Raleigh Constituent’s latest update from the campus of North Carolina State University.
The Wolfpack Concealed Carry Movement is alive and well…..
For many years when various vendors and miscellaneous miscreants arrive at the front stoop of Casa JohnJacobH it has been our policy to greet them from an upstairs window that overlooks the entryway.
ALL visitors ALL the time.
Our friends understand and all others are unable to move beyond the most basic meet-and-greet.
Most of the time all is well. A few times have been slightly spooky.
But this video demonstrates how quickly things can go bad- in less than a minute.
This girl should have slammed the door the minute her assailant assumed a ready strike position. She who hesitates gets her clock cleaned.
As Sgt Esterhaus famously said: “Let’s be careful out there!”
The way NC Gun Guy tells it, you are more likely to get maimed or injured by rampaging wheelchairs on the sidewalk than by the average garden variety mugger or thug! We report, you decide…..
In just a few short years Raleigh NC has been invaded by a population of nitwits on bicycles, skateboards, motorized wheelchairs and even roller skates!
With total disregard for law, safety or ordinary common sense these knuckleheads ply the roads and sidewalks of the city and leave a trail of chaos in their wake wherever they go.
Today’s video highlights an important distinction between actual military combat veterans (in opposite corners of the country) and the armed thugs who populate the United States law enforcement culture – the ability to carry out a necessary assignment with honor and dignity.
Most American citizens have never met the two most important people who have an inordinate unwholesome influence over the course of their daily life – the Police Academy Trainer and the University Law Professor.
For better or worse, the Academy Trainer and the Law Professor almost single-handedly determine the actual street level application of law.
So, for example, in the case of Law Enforcement, We, the Trampled, are burdened with the unfathomable concept of “officer safety” which cheerfully countenances the summary execution of family pets and sucker punched pedestrians on the slimmest pretext in the course of an ordinary encounter all because 9 out of 10 Police Academy trainers agree it is “a good idea”!
Or, in the case of the accredited Attorney-at-law, entire philosophical constructs of principle and theory are completely ignored by the Law School establishment in favor of ‘stare decisis’ and case law!
Which brings us to today’s video of a California Sheriff cold cocking a citizen without shame in full public view and the soldier who immediately spotted the violation of protocol embodied therein.
Unlike the modern patrol officer modern combat soldiers enter truly hostile and dangerous environments with a lawyer on each shoulder who eagerly await any opportunity to condemn them for any misstep -intentional or accidental. They accept the hazard as part of the assigned duty and perform fearlessly.
Compare that mentality to the “officer safety culture” which escalates the smallest encounter into a life threatening situation.
Thank you soldier for your service to our country both on active duty and off.
Coincidentally William Norman Grigg discusses virtually the same topic in his current column on the excellent Pro Libertate blog:
Anne Dekins was a loud-mouthed party girl — or at least, that’s what the arrest warrant suggested. Whatever she may have done in the past, Miss Dekins was quietly minding her own business when Officer Samuel Bray found her on the street and began to haul her away.
Dekins wasn’t inclined to go quietly, and she put up a struggle. Her cries for help attracted the interest of several armed men led by an individual named Tooley, who confronted Bray and demanded to know what he was doing to the frantic woman. The officer produced his official credentials and insisted that he was making a lawful arrest for “disorderly conduct.” When witnesses disputed that description, Bray called for backup.
Tooley and his associates ordered Bray to release the woman, and then took action to enforce that lawful order. After Bray’s partner was killed in the ensuing struggle, Tooley and his associates were arrested for murder. The trial court threw out the murder charge, ruling that the warrant was defective. Since the arrest was illegal, the court pointed out, Dekins had a right to resist – and bystanders likewise had a right, if not a positive duty, to assist her. The defendants were eventually found guilty of manslaughter, but quickly pardoned and set free.
By trying to enforce an invalid warrant, Bray “did not act as a constable, but a common oppressor,” observed the trial court. Tooley and the other bystanders were properly “provoked” by the act of aggressive violence against Anne Dekins, and their forceful but measured response – first demanding that the abductor release the hostage, then exercising defensive force to free her – was entirely appropriate.
Lawless violence against the helpless “is a sufficient provocation to all people out of compassion” in any circumstance, observed the court, “much more where it is done under a colour of justice, and where the liberty of the subject is invaded….” In fact, an act of that kind carried out by a law enforcement official is nothing less than “a provocation to all the subjects of England.”
School Teachers with guns! From a story by the venerable Ruth Woodman
Boy, one for the When I Was A Kid file for sure! Mayberry on steroids before there was a Mayberry! Travel now down the road to yesteryear and learn how things were in the good ole days! A tale of shootin’ and teachin’ and small town life. Oh yeah, did I mention there was prayer in school????
Here at John Jacob H RKBA Commentary there is alot of traffic through the Rufus Hussey Beanshooter posts.
So naturally when we learned of the Slingshot Cannon we had to take a look!

Hoo Boy! I am sure this is just a typo from our devout Muslim Neighbors.
I am glad to see these people exercise the freedom of Speech guaranteed by our Constitution.
Since I am a self-described Provincial you can imagine my surprise the messages are in English and sound suspiciously like Democrat Talking Points.
Obviously a black flag operation perpetrated by evil Republicans on an innocent and unsuspecting Muslim Community!!
At least one contributor has labeled the original author as a MODERATOR on that board!
Snag a copy while you can!!
