MILITARIZED POLICE AROUND THE WORLD routinely use what they designate as “riot control agents” against their rebellious civilian populations. Because the substances travel with the whims of the wind and are often used in large quantities, a person does not even have to attend a demonstration to become exposed.

Once hit with these, you need to know how to decontaminate your skin and clothes, and how to administer proper first aid.

David F. Crosby, an airborne infantry and military police veteran, has published Riot Control Agent First Aid and Decontamination Procedures which provides this vital information.

The book is available in paper and electronic formats.

ANYONE WHO HAS ATTENDED a demonstration knows that when news headlines blare, “Protesters Clash with Police,” it means that RoboCops, armed with weapons of war, attacked unarmed demonstrators wearing shorts and flip-flops.

In order to justify the militarization of police forces, the cops have to keep up the pretense that it is they who are at risk from dangerous crowds.

The science of this is in books such as Riot Prevention And Control: A Police Officer’s Guide to Managing Violent and Nonviolent Crowds, by Capt. Charles Beene, a 30-year veteran of the vicious San Francisco police force.

It’s a manual for state repressive tactics, with us as its target, so it’s worth taking a look at (but not buying, of course). From Paladin Press: http://www.paladin-press.com/product/Riot_Prevention_and_Control/Other_Police_Science

EVER ADVANCING TECHNOLOGY makes it increasingly difficult to be free of being tracked. Cell phones, even when off, can be honed in on as seen when programmers sitting in Colorado Springs, Colo. fire a drone strike at an assumed dangerous terrorist 6,000 miles away, killing him and half of his family.

A Ketchum, Idaho firm recently introduced the SeV RFID travel vest and jacket to protect against technology being used to exploit weaknesses in cell phones, credit cards and passports.

Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) security has been a growing issue over the past decade since all U.S. passports since 2006 use this technology (along with most credit cards and cell phones), making anyone’s personal information easily obtainable by electronic thieves or a drone assassin programmer.

Tucking your passport and cell phone into one of these garments’ pockets stops the RFID waves from being read from afar. Information is at scottevest.com.

INDIA IS A COUNTRY where a rape occurs every 22 minutes. Three young women have developed a rape-repellent bra that can shock and burn attackers called Society Harnessing Equipment, or SHE for short.

The bra contains a pressure sensor connected to an electric circuit that generates a shock of 3,800 kilovolts, enough to stun an attacker and severely burn his hand.

The moment its pressure sensors are activated, the bra’s built-in GPS also alerts the police and the victim’s parents to the location where the attack is taking place.

False alarms are possible, but the bras are designed and calibrated to prevent this. The force of a hug, for instance, won’t create a shock, and there’s an on and off switch.

Other women have designed sandals that deliver electric shocks and jeans that have a built-in SOS button.

“The moment we hit someone with our sandal,” one of the designers says, “it will send messages to friends and family members. It will also give a shock to the criminals and immobilize them for a few seconds.”
