - Getting Children Into Car Seats Safely

/
I don't prescribe to the idea of safety based on good neighborhoods and bad neighborhoods, but we can look at some patterns and do our best to choose where we spend our time. Where we live, work and go to school all tend to be what they are we mustn't forget that we control our own destiny and if we don't like our surroundings it is within our power to effect change in our lives. There are decisions that are even more under our control such as where we shop and where we spend our recreational time that we have even more control over.

0247 - Dealing with Christmas Scum

/
Whenever we look at crime and violence we need to try to break down the crime so that we can understand it and the dirt that perpetrates that crime. A smash and grab is a simple, fast and relatively effective mode of crime. Entry is typically gained by smashing a glass door or window. Then climbing through the entry point or using that point to manipulate the lock. After entry the shit bags proceed to high probability areas of the home to grab loot and leave. Yup, shit bags.

0245 - The Christmas Spirit

/
Lets not forget that because it is Christmas we owe it to our husbands and wives, sons and daughters, mothers and fathers to be there to enjoy Christmas this year and for many more to come. Embrace the Christmas Spirit, but never forget that your innocent life has much more value than the life of scum no matter what time of year it is, and not just to your family, but to society as a whole. When someone has earned it, there is nothing wrong with giving the gift of multiple palm strikes to the face or shots to the torso. Get in the spirit and be generous!

0241 - The Throw Away Wallet

/
I try to make sure that all of my EDC items are EUI, as in Every Day Use. My TAW or throw away wallet is no exception. It is the wallet I use most often, and in a pinch it may serve as as way to avoid crime, keep it from escalating, or create the opportunity for you to turn the tables and dominate. If you don't have one, get yourself a throw away wallet.

0143 - Be a Hard Target

/
If you spend any time watching National Geographic type television, you undoubtedly see the classic scene where the predator gobbles up the unsuspecting prey. It truly is natural selection at work, and all predators are experts at spotting the easy targets.

0128 - LE What Can Women Learn From This

/
I really appreciate the input that I get from my listeners. If you haven't found Sports Stole My Man you should check it out. Jen Posted up on my FB wall a link to this article Lululemon Robbery/Murder with the question: "What can women learn from this?" Great question, but I'm not surprised that's what good journalists do is ask good questions.
