"don't be a victim" book review and one other

BOOK REVIEW

“Don’t Be A Victim! An Officer’s Advice On Preventing Crime”

By John Elliott

When Prepper Press ( one of the best indie genre book publishers out there, making Paladin Press look even more like the rabid monkey molesters that they are, where the handful of exceptions prove the rule that they only publish extremely overpriced crap ) offered me this book, I hesitated slightly. I normally would accept any free book, but I got so wary of aforementioned Paladin Press books ( not that I read anymore of their books, just that almost every other publisher now seems to be following their business model ) that I paused a whole fifteen seconds before agreeing. In the end, my greed forced me to chance yet another book I wouldn’t like. Luckily for me, this book isn’t like most of the other police officer written drivel out there about burglar alarms and getting an escort to your car ( although, those of course were added ), but more in line with the higher caliber of offerings Prepper carries. I’m not saying it was perfect, or for everyone, just that if you go in for this sort of thing, it seems better than most and should prove worth your investment.

I see little need for such books for myself. I’m in the country in a crappy trailer, outside a relatively small town. I don’t drive a car. My credit rating has thankfully been nuked after two bankruptcies ( yes, I finally got it right after the second time and no longer get into debt at all. Well, I did for my land, but E-Bay real estate never requires any credit check and that is an investment-no more rent ever-rather than consumer credit spending ). I don’t travel out of the protection of the Great Basin region ( Las Vegas is NOT in the geographical area but in the Mohave ). But even so, I learned quite a few helpful tips from it. For instance, if your windshield gets egged, don’t turn on the water or the wipers and don’t stop. The cleaner fluid and wipers just make it harder to see out, and when you stop “to confront the young punks”, most likely it is a carjacking set-up. You might think a lot of this advice is irrelevant, but I saw most sections as being pertinent to everyone. The scams mostly against Seniors can apply to everyone. If you are silly enough to live in a city, you need most of the advice here. Even the foreign tourism to America advice can prepare you for the scams and habits of criminals visitors to Disney and such should know about. There is a section of scams by your auto mechanic- something most of you fools owning a car should beware of. I was actually quite surprised by the number of crime/scam observations there was to be aware of I had no idea about ( being careful to always stay away from areas with a nuclear missile or Fed False Flag target painted on them, I’ve been sheltered to the point biting dogs seem to be my biggest threat ).

*

Again, the book isn’t perfect. The author gives “standard, professional” advice I scoff at. For instance, bedwetting is listed as a symptom of child molestation. Hmmm…I guess that means, what, 99% of kids were molested? And the standard observation that LSD ( just after one use!!!! Reefer Madness!!! ) use can lead to flashbacks is so humping stupid I want to groin kick any idiot muttering it ( as an aside, one time under pressure from The Handmaiden Of Lucifer, I went to interview for a job I had no interest in, corrections officer. So, naturally, to queer the hiring process I admitted to using Acid wayyyy back in the day. Asking why this disqualified me after the official statement said that drug use was NOT a disqualifier but lying about it was, I was told about “severe flashbacks, etc.” ). I took LSD habitually in the service ( first hallucination a giant upwards spiraling snake as I listened to The Doors “The End”- it was cool as crap and normally I have a huge fear of snakes ) as did many of my squad mates who I keep in contact with. No flashbacks. Regret we can’t take the stuff anymore, perhaps, but no flashbacks. Perhaps a few of the old CIA victims who took pure LSD in connection with other brainwashing techniques had blowback, but I’m unaware of recreational users ever experiencing this.

*

However, this book does offer up to date advice of how criminals operate and how to even up the odds against them, especially with fraud. I would recommend it if you are middle class and living in the city. If you are more concerned with violent crimes than fraud, I’d skip this book and move to the country in a open carry state. Baring that, the advice here is sound. Recommended.

HIMMLER’S BOOTS

There was a few e-mails a week or two ago on a gentleman down Texas way who was soliciting donations to help with legal expenses.  He had been walking his son on hiking trails and had a rifle he was legally carrying.  When a cop confronted him, he got lippy and that was when all the fun started.  Now, I don’t mean to sound like the defense attorney who dismissed the claims of a rape victim by blaming her for “dressing provocatively”, but anymore this is what things have come down to.  If you answer the above LEO’s question with “none of your business why I’m armed, I’m carrying legally”, he is going to jack you up.  It ain’t right, it ain’t legal, but if you fail to kiss the ass of a cop or a judge, if you don’t lick the jack boots that look over you, you will be punished.  Now, I could make excuses for cops.  You know, they are under extreme stress, knowing it ain’t a question of if but of when they are attacked and are “on guard” all the time.  If a normal law abiding citizen comes off as antagonistic, asserting his Constitutional rights, the cop is NOT going to differentiate this from your typical crack head belligerence ( and, no, not all cops are this bad.  In general, the higher the population density, the more extreme they are ).  I’m simply amazed that most people are still living in such a time warp that they think they can protest the Vietnam War like a bunch of dirty hippies.

Anymore, your vote does not count.  Not because you are one amongst thousands that still believes in a Constitutional Republic ( outlawed since 1861 ), but because the vote has been electronically manipulated for several elections now.  There is no way that the central bankers are going to cede control, so you can bet the ranch that there will NEVER be a president who will contest their rule ( and, since the bankers ain’t stupid and include the government and the corporations in on the graft, ALL the powers that be support the system ) until after a collapse.  And you have ZERO Constitutional protections anymore.  Don’t go whining to your Congressman about anything because they don’t give a crap.  They will do what they are told to do, and since your vote isn’t counted they don’t care what you want.  So, since you can and will be “disappeared” as they see fit, doesn’t it make sense to not antagonize the boots on the ground who might take notice of you?  A cop sees you with an attitude, justified or not, he immediately says to himself, “danger”, and he will dominate the situation to avert danger to himself.  If you start licking his boots, he says to himself, “I’m still in control and there is no danger to myself”.  Stop thinking you have rights, because the only right anymore is “might makes right”.  And right now, the cops have the might.  If your fellow gun owner is starving, yes, he will rebel and overwhelm the authorities.  But he will NEVER rebel just over what guns or magazines he is allowed to keep.  Don’t bet your life on any help if you are silly enough to think of fighting the system.

*

Unless you are asleep anymore, you might have noticed that the “justice” system has been broken for some time.  You go in there demanding rights, you WILL get slapped down hard.  You think a maximum fine ( when a minimum would have been given ) was worth it to “tell off the judge”?  You need to check that macho attitude, because anymore almost any crime outside of littering can carry jail time.  Really, you want to be behind bars if we suddenly go grid down?  Instead of thinking like a rabid attack dog, who thinks offense is the only answer, look at a cat who retreats or attacks, as the situation warrants.  Sometimes, you need to play the weakling to escape.  Being a man means you are also the provider, and you can’t do that caught up in the system.  Sometimes you can’t be macho if you are the provider, like when you need to kiss the boss’ ass.  It ain’t fun, but we all need to do it to survive.  Think of cops as just another boss you must appease.  Reality sucks, yes?

  3. Jim, it annoys to no end having to kiss ass like this and yet I begrudgingly acknowledge you are right. Having once been threatened with the popular disorderly conduct I instantly backed off (which made me angrier). Since in most encounters you will have been already IDed you have little choice but to back down. Even if you did away with the problem facing you somebody else would be along shortly. Don't get mad, get even.
