“Who Declared War on Who? And Intro to INTERPOSITION”

“Who Declared War on Who? And Intro to INTERPOSITION”

 ‘”How would things be DIFFERENT,” muses Dale Brown of the Detroit-based Threat Management Center, “if police officers were given financial rewards and commendations for resolving dangerous situations PEACEfully, rather than for using force in situations where it’s NEITHER JUSTIFIED NOR EFFECTIVE?”’

Indeed “IF police officers …RESOLVED dangerous TRIGGER situations PEACEFULLY [INSTEAD of using 4 D’s of Disconnected Communication which ESCALATE CONFLICT: Diagnosis of you should be ashamed; Demand you do it or else; you Deserve to be shamed and beaten; Denial of self response ability I cannot control myself you cause me to beat you; you must be guilty; talk to the judge I’m just doing my j o b].”

Brown’s approach to Public Safety IS “PRECISELY the OPPOSITE of what police are TRAINED and EXPECTED to DO,” says the 44-year-old Entrepreneur. The TMC eschews the “Prosecutorial PHILOSOPHY of Applied VIOLENCE” and the officer safety uber alles mindset that characterize government law enforcement agencies. This is because his very successful private security company has an entirely Different MISSION – the Protection of Persons and Property, RATHER than enforcing the will of the political class. Those CONTRASTING Approaches are displayed to great advantage in proto-dystopian Detroit…

Here’s a glimpse at what happens when really smart people build rocket ships INSTEAD of protesting gravity.

LEO Alternatives

Our sense of security is fundamental to living an enjoyable life. Nobody wants to sleep with one eye open.

As long as there are predatory people in the world, our need for reliable, effective security will be there.

Since we know we can’t rely on cops to help us in an emergency, where else can we turn?

Security is being crowdsourced. Cell411 and Guardian Circle are smart phone apps dedicated to providing a superior alternative to relying on 911 in a crisis. These apps let you instantly alert a chosen network of people (friends, family, or others nearby who use the app) that there’s an emergency, like an accident, altercation, or health crisis.

Cell411 also lets you immediately start streaming video. If an aggressor knows that the video you’re recording can’t be deleted even if your phone is destroyed, that alone can be a powerful deterrent.

“It should be noted the private security in the US generally consists of unarmed personnel who are for the most part disregarded by criminals”.

    I DISAGREE. An on-site security guard is a greater deterrent to theft than some remote police station. Criminals may be more frightened of police, given the propensity that police have for violence. But that only applies if the police are present, and if they are interested in stopping the theft. They have no incentive for either activity – police are never around when you need them, and they don’t give a damn is somebody stole from you.

    I should also add that many “unarmed” security guards carry concealed weapons. My father worked “unarmed” security for many years, and my mother tailor-made his uniform so that he could conceal a handgun and still have quick access to it. He even had to draw it once, and the criminal simply ran away. He never reported the incident, fearing prosecution because he was carrying a gun illegally.

    Police officers spend very little time trying to stop criminals or recover stolen property. They spend the MAJORITY of their time generating revenue for the state – they are little more than roving tax collectors. This is EVIDENT by the latest numbers for civil asset forfeiture.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com…

    Police officers steal *at least* $1.5 billion MORE than conventional criminals, annually. And this is without counting taxation as theft (which it is). I have YET TO meet a police officer who is more than some thug with a gun, working as an enforcer for organized crime.

    As the latest news from the Imperial capital confirms, the people who work within our government do not even pretend to follow the rules they make. They are liars, thieves, killers and gangsters. If a government employee is not directly guilty of a felony, then that person is *at least* guilt of functioning as an accessory and accomplice to felony activity.

    Private security is SELF-Correcting. If a private security firm misbehaves, then they will lose business and be forced out of the marketplace. And if a private firm starts acting like a gang of brigands, then other private firms will be hired to go after them.

    People must be held accountable for their actions. Possession of some tin does not make one exempt, nor does it make one a hero.

Forked by the State IF you let it be so…

Fork (chess)

Tactic in chess
In chess, a fork is a tactic whereby a single piece makes two or more direct attackssimultaneously. Most commonly two pieces are threatened, which is also sometimes called a double attack. The attacker usually aims to gain material by capturing one of the opponent’s pieces. The defender often finds it difficult to counter two or more threats in a single move. The attacking piece is called theforking piece; the pieces attacked are said to be forked. A piece that is defended can still said to be forked if the forking piece has a lower value.Besides attacking pieces, a target of a fork can be a direct mating threat (for example, attacking an unprotected knight while simultaneously setting up a battery of queenand bishop to threaten mate). Or a target can be an implied threat (for example, a knight may attack an unprotected piece while simultaneously threaten to fork queen and rook).[further explanation needed]
Forks are often used as part of a combination which may involve other types of chess tactics as well

Meanwhile blah blah, the typical DA announcement on local TV news displays the GIFT for seething self-preoccupation of utter denial of “Self Responsibilty” as a World View that TYPIFIES their caste.

As Cantwell points out “We oppose Theft, Fraud, Assault, Rape, AND MURDER. We oppose Predation of Person and Property. If you had done a very good job of preventing these things, then we would have no quarrel.”

“This however, is NOT the case. Your agencies have become the GREATEST PERPRTRATORS–Terrocrats–of these crimes in the history of mankind.” We are not talking about Matt Dillon, Dear Reader, we are talking the Sheriff of Nottingham AND his men. See Wendy McElroy on such and BANALITY of evil.

Call the Anti-Police: Ending the State’s “Security” Monopoly

http://freedominourtime.blogspot.com/2014/09/call-anti-police-ending-states-security.html?m=1

Dale Brown (center) with Garrett Ean and Pete Eyre.

|”How would things be different,” muses Dale Brown of the Detroit-based Threat Management Center, “if police officers were given financial rewards and commendations for resolving dangerous situations peacefully, rather than for using force in situations where it’s neither justified nor effective?”

Brown’s approach to public safety is “precisely the opposite of what police are trained and expected to do,” says the 44-year-old entrepreneur.  The TMC eschews the “prosecutorial philosophy of applied violence” and the officer safety uber allesmindset that characterize government law enforcement agencies. This is because his very successful private security company has an entirely different mission – the protection of persons and property, rather than enforcing the will of the political class. Those contrasting approaches are displayed to great advantage in proto-dystopian Detroit.

“We’ve been hired by three of the most upscale neighborhoods in Detroit to provide 24/7 security services,” Brown proudly informed me during a telephone interview. “People who are well-off are very willing to pay for Lamborghini-quality security services, which means that our profit margin allows us to provide free services to people who are poor, threatened, and desperate for the kind of help the police won’t provide.”

“Unlike the police, we don’t respond after a crime has been committed to conduct an investigation and – some of the time, at least – arrest a suspect,” Brown elaborates. “Our approach is based on deterrence and prevention. Where prevention fails, our personnel are trained in a variety of skills – both psychological and physical – to dominate aggressors without killing them.”

Police typically define their role in terms of what they are permitted to do to people, rather than what they are required to do forthem. Brown’s organization does exactly the reverse, even when dealing with suspected criminals.

To illustrate, Brown refers to an incident from a security patrol in which he encountered a black teenager “who was walking in a neighborhood at about 3:00 a.m. dressed in a black hooded sweatshirt, doing what is sometimes called `the drift’ – it was pretty clear he was up to something.”

Rather than calling the police – who, giventheir typical four-hour response time, wouldn’t have arrived soon enough to be of any help, as if helping were part of their job description – Brown took action that was both preventive and non-aggressive.

“I told him, `There are criminals here who might rob you, so you’ll get free bodyguard service anytime you’re in the neighborhood,’” Brown related to me. “I also asked for his name and personal information for a `Good person file’ that would clear him with the cops next time he decided to go jogging in a black hoodie a three in the morning. He didn’t have to give me that information, of course, but he told me what I needed to know – and we’ve never seen him there again.”

Brown and his associates take a similar approach to dealing with minor problems that usually result in police citations that clog court dockets and blight the lives of harmless people.

“When we see someone who is drunk or otherwise intoxicated, we offer to take their keys and call their families to get them home,” he reports. “This way we keep them safe from harm – and, just as importantly, protect them from prosecution. Again, everything we do is the opposite of what the police do. If you have a joint in your pocket, the cops will be all over you – but if you’re facing actual danger, they’re nowhere to be found, and aren’t required to help you even if they show up.”

That contrast is most visible in confrontations with potentially dangerous people. Brown’s company receives referrals to provide security for people who face active threats, such as victims of domestic violence. One representative case involveda young mother whose daughter had been abducted by a violent, abusive father with a lengthy criminal history. The child was rescued and reunited with her mother without guns being drawn or anybody being hurt.

For reasons of accountability and what the private sector calls “quality assurance,” Brown and his colleagues recorded that operation, as they document nearly everything else they do. However, they weren’t playing to the cameras. The same can’t be said of the Detroit PD SWAT team that stormed the home of 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones at midnight in May 2010 while filming the assault for a cable television program.

Officer Joseph Weekley, who burst through the door carrying a ballistic shield and an MP5 submachine gun, shot and killed Aiyana, who had been sleeping on the living room couch. By the time she was killed terrified little girl had already been burned by a flash-bang grenade that had been hurled into the living room.

The home was surrounded with toys and other indicia that children resided therein, and neighbors had pleaded with the police not to carry out the blitzkrieg. The cops did arrest a suspect in a fatal shooting, but he resided in a different section of the same building. In any case, the suspect could have been taken into custody without a telegenic paramilitary assault – if the safety of those on the receiving end of police violence had been factored into the SWAT team’s calculations.

Owing in no small measure to public outrage, Weekly has been charged with involuntary manslaughter and careless discharge of a weapon resulting in death. A jury deadlocked on the charges in July 2013.Weekley now faces a second trial that will produce a conviction only if the prosecution can overcome the presumption that the officer’s use of deadly force was reasonable. This is a function of the entirely spurious, and endlessly destructive, doctrine of “qualified immunity,” which protects police officers from personal liability when their actions result in unjustified harm to the persons or property of innocent people.

Lost Angel: Aiyana.

The rationale behind qualified immunity is the belief that absent such protection competent and talented people wouldn’t enlist as peace officers. In practice, however, qualified immunity merely emboldens incompetent and vicious police officers.

“Police should be subject to exactly the same laws and liabilities that the rest of us face,” contends Brown. “If we don’t have perfect reciprocity, then police should be held to a higher standard of accountability than the rest of the citizenry. If they commit criminal acts that result in injury or death, police should do double the time that a `civilian’ would face, because they’re supposed to be professionals.”

As private sector professionals, Brown observes, “we have double accountability – first to our clients who pay us, and then to the criminal justice system and civil courts if we do something wrong. And because the police usually see us as competitors, they are very eager to come after us if we screw up. But in all the years we’ve been working, we’ve had no deaths or injuries – either to our clients or to our own people – no criminal charges, and no lawsuits.”

Not only do Brown and his associates operate without the benefit of “qualified immunity,” they are required to expose themselves to physical risk on behalf of their clients – something that police are trained to avoid.

“For police officers, going home at the end of the shift is the highest priority,” Brown observes. “For us it can’t be. When we’re hired to protect a client, his home, his business, his family, we’ve made a choice to put the client’s safety above our own, and to make sure that he or she gets home safely at the end of the day.”

When people seek help from the police, Brown points out, they’re inviting intervention by someone who has no enforceable duty to protect them, but will be rewarded for injuring them or needlessly complicating their lives.

“Let’s examine this logically,” Brown begins. “What is this human being – the police officer – going to get out of becoming involved in your troubles? Will be he rewarded for helping you to solve them, especially if this involves a personal risk? Would solving your problem be worth getting injured or killed?”

“We’re dealing with a basic question of human motivations,” Brown continues. “Police are not required to intervene to protect you – there is a very long list of judicial precedents proving this. They’re actually rewarded for not intervening. Here, once again, I emphasize that Threat Management is not comparable to the police. We follow exactly the opposite approach. People don’t have to work with Threat Management, but if they choose to, that’s what we expect of them.”

Some critics of TMC and other private security firms insist that their personnel cannot match the qualifications and experience of government-employed police officers. That objection wildly overestimates the professional standards that must be met in order for an individual to become a government-licensed purveyor of privileged violence.

“An individual can become a police officer in six months,” Brown points out. “Can you become a doctor or an EMT in six months? Is there any other profession in which employees can become `qualified’ to make life-and-death decisions on behalf of other people after just a few months of training?”

By way of supplementing Brown’s point: In Arkansas, an applicant can become a police officer in a day, and work in that capacity for a year, without professional certification of any kind. However, to become a licensed practicing cosmetologist, an applicant must pass a state board examination and complete 2,000 hours of specialized training. For an investment of 600 hours an applicant can qualify to work as a manicurist or instructor.

While Arkansas strictly regulates those who cut hair or paint nails in private, voluntary transactions, it imposes no training or licensing standards whatsoever on armed people who claim the authority to inflict lethal violence on others. This is not to concede that there is any way one human being can become legitimately “qualified” to commit aggressive violence against another.

“Law enforcement attracts a certain personality type that is prone to narcissism and aggression,” Brown asserts, speaking from decades of experience. “People like that get weeded out from our program very early. We protect innocent people from predators, and we can’t carry out that mission by hiring people who are predatory themselves. Our people receive extensive training in firearms and unarmed combat techniques, but they’re also taught to look at all humans as members of the same family. The question we want them to ask themselves is – in what circumstances would you shoot, or otherwise harm a member of your family? They’re trained to apply that standard in all situations involving a potential use of force. People who can’t think that way aren’t going to fit in with our program.”

Brown emphatically agrees that the phenomenon called “police militarization” is a huge and growing menace, but insists that the core problem is “not the military hardware, or the other trappings of militarization, but the system itself. Police agencies attract the wrong kind of people and then tell them, `You’re like God’ – they get to impose their will on others and use lethal force at their discretion. And whensomeone who is really golden shows up – that is, an ethical, conscientious person who wants to protect the public – they get redirected into a role that will minimize their influence for good by people who are worried about their own job security.”

“Ideally, the best approach would be to abolish the current system and start over,” Brown concludes. “But the very least we should demand would be total equity and complete accountability – which would mean, as a starting point, doing away with this idea of `qualified immunity.’ Police are citizens, and they should be governed by the same laws that apply to all citizens. No exceptions, no special protections.”

Several studies have shown that there are between three and four times as many private peace officers – such as security guards, armored truck drivers, and private investigators – as sworn law enforcement officers in the United States. That fact demonstrates that the security market iscompletely unserved by government law enforcement agencies. This shouldn’t be surprising, since – as I have observed before– police agencies serve the interests of those who plunder private property, and thus can’t be expected to protect it.

Police personnel practice aggressive violence from the shelter of “qualified immunity.” The absence of such protection doesn’t deter talented, motivated people such as Dale Brown and his associates – and others providing similar services inHouston, Oakland, and elsewhere — from seeking employment as private security officers who actually accept personal risk to protect property.

Why not abolish qualified immunity for allsecurity personnel? Critics of that proposal might protest that this would undermine the state’s monopoly on the provision of “security” by requiring its employees to compete on equal terms with the private sector. Which is precisely the point.

    work with outstanding private enterprise security like Dale Browns in order to franchise them, to get them all over the country so that subscribing to private security becomes as commonplace as subscribing to cell phone service.

  16. erinee, solutions are as simple as “let the market decide” to the slightly more complex treaties
    found on other great sites as striketheroot and Mises institute.

    If you doubt that statement i invite you to post your concerns
    and review the replies/responses
    that are usually most abundant.

  18. Well seems the incompetence of the system is being pointed out. They won’t like this one bit but who the fuck cares.

    Im amazed and pleased how this private security handles things in a peaceful manner and trains its personnel extensively. They might use force but only if said perp gives them no choice as in absolute last resort which thankfully does not happen often.

    while the police today takes the approach of put more boots on the ground aka numbers over skill which is not working and it allows some horrific people to get in.

    nice article and congrats that private security firm.

  20. This will never happen in our country. To much tax money that government spends for this type of control.

  22. To Mike Alford: Will had it “figured out” a long time ago (as far as I can tell). When are YOU gonna figure it out, Mr. Minarchist? When Leviathan is allowed even a toe in the door, it will soon be sitting on your head! Only when Leviathan is eliminated in total (anarchy) will we not have it busting through our doors and sitting on our heads! The vaunted parchment of amerikan limited government was allegedly (ahem!) supposed to restrict Leviathan at essentially minarchistic levels . . . see how well Leviathan likes being being “limited”? NOT! Keep going Mike; I think you’ll get there.

  28. I’m pretty moderate in my libertarianism. I’m skeptical of state police, but I struggle to see a clear systematic reason why private police would be immune to the abuses.

    A “true” libertarian friend sent me this article, and I’m really impressed to see some great policing being done by a private company. I’m left wondering what is special about “Threat Management Center”.

    What makes them get things so right? Is it simply the fact that they don’t get paid with tax dollars? Would removing “qualified immunity” from a state police force improve the quality of policing? Does state law enforcement play an important part in keeping private police forces accountable?

  30. The chief advantage to a private security company like TMC is precisely the fact that they do not consider themselves to be “special.” They cannot initiate force to compel compliance; they can only use force defensively. And when they do so, they are fully liable, both criminally and civilly, for any abuses they might commit. Unlike government law enforcement personnel, TMC employees and other private security personnel cannot take refuge in the spurious doctrine of “qualified immunity,” as you point out.

    Trite as it may seem, I’m reminded of the film “Paul Blart: Mall Cop,” which — silly as it was — actually offers a very good (albeit cartoonishly over-the-top) illustration of the difference between law enforcers and peace officers, the latter of whom are dedicated to protecting property, commerce, and innocent lives.
