http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/07/0...m-shooting-at-san-francisco-tourist-hot-spot/ I got this list sometime ago and when a saw this story, it made me think of it. I wrote this list down when I first started in Law Enforcement as the tidbits of wisdom working with guys that had seen almost everything in their daily work around bad folks; some of them truly rotten to the core. It helped keep me grounded and safe because it helped to make sense of some things after they happened and help explain situations that "normal" people would be baffled by. Bad things can and do happen to good people Do not attempt to apply your own morality to criminals. They don’t think like you do. There are evil people in the world who do not care if you have a family or friends that count on you. They will show you no mercy and you should not expect any. To the criminal, you are a target. The criminal mind seeks to take advantage of the weak. Projecting an image of helplessness or submission only encourages criminals to take advantage of you. Prepare yourself right now for the fact that you will at some point in your life you will be involved in a physical altercation with an adversary who desperately wants to win at all costs and will do anything to you in order to achieve that end. If you have to fight, bring the fight hard and fast. The only unfair fight is the one you lose. Be Polite, Be Professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet. Right now, someone, somewhere is training to beat you. Promise yourself right now, that no matter what happens, that you will survive. It makes me angry that no one was there to immediately shoot the BG in the face.
