1. The ‘suspect was high on drugs’ mantra may be true, though it is likely a standard propaganda based answer. Here’s why, this is a broad daylight, open attack on a LEO, and while this is Philly, that cannot be a normal thing. It is, by all intents and purposes, an open escalation in the level of violence against the local law. And, while this dude was likely stoned, I doubt his altered state of mind drove him to sustain 4 rounds without much initial effect. Everything must remain normal. Everyone, especially the supporters out in the ‘burbs who actually fund the FSA, have to be placated at all costs. Go to work. Do your commutes. The LEO’s are your friends. All is well. Be well to each other.
2. For the locals to not call 911, or assist in any way is indicative of any inner city in America. Again, maintain normality. All is well. I would venture to guess that out here in the ‘burbs, that response would be different. The other side of the FSA out here still thinks that the state and it’s agents are your friends.
Keep these in mind. Observe and report.
Alternate question & scenario:
How would you, as a III, be able to incorporate this into your OODA loop?
Rich, thanks for putting this out there. Good stuff.
Guys, I’m here to tell you. I went from zero to 80% autonomous with about $600 and five working days. Figure out how to get that production cost down to even half of that and you have just out OODA’d dotgov by millions of dollars.
I hear many voices among the cacaphony of Occupy. What I do not hear are the voices of those who put liberty above all else. That is a shame, because, were I a betting’ man, I would wager that something is gonna come of this. Maybe good, maybe bad.
I wish more people on the “FreeFor” side would really and seriously read Mein Kampf. Scary and unrealistic/realistic Hitler analogies and demonizations aside, one can learn a lot about politics and group dynamics in a democracy from his book, life, and methods. Hate him if you like, but he was a political genius.
Same with Che, Machiavelli, and Alinsky, to name a few more.
Not a lot of literature from the FreeFor (Team Freedom) perspective on resistance (short of war). So, we take what we can get.
Stop whining about your lack of Constitutional rights and do something. Waiting on the end of the bloody world is only going to get you killed.
I have read Mein Kampf. AP is right about the political ability of history’s biggest villain. Knowledge is indeed power – even woefully politically incorrect knowledge. While you’re at it, get of copy of The Prince and read some of Mao’s stuff. Believe it or not, you will not, all of a sudden like, turn to the darkside for ingesting this stuff.
For all that is holy and sacred, reading this stuff is reading your enemy’s playbook! Take advantage of the fact that it’s out there and get inside their decision cycle!
