To show you how serious an issue this is, I am over 400 miles from the Mexican border in Texas and in the nearest town to my residence I am already seeing Somali’s and “other” Africans walking the streets. Two days ago at a gas station two thuggish looking Somali’s in badly broken English tried to solicit a cigarette and ride from my better half to which she told them loudly and firmly (drawing the attention of two other patrons at the pumps) “I Cannot Help You Please Leave Me Alone” while having her hand on the grip of Her G26 in her purse. They mumbled under their breath and walked away. After she told me the story that evening, I was beeming like a proud papa!! She had done exactly as we had trained. I was Very Proud of her!
This immigration “Issue” has stopped being some ambiguous news story we read about every week folks. It has hit the streets where WE LIVE in full force and has become a legitimate security issue for the Civilian Operator.
I urge all of you to review and practice what I call your “Stranger” speech now. Most all of you have had some experience with this I am sure, but the main points I always drill on is to be LOUD and FIRM. You don’t have to be rude, but then again don’t be a push over either. NEVER apologize for not being able to help them! Speak LOUD enough to attract attention also. Predators don’t like attention.
Confrontations on the street with vagrants, immigrants and/or thugs are becoming a frequent event for a lot of armed civilians across the country right now. Just recently, John Farnam posted a story and a Follow-Up from one of his students about a similar encounter at a Drive-thru window. It is a great review on both the verbal skills necessary when dealing with a possible threat and dealing with a threat while inside a vehicle.
More to Come on this.
