Socio-paths
You may actually know one. Read about the covert type of: 
Borderline-Narcissist. 
These character flawed individuals have co-morbid Borderline Personality Disorder and Narcissist Personality Disorder. 
They are pitiful fragile weak cowards who wear the mask of being the tough one, while playing the part of the professional victim. They accuse, they blame, they project the ugliness within themselves. They lack self control yet seek to control you. Learn about their sad worthless tactics. Become aware of their toxicity, hold them accountable and then overtime....watch calmly from afar and see how they expose themselves to the reality of their trivial empty life. Read about their flying monkeys, manipulated saps posturing in undersized wrinkled suits flailing in the FOG  while the BPD-Narc rages and squirms as a petulant queen. This story is understood by enlightened targets, skilled survivors and of course that pathetic pseudo vic...the "BPD-Narc". Click on the below informational links and share them with others. These sad little leeches fall apart when we gain knowledge and see the truth.

     October: Vehicle Recovery and Driver survival Tips

Prevent a vehicle rollover:

Don't speed upon turns. Wear seatbelts. Secure your dogs. Be aware of wet roads and sharp turns. Check tire tread-wear and pressure. Do not text, drowse, perform 'intimate' acts or argue while driving. Avoid having a cluttered interior, because... during a rollover, loose items become projectiles that can lodge into your body or snap your neck.

During a rollover:

In the event the rollover can not be avoided and you are in the roll...remember that the tires may hit the ground or other solid objects, transferring the force through the steering wheel. You will not be able to hang onto the wheel in this situation. Also, the roof may crush down to the steering wheel. Your hands could become pinned between the wheel and  metal frame. The best approach is to let go of the wheel once you have begun to flip and cross your arms to keep them from flailing out the vehicle. You can pin yourself in place with your legs and get ready to "brace, brace, brace!"

Be aware of your surroundings...tuck your head because broken glass, tree limbs, dirt, rocks, cell phones, coins and other items will be floating around the interior. Pay attention to the direction the vehicle is rolling and whether or not the roof is caving in with each flip. Listen to the cave in and if the roof begins to get too close for comfort,  go into a fetal position to avoid injury.  If you are heading towards a tree, firm structure or ravine....accept it, relax the body and pray.

Once the vehicle has come to a stop... reach for and turn off the ignition to prevent a fire. Check yourself and your passengers for any injuries. Remove or slip off the seat belt. Escape the area, call for help and treat injuries quickly.

A Fire Rescue

"The above fire, is what we faced as we left our home December 10th 2011. Our neighbors Christmas tree went up in flames while they were out for sunday dinner. It was eerily quiet in our neighborhood, but as we walked to our driveway the warmth and the brightness of the flames caught our attention. Once we realized the danger, we went into action. Summer and I jumped through the ravine stumbling along as she managed to call 911. Upon reaching the house I tossed a rock through a window and began yelling 'FIRE...GET OUT'. Through the living room window I could see the tree in flames. I then ran towards the water hose as Summer turned on the water and passed information to the 911 operator at the same time. As I attempted to put the fire out...the water stopped flowing. I dropped the hose and ran around the back looking for another water source. At this point I noticed the guest house behind the main residence. The TV was blasting and I realized that they were oblivious to the flames right outside their door. I grabbed another rock tossed it and yelled 'fire ..get out'. At that very moment an elderly male burst through the door like a 12 year old kid. Summer and I guided him to the street as EMS arrived. Luckily the rest of the family was out, except for the 2 young dogs that were sacrificed by smoke inhalation. Fast action, a plan and team work were essential in saving at least one life. Please watch those candles and Christmas trees this month!"-GySgt Bruce. 

Friend Fight

..." two Fridays ago a female friend called Summer from 4th avenue, drunk, needing help getting a ride home. I went with Summer to pick up her friend up at about 10:30pm. We got there and found her texting as she sat unlady like on the side walk. We then attempted to corral her as she walked into traffic towards our car. We then drove her home...this little drunk 'entitled' friend then started arguing with her boyfriend on the phone. She started yelling at him and threw the phone in the car, Summer picked it up, talked to the boyfriend and then he started to INSULT Summer...I then took the phone and set him straight. But, as typical abusive boyfriends are, cowards, he then attempted to deliver a lame threat to 'cut my throat'! I invited him to do so and told him I would wait for him at his girls house...he never did show. The drunk girl, once at home started yelling for him in the parking lot...Sum tried to quiet her down and then this entitled drunk started hitting Summer! Sum then flipped her mental switch from being a caring friend to a vicious fighter. Sum pounced on her like a beast. The drunk fought back but Summer went hard core and took her down! It was a bad ass site to see! The brawl went on for about 2 minutes as Sum would stop, restrain the drunk, then tried to console her but the drunk would start up again. Eventually this drunk realized she was not going to get her way. The entitlement attitude soon dissipated. The following day, the chick claimed being in 'blackout' and apologized for her boyfriend who was high on cocaine...lame excuses all around." -GySgt Bruce

More Student Stories

The stories below come from our students unfortunate experiences in December. Each story depicts a scenario involving a car. All have attended the Car-Jacking and Roadrage defense CFC seminars held throughout the year.

A.C.-'As I made a legal left turn this white car t-boned me....as the smoke cleared the driver stepped out in an angry fashion...I prepared for a road-rage situation and shifted into a combat mindset....luckily she just stepped out of her car in shock. My mindset then switched to providing emergency care'.

A.P.- 'On my way back home, I noticed this young couple arguing in front of my apartment complex. I slowly drove by with my window open and listened in....I used ODA.... I noticed that the lady had a large rock in her hand. She spat at her boyfriend and threatened to hit him in the head with the stone. I remembered from class that DV situations are the worst to get involved with...so I dialed 911. As she reared her hand to strike her boyfriend I jumped in and tried some of the 3rd party protection tactics...they worked and the cops showed up within 45 seconds!"

B.M.-' I hit a pot hole on golf links during that crazy rain day mid december....the car HYDROPLANED spun 360 hit the curb, but my tactical driving kicked in....luckily the car didnt flip over into the embankment'.

C.O.- ' As the kids were in the back seat of our car in the parking lot of IHOP...this man attempted to open there door...the kids yelled...'Daddy!"...I turned ...looked right at him as I prepared to reach, grab and strike....luckily he was just a confused dad...looking for his own kids in a similar car'.

S.M.-'As I drove last saturday nite on 4th....a fight spilled over into the street in front of my car...the one girl- full of rage headed to our car...I managed to do a tactical turn as the cops barreled in...'.

 November- a crooked cop

 

"A crooked cop came across us last month. To provide some context, we were returning from a birthday party up in Oro Valley and were driving down south on Oracle road at about 2 am saturday morning. I was wearing my typical weekend outfit looking like an ole' retired special ops guy, half beard and all. As we approached Cortero road I noticed this squad car just sitting in the median. As soon as we passed, this cruiser made a U-turn and started to follow us. I told Summer, 'I bet you he is going to stop us for no reason'. She replied 'why, because you're brown and look like an old gangster?'. I chuckled and told her to get the cell phone ready to tape this interaction. He followed us about a mile and before we got out of his jurisdiction he hit the lights. I proceeded to pull over. It turned off the car, turned on the interior dome light and placed my hands on the steering wheel. He approached and without introducing himself or mentioning why he stopped us he proceeded to say 'let me see your license'. I had it ready, gave it to him and waited again to hear the reason for the stop. He stared pensive at my license, leaned into my window and started sniffing. At this point, Im thinking this guy is a newbee with an agenda. I then asked the reason for the stop at which point he stood back and said 'because you were swerving all over the place back there'. I replied 'no I wasn't, youve been following us, why would I do that?' He immediately yelped 'what was that...are you arguing with me?' I then said 'whats your name?'. He backed up again to hide his name and then I said...'Officer T. Brown...I am not arguing with you'... ...'are you arguing with me'?...was his comeback. At that point another cruiser pulls up and then he says 'I will be right back'. It took this guy 6 minutes to run me and after chatting with his buddy returns saying, 'sorry my computer was slow'. I reply...'thanks Brown'. He walks away without saying anything else. This crooked cop was on a mission and I thought I had him on tape. Unfortunately, it was a new phone and Sum didnt know how to use it. Without this evidence, I called the next day, talked to his supervisor Sgt Lopez and discussed the stop with officer T. Brown "mr. uni-brow" as his fellow officers call him. I went as far as consulting with our attorney and drafted an 'incident report' which I then submitted to their internal affairs. Bottom line, if you are innocent and get stopped, prep a recording device as backup, then report these rogue individuals that make it harder on all the true Law Enforcement Officers out there." -Bruce

Be Prepared

Practice, practice, practice.....know your rights and express them, especially when dealing with Public Servants who wear the law enforcement uniform with a government issued badge, and then blatantly use these to intimidate you. 

Be lawful and be vigilant...especially near the following areas:

1. On Broadway between Euclid and park ave near the UA.

2 At Euclid and 9th street near the UA and 4th ave.

3.  On broadway between highland and Campbell near the UA.

4. Congress and aviation parkway near downtown.

5. Oracle road north of ina....Oro valley.

If while driving you are 'chosen' for a traffic stop:

1. safely set up your cell phone to record the stop, or ask a passenger to do so.

2. lock your door and open your window half way. know where your documents are.

3. seek a safe area for the officer and yourself. Signal and slowly pull over.

4.  turn on the interior light and place your hands on the steering wheel

5.Wait to see which type of officer approaches and be polite yet prepared

Good officers generally say: Good evening/afternoon, Im Officer ____. The reason I stopped you was because______. Can I see your license/registration/insurance?

Crooked cops are either overly friendly or curt and aggressive saying: You know why I stopped you? Let me see your license/registration/insurance?  Where are you going/ coming from?  These type, generally want to entrap you and violate your 4th amendment rights by searching your person or manipulating you to enable them to draw your blood without a warrant. The latter is more prevalent near the UA area where these crooked 'public servants' see "mobile money makers drive by, generally by young naïve "sheep".

Insecure bully types without tack  say:  let me see your registration, license and proof of insurance. Where are you from? They on occasion will violate your 6th amendment rights.

Now here is another example of the good Leos that exist out there (like in our classes).... he is a NYC officer.

Street Punks

"I also want to tell you a story.... Last week, I was leaving a restaurant and started to text on my phone when someone grabbed my phone. I pulled it back and looked up. It was two teenage PUNKS who were looking for stuff to take and they thought I would be a good target....Ha...they were wrong!
I then started to walk away but they started to follow me to the Walgreens further down the street. These little punks (it was really just one, because his friend wasn't really looking for trouble) kept talking crap, saying "gimme yo phone" and "I need to make a call" and "I could beat you up, gimme yo phone". Hmm I thought, 'where have I heard that before?"...In Krav Maga training of course!
He then pretended to have a weapon, but I knew he didn't, because I had already sized him up as we were walking. When we finally got to the Walgreens, he grabbed my arm, tried pulling me but I was already inside the Walgreens foyer. I stood my ground, stared directly at him and performed a basic wrist defense...pulling myself free. He let go and then his "friend" pulled him away... saying, "Let's go, we don't want none of that!"
A few days later, I watching the local news and they reported that a spree of robberies were occurring where people were getting their laptops and cell phones taken by "kids who have implied that they had weapons" in my neighborhood. I thought, "Wow, that could've been me." But thanks to you Bruce and all that training in Tucson, I knew I didn't even need to use violence to defuse that situation." -Phil S. DOD Security Intell Analyst 

Road hazard

"During a recent holiday roadtrip to New Mexico, my wife and I stopped at an auto store to replace a burned out headlight. As I pulled out my tool box and my wife held the flashlight, I noticed a shadow approaching us. I immediately remembered what Bruce had taught us relating to protecting those that are not trained. I calmly pulled my wife behind me and guided her to our vehicle telling her to get ready for action. At this time a 6 foot tall 200 pound drunk man approached, asked if I needed help and in my 'ready stance' I replied 'everything is cool man'. He became agitated and I prepped my tactical plan as I remember from Bruce's classes. He staggered forward and I held him at bay. He stood confused yet frustrated at the fact that his stature was not intimidating me. I told him 'back away buddy, things will get ugly if you don't'. He continued to stare me down and finally made his retreat. My wife later told me she felt so sacred initially but then saw my stance and remembered that I had been training with Bruce at CrossFit Works. She and I are very grateful for Bruce's Israeli Krav Maga courses."- Rene M. IT Supervisor

Only Thirty

 "It was thursday night and I was walking on 4th avenue at about midnite. I just finished eating a pizza at Magpies on 4th when across the street I saw this girl and guy pushing on a taller guy. He seemed as if he was drunk and not coherent. They were laughing and picking on him. All of the sudden one of the bullies friends who was sitting near by, ran over and grabbed a construction barricade then headed over to the drunk guy. I then realized what he was going to do and sprinted to help the drunk guy. I startled all of them as I stood between them and the drunk guy. I stood in the ready stance and in a cool calm yet assertive voice told them, 'just chill out...stay right there'. All of the sudden, the friend of the bully swung the barricade towards my head. I did a overhand block, grabbed it and pulled it out of his control. He fell and the bully then tried to tackle me down but I instinctly did the 'matador' move I learned in class. I shoved him to the ground and slowly backed away telling him, 'stay down'. He actually did! I moved to the drunk guy and asked if he was ok. He said, 'what the F@#k...yeah man thanks.' The bullies slowly backed off. It was amazing how it all went down in 30 seconds, just like Bruce says in class. All the training drills from Krav Maga just kicked in. It was so cool!"

Burger-Strike

"I was walking home very late on friday night from a real cool college party when I saw, what I thought was my friends car drive up beside me. I had decided to leave the party early to get some late night burgers from the Jack in the Box on the corner of speedway and park, so I thought it was my friends coming by to join me in the car...but I was wrong. As I unknowingly approached to see if it was them, the passenger asked me for directions to 4th avenue. At this point I was very close to the car when I realized it wasnt my friends. I stayed cool and began to give this 'stranger' directions. As I began to point, the passengers eyes and brow slightly changed. I remembered that Bruce said once in class to look out for those PINs...the eyes, the nostrils and teeth clenching prior to an attack. At the moment I noticed this PIN the guy threw a punch at my face, I immediately did an inside parry to block it and delivered the fastest strongest strike to his throat! He cowered back into the car, I did a double hand push off the car door and ran as fast as I could. I then heard the driver get out of his car and try to follow me...I was running so fast all I could hear was the first guy gasping for air and the driver yell...'what the F@#k did he do to you?'. I didnt get my burger that night. But I did get the satisfaction of knowing that my CQC training has paid off!!" -Don V

                                                                  December: Survival Note

The below recounts an incident that involved our Chief Instructor....this encounter exemplifies the importance of a warrior mindset, tactical offensive knife fighting skills and first aid abilities under stress.  
 
"At approximately 18:15 Friday night after an early dinner with Summer at King Fisher grill we decided to drive south through a quaint neighborhood on our way home. As we calmly drove talking about certain houses... I noticed an elderly male on the ground screaming at a young white woman who stood over him....struggling to hold her large pit-bull. The dog was snarling at the man dripping blood from its teeth.
 
We immediately attempted to use our truck as a barrier to protect him....parked at an angle...I jumped out, pulling my knife ready to kill the pit-bull. Summer ran towards the old man as she dialed 911. I approached the woman and her dog in Kill mode. She had the tears in her eyes screaming not to do it...sorry this  happened to his puppy.....I then realized the old man held his small Chihuahua in his arms, as it bled from a large dog bite to its abdomen. I retreated my weapon and went to aid the elder. The woman pulled her dog away. The pup was still breathing...we provided a shirt from our car to keep it warm. We could not put pressure on its wounds since it was apparent that the vice grip of the pit-bull had crushed the poor animal.
 
The old man was in shock...the woman was freaking....Summer and I dealt with both parties as they continued to scream. He started to clench his chest....heart attack about to happen....well yes, so we lifted him via a buddy crutch and lead him to an awaiting car that took him and the pup to emergency care. TPD showed up as we held the woman there for their investigation. She didn't flee due to many factors. We departed....."  Bruce
Dog Attack-Survival Strategies
Prevention
Awareness:
Neighborhood- Prior to taking your dog/s on a walk, know the route, the neighbors, their dogs, the security of their fences/yards/gates for the potential of escaping aggressive dogs.
Safety- As you walk you should always scan for barriers, obstacles, improvised shields that can be used in case a dog attacks. Also, besides carrying the traditional poop bag and flashlight, consider carrying an edged weapon, spray or short unbreakable strong stick.
Walkers- As you approach another, observe how the owner leases his dog, how they control their dog on that leash, also note if its a retractable or harness type of leash.
Dogs- As you approach, assess the dogs temper. The height of the tail and ears are indicators of aggression. Its not the type of dog (not all pit-bulls or boxers are evil killers) its the demeanor and the energy of the owner that dictates how a dog will act. If the dog stares at your dog with ears back and tail stationary and high, tugging at the owners leash...watch out for potential trouble.
Boundary:
If the dog shows aggression, immediately change your direction of movement into an area that can provided cover until the owner and dog walk by. A tree, large car, a patch of cacti all serve as potential obstacles.
Create distance:
Even a small aggressive dog can pull off a collar and sprint to attack. Get that distance and use the obstacle casually.
Reaction
Awareness:
If you are surprised and cant take cover. Seek an improvised shield, your backpack or a nearby object that can be used. If you have time, lift your dog and place him on or in something high, like a nearby car, a trash can or tree.
Boundary:
If you have time use that same car, tree or trash can to fend off the dog. If you have a weapon deploy it.
Communicate:
Tell the owner to control the dog...repeatedly... in a strong commanding voice. If there is no owner command the dog.. loudly.. to call attention to others.
Combat:
If the dog attempts to bite, feed it an object so its focus is diverted, As a last resort if your dog was not picked up....place your leg in the way of the attack. It will be painful, but once it latches on to your leg hammer-strike the crap out their eyes or try kicking at their elbow joint....to snap it. Try to maintain your balance, do not fall. If you fall, shield your neck with one arm. If you were able to deploy a weapon (knife-cut around its neck, firearm-shoot at abdomen, spray-at eyes, stick-hit across eyes and nose). If no weapon, gouge eyes, rip trachea or split legs!
Create Distance and Care:
Injured or not, crawl, hop or run to cover. Perform immediate first aid...compress your wounds. If your dog was bitten...probability is you will not be able to put pressure on the wounds due to the crushing effect on its torso or neck. Call 911, they will send ems to you and direct you to animal control. Animal control will provide the address to the nearest Emergency Vet clinic. Stabilize and go. Get witnesses phone numbers only if the wounds are not grave. Just go!

January awareness

Practice, practice, practice.....know your rights and express them, especially when dealing with Public Servants who wear the law enforcement uniform with a government issued badge, and then blatantly use these to intimidate you. To learn how to deal with rouge agents, click here. 

Its unfortunate that during these upcoming months... local government officials advocate for tactics that increase revenue for their coffers. Increase your awareness of  the number of motorcycle cops and hidden squad cars waiting for the slightest traffic infringement out there. Especially near Downtown, the UA, 4th ave and Oro valley.

Most of you have heard of Madrihks 2010 incident with Officer T. Brown and how Madrihk held him accountable with his department after the non PC-RS traffic stop. While the number of "Psuedo Tough" yet truly Insecure individuals hiding behind a badge like Brown exist... the numbers are limited. We must be vigilant though to how his type...Have an Agenda, Stereotype, Intimidate and Entrap the innocent, just for a power trip and for the overtime in court appearances. Good officers will Interview, Observe and then intellectually Profile. Understandably every officer faces potential threats to their life on a daily basis as they engage with the general public and unknown subjects. Yet good officers, treat everyone with respect and act according to each encounter. Below are some protocols to consider when encountering Public Servants that wear a badge from agencies like DPS to CBP to TPD....specifically during traffic stops.

Be lawful and be vigilant...especially near the following areas:

1. On Broadway between Euclid and park ave near the UA.

2  At Euclid and 9th street near the UA and 4th ave.

3.  On broadway between highland and Campbell near the UA.

4. Congress and aviation parkway near downtown.

5. Oracle road north of ina....Oro valley.

If while driving you are 'chosen' for a traffic stop:

1. safely set up your cell phone to record the stop, or ask a passenger to do so.

2. lock your door and open your window half way. know where your documents are.

3. seek a safe area for the officer and yourself. Signal and slowly pull over.

4.  turn on the interior light and place your hands on the steering wheel

5.  Wait to see which type of officer approaches and be polite yet prepared

Good officers generally say: Good evening/afternoon, Im Officer ____. The reason I stopped you was because______. Can I see your license/registration/insurance?

Crooked cops are either overly friendly or curt and aggressive saying: You know why I stopped you? Let me see your license/registration/insurance?  Where are you going/ coming from?  These type, generally want to entrap you and violate your 4th amendment rights by searching your person or manipulating you to enable them to draw your blood without a warrant. The latter is more prevalent near the UA area where these crooked 'public servants' see "mobile money makers" drive by, generally by young naïve "sheep".
