Crowd Defense™ #5: Pre-Violent Solutions Post Charlottesville

The things I’ve been warn­ing about have come to pass. The FBI has opened an inves­ti­ga­tion into the “alt-right.”  What do you think that means?  It means that they have wide rang­ing pow­er to do what­ev­er they want.  Who’s alt-right?  Who isn’t?  I’m not sure any­more.  As a cit­i­zen­ry, we’ve played right into their hands again.  A broad inves­ti­ga­tion has been opened and it could bring in any­one who any­one can claim is “alt-right.”  I’m sure read­ers will notice that no such inves­ti­ga­tion has been opened into Antifa.

Crowd Defense is for peo­ple who are for­ward think­ing. Protests do not lend them­selves to for­ward think­ing because of the chaos.  For this rea­son, Crowd Defense is chang­ing its focus from riot spe­cif­ic pol­i­cy to sup­port­er dri­ven, pre-vio­lent solu­tions.  The mis­sion of Crowd Defense is to devel­op pre-vio­lent solu­tions to neu­tral­ize dan­ger­ous peo­ple who are a loom­ing threat to your phys­i­cal safe­ty. Sup­port the project here:

As a sup­port­er, you can help us iden­ti­fy fre­quent­ly expe­ri­enced prob­lems. Crowd Defense will ana­lyze and solve these sce­nar­ios using legal and oth­er pro­fes­sion­al ser­vices.  For exam­ple:

The Drug Deal­er Down­stairs

You are rent­ing an apart­ment and have bad neigh­bors who you sus­pect are deal­ing drugs. You’ve seen what appears to be a gun dur­ing these trans­ac­tions.  You are wor­ried that these peo­ple or their clients present a bur­glary or assault risk.

For this sce­nario, we will address land­lord ten­ant rights, cer­tain real­i­ties about cre­at­ing a record with police, and oth­er strate­gies. We will address how to report these crimes while remain­ing anony­mous and avoid­ing doxxing and FOIA requests.

Ter­ror­ist Across the Street

Peo­ple liv­ing across from your home some­times go door-to-door ask­ing for dona­tions to non-exis­tent char­i­ties and appear to be Mus­lim. They rou­tine­ly stock and emp­ty their yard of Taco­ma trucks.  So many peo­ple come and go that it is hard to know who lives there.

For this sce­nario, we will address how to cre­ate a record with the police, Home­land, and ICE. We will also fig­ure out whether they rent or own.  If they rent, we can fig­ure out how to put pres­sure to the land­lord.  We can also dis­cuss how to find and report zon­ing vio­la­tions.

Pedophile in the Neigh­bor­hood

Your creepy, old neigh­bor has loud, late, drunk­en par­ties. Under­age boys are seen leav­ing those par­ties very late at night.

For this sce­nario, we will show how to iden­ti­fy peo­ple on the sex offend­er reg­istry. We will address how to report parole vio­la­tion.  We will describe how to report things to the police in a way that max­i­mizes the like­li­hood that some­thing gets done.

Riot Down­town

You work in a dense­ly pop­u­lat­ed urban area that has had some riot­ing. You are wor­ried that you will be caught up in a vio­lent protest some­day.

For this sce­nario, we can sug­gest some basic pro­tec­tion such as bal­lis­tic back­pack inserts. We can also dis­cuss legal issues on what you can do if peo­ple attempt to stop your vehi­cle.

I have per­son­al­ly dealt with most of these exam­ples. Oth­ers, I have been involved with in an advi­so­ry capac­i­ty.  We can address oth­ers that are pro­posed by the sup­port­ers.

In these dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tions, your safe­ty is at risk. If you wait for a self-defense sit­u­a­tion, you can face crim­i­nal charges even if you win.  If you do noth­ing, your prop­er­ty is at risk every time you leave.  And your per­son is at risk every time you return home.  If you take action with­out think­ing it through, you could cre­ate an oppor­tu­ni­ty for some­one to sue you or acci­den­tal­ly com­mit your own crime.

No one but you and yours can take proac­tive mea­sures. Police can sel­dom do any­thing until there is a crime, and even then they have no oblig­a­tion to pro­tect you.  Lawyers also pre­fer that dam­ages have already been done, and then charge you between $150 and $300 per hour to try to help you recov­er your loss­es.  By tak­ing a proac­tive approach, we can win before it becomes a police mat­ter or a law­suit.

I am an attor­ney, and I under­stand how to think ahead to avoid a prob­lem before quan­tifi­able dam­ages or crimes result. I’m also more ver­sa­tile and able to intro­duce oth­er dis­ci­plines:  train­ing, busi­ness, pri­vate inves­ti­ga­tion, group action.  With your sup­port, we can solve prob­lems before they become crimes or civ­il dam­ages.  With this gen­er­al infor­ma­tion, you can save mon­ey on pro­fes­sion­al ser­vices or even solve the prob­lem on your own.  You should pre­pare for a self-defense sit­u­a­tion, but doing noth­ing while you wait is too risky and expen­sive.  Don’t fight. Just win.

Infor­ma­tion, opin­ions, and com­mu­ni­ca­tions pro­vid­ed are for infor­ma­tion­al pur­pos­es only because the laws of your juris­dic­tion may dif­fer. They are based on gen­er­al legal prin­ci­ples and are not intend­ed for the pur­pose of pro­vid­ing spe­cif­ic legal advice or opin­ions. Under no cir­cum­stances does this con­sti­tute the estab­lish­ment of an attor­ney-client rela­tion­ship. Do not send con­fi­den­tial or sen­si­tive infor­ma­tion to me because your com­mu­ni­ca­tion will not be treat­ed as priv­i­leged or con­fi­den­tial. No com­mu­ni­ca­tions you send will pro­hib­it me, my law firm, or my oth­er busi­ness­es from rep­re­sent­ing dif­fer­ent clients in the same mat­ter. By send­ing infor­ma­tion, you con­sent to the sub­se­quent use of that infor­ma­tion. Do not send infor­ma­tion that could be sig­nif­i­cant­ly harm­ful if used against you. Back­pack inserts are offered through Nolan Prod­ucts and Ser­vices LLC dba Coy­otl.
