Ferguson Study Group VII: 13 Hours from the X
It has been just about 13 hours since the announcement.
Fire was used as a tool.
While there were gunshots - reports of LEO coming under fire do not exist.
We shall see how things go tonight.
Outside of Ferguson: Erroneous information proves again to be more dangerous than facts. Reports that LEO lost an AR and were taking fire from that weapon demonstrate again the importance of verifying information before acting on it. When you let someone else tell you what is happening and you let them interpret what is happening for you - you may as well slip a hoop through your snout and hand them the leash. Anything you do not see with your own eyes and hear with your own ears MUST be considered unfounded until you have more information.
Why is this so important? Because when your town becomes Ferguson you will essentially be on your own. You may have a Team with you, but your Team will likely be in the soup, without the advantages of eyes in the sky and reliable real-time information. Your perspective will be narrow. You can NOT permit yourself to point your weapon at people and potentially take their lives based on the information of a removed third-party.
Final note: As I look across the Commentariat I see WN has a larger footprint in the Liberty sphere than I thought. Many people are painting with a large brush, making broad generalizations (and recommending targeting and RoE based on those generalizations) - and for a Movement that is supposedly founded on Individualism, this can not obtain.
If you only see forests out there - unfuck yourselves and start treating the individual trees as would a moral person.
