Une Suggestion Pour le Securite de France Contre les Terroristes

Fait comme les Suisses faisant.

Arme et instructe toutes les gens.  Fait de toutes votre citoyennes un armee en reserve, observant et vigilant, prepare a agir immediatement contra un attaque terroriste.  Le danger des arretes faux est moins que le danger de la vulnerabilite a terroristes.

Nous somme toutes Charlie.  Laissez Charlie se defende.

...Et pardonne ma Francais terrible;  je ne l'ai etudie depuis 1978.

For people like me that never took the language, via Google Translate:
"Made like the Swiss doing.  Weapon and instructors and researchers all people. Made of all your citizens an army in reserve, observing and vigilant, prepared to act immediately countered a terrorist attack. The danger of false arrested is less than the danger of a terrorist vulnerability.  We are all Charlie. Let Charlie defende oneself.  ... And forgive my terrible French; I have studied since 1978."

"The danger of false arrested is less than the danger of a terrorist vulnerability"

OK I do have a bit of a problem with that. Because it is not likely to be arrest but violence.

And because of this article:

Well, it's a little bit off, but you got the gist. (Actually, I have *not* studied it since 1978.)
Here in the US we have several states that allow Concealed Carry *without* training, and plenty of PO'ed people who are quite willing to deal with an attack by terrorists, or even common crooks. Has there been any great bloodbath of innocent Muslims here?

Prof. Godel Fishbreath, Otter said...

Ok, there have been no muslem terriorist attacks in those states for over 12 years, right?
So no data is no data.
But yeah, your point is that guns are not the problem.
That has little to do with my point: amateurs being encouraged to report odd things overwhelm the system with trash and oddities like you and me getting reported. It leaves sense and sanity behind. Read that article. It had nothing to say on the gun issue, and much to say about people being urge to report every and any thing.

It also acknowledges that amateurs that have not been so urged are a good resource.

But because of that, I feel that "The danger of false arrested is less than the danger of a terrorist vulnerability." is very wrong.

See boston 'bomb'./

The false flashing one under the bridge not the bomb at the race.

Heheheh. Well, the bomb at the race was all too real, and yes, 'twas citizen reporting that pointed the cops toward the bombers. The cops in the USA have had long experience with what happens when they put out a public notice of a crime, or ask the public for information about "known suspects". They surely ought to know by now how to filter out the useless reports from the useful. Also, I'd stress the *training* and *information* for the public -- indeed as the Swiss do. The average citizen knows much more about his/her neighborhood, job-site and usual hangouts than the police do or ever could, and citizen info can be tremendously valuable -- provided the citizens know what to look for and how to keep a cool head about it, and the way to get that is training, training, training. Now, who's going to do it?
