Armed Citizen Lessons Learned: The Ryan Whitaker Shooting

Phoenix Pay $3 Million to Settle Whitaker Police Shooting Lawsuit

First off let me say This was a 100% preventable TRAGEDY and in my humble opinion $3 Million Dollars for the life of an innocent white man with no criminal record is UTTERLY DISGRACEFUL. Along with this the fact that none of the Officers involved were FIRED is telling of the systemic system of deficient training and discipline at work in most law enforcement agencies across the nation.

Having said that, we are living in dangerous, edgy times when the Armed Citizen cannot TRUST anybody and that includes Law Enforcement. I say this not because I am anti-law enforcement across the board but because from a practical personal safety standpoint, Law Enforcement training nationwide has proven to be way too deficient and inconsistent to take any chances.

So What can  the Armed Citizen take away from this?

  • Don’t Plan on Calling 911. No seriously, Just don’t plan on doing it. Why? Because you are INVITING Law Enforcement into a situation that has a very high probability of going badly. As I have said many times on this blog when it comes to your personal safety and the safety of your Home and Family, YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN. DO NOT PLAN ON ANYBODY COMING TO HELP OR SAVE YOU.

  • Before you open your door, know who is on the other side not just via a peephole but with a strong verbal challenge. “WHO IS IT!?”

  • Never Open any Door Holding a Weapon with Police on the Other Side. Regardless if you are on your own property or not. It is obvious Police training and Mentality in this area is highly deficient so just NEVER DO IT!

Are You Prepared to be an Outlaw?

From the Archives, 2018

Oregon’s New Red Flag Law: State Confiscates Nearly 50 Gun Owners’ Guns

 

Note that a majority of the guns “confiscated” in the above picture (ie, illegally taken from peoples homes) are bolt action hunting rifles?

Just goes to show that when they come for your guns, they are not just coming for the “evil black rifles”, they are coming for all of them.

We are fast approaching a day when being “Law Abiding” is no longer an option for the true Patriot, why? Because the “Laws” (at least when it comes to Firearm Ownership) are Unconstitutional, Immoral and Dangerous!

There is historical precedent for this line of thinking going back 250+ years:

“If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so.” -Thomas Jefferson

“One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Also remember that when unjust people populate the corridors of power, the “Law” is just another weapon for them to execute their immoral will.

Laws to Corrupt Politicians and Leaders are just another tool of tyranny.

So again I ask you: Are you prepared to be an “Outlaw?”

Pandemic Drones?

Connecticut police to test ‘pandemic drone’ that monitors health of residents

I have never been much of a conspiracy Nut, but it has become obvious that Government (both Local, State and Federal) are taking FULL advantage of the Corona pandemic (and the FEAR that goes with it) to “up the ante” on civilian surveillance around the globe.

They did the same thing after 9/11 with the Patriot Act, remember?

Understand, the key ingredient in both of these scenarios is FEAR.

When People are scared and uncertain they are more likely to trade their RIGHTS and their FREEDOMS for so-called “Security Measures.”

You gotta ask yourself what’s next?

Implanted ID Chips so you can be located and monitored 24/7?

Yeah, it’s already under way.

Court upholds Right of Armed Citizen to Shoot a Police Officer in Defense

Court upholds Right of Armed Citizen to Shoot a Police Officer in Defense

This man spent Five Years of his life in Jail for acting in Reasonable Self-Defense against a cop who did not follow the rules.

This part bears repeating:

The agents of the government are not supposed to be our masters. They are supposed to be our servants.

When agents of the government act as criminals, they should not be surprised when citizens treat them as criminals. When they disregard due process, they should lose immunity for their actions.

The case shows why the Stand Your Ground law was needed. Warrants are not only to protect the accused. Properly used, they also protect police.  If the officer had a warrant, had knocked on the door and presented it, it is highly likely he would not have been shot.

Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous!

Laying the Groundwork for the Next Civil War

A Stout Read. Take some Antacids before hand.

The ending quote says it all:

You either believe in freedom or you don’t. It’s that simple.

Everything else is just a deadly distraction. As Orwell observed in 1984:

“All that was required of them was a primitive patriotism which could be appealed to whenever it was necessary to make them accept longer working hours or shorter rations. And even when they became discontented, as they sometimes did, their discontent led nowhere, because, being without general ideas, they could only focus it on petty specific grievances. The larger evils invariably escaped their notice.”
