Basic self-defense: If a chaser does catch up to you, basic self-defense is key. Chances are you're not fighting a ninja and as we've noted before one of the most important facets to staying alive in an assault is knowing where to hit. Go for the head, ears, groin, or knees when you can. Most importantly, don't stick around when you knock them down. Get out as soon as possible.

Watch What You Say or do in the American Police State
An article in the Baltimore Sun reports that the Maryland Transit Administration has installed microphones on some city busses to record the conversations of passengers. They previously had video cameras, but added audio recording capability to the cameras on at least ten busses so far, with installation expected on hundreds more by summer. This measure is meant for security. It is hoped that the recordings will be useful in identifying trouble makers and for reconstructing crimes or mishaps after the fact.
There are signs on the busses that have the recording devices, notifying passengers that there conversations are being monitored and recorded. It is not clear yet if most riders are aware of the devices, though. Privacy advocates point out that even if most passengers are initially made aware of the recorders, it is natural to forget about them after a while, and to then talk freely with a friend or other passenger, or on a cell phone. It also isn't clear just how many people will have access to the recordings and for how long they will be kept.
5-Year Old Girl Labeled ‘Terrorist’ in American Police State
Fortunately for the citizens of Northumberland County, local authorities managed to detain this nefarious kindergartener before she could exact her villainous deeds on thousands of innocents.
Authorities were tipped off after someone overheard a conversation between the girl and one of her classmates in which she mentioned plans to shoot people… with a bubble gun.
Administrators at her local elementary school questioned the girl alone without her parents for 30 minutes. She was then labeled a ‘terrorist threat’ and sentenced to a ten-day suspension.
Now, it’s quite fortunate for the child that she was granted a reprieve, albeit a small one, from state sponsored brainwashing. Public schools stamp out children’s creativity and independence, replacing them with obedience training and state propaganda.
