    Compliance Can be a Strategy in a Robbery But Isn't Foolproof | Active Self Protection

    Published on Oct 4, 2017
    Many times I hear from people to just comply in an armed robbery because it’s safer. Sometimes, it is safer, but it isn’t a foolproof strategy. Instead, watch what happens in real robbery in four different places. The evidence shows that compliance can be a strategy in a robbery but it isn’t foolproof!

    How to spot a liar: Experts reveal most of us need to stop assuming everyone is telling the truth
    • Research shows that when it comes to spotting a liar, most people are inaccurate
    • Most people tend to believe others are telling the truth more often than they are
    • This 'truth bias,' may be because most people tell the truth most of the time
    • So if there is no evidence otherwise, it makes sense for people to guess that someone is telling the truth because that's more likely

    Lessons Learned From My First SHOCK KNIFE Experience: It Sucked!
    Funker Tactical - Fight Training Videos



    Published on Oct 14, 2017
    DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME. A shock knife delivers electric shock along the edge of the blade. The sound is terrifying. I had never done this before. This was my first time. First, let me say that the true purpose was NOT to defend against it. There were multiple opportunities for me to disengage or deliver strikes...defending it wasn't the point. The point was to get over my fear and to FEEL the shock knife. Listen carefully to what my takeaways were and remember that I am a relatively untrained person...seek to elevate your training.

    Please pardon the video quality...this was from a Facebook Live Feed.

    Use OC Spray and Get Jail Time
    Castle Tutelage



    Published on Oct 15, 2017
    If you deploy Pepper Spray or Stun Gun in an unreasonable manner you may go to jail. If your attacker is using Spray or Stun gun in an offensive way with the intent to harm you, deadly force would be reasonable.

    Clerk Has Tools But No Attitude Against Robber | Active Self Protection
    Active Self Protection



    Published on Oct 16, 2017
    This clerk had at least two opportunities to take it to this robber, one with a significant blunt object in his hand, but chose not to. He had a plan (use the tools), not sure if he had the skills (pretty easy to thump someone with a wrench), but he primarily did not have the attitude against this robber to stop him. So compliance was his best option and it worked out!

    What if you hate someone in jail and i want him to get more than a Wig Split. Is it possible to place a hit on that person no matter what the cost?

    Can someone from the outside place a hit on me so guards and prisoners complete a hit on me and get away with it?

    Did you see someone pay the guards or prisoners to make someone's life hell?
