  • It's Not Truth That Matters

    It's about what liars can make uneducated people believe

    Bundoc also said the knife was not a self-defense tool as Hernandez alleged. He said a Kerambit is a combat weapon designed to gut and butcher people

    In reality the kerambit was, like nunchaku and other "weapons" that weren't designed to be weapons, originally a farming tool that is also used as a weapon

      Okay, I suppose in a general sense I agree

      But and very big but, the word "designed" is an out and out lie

      That lie causes a misunderstanding and intentionally misleads the jury

      Had I been on the jury I would be in doubt of the DA's credibility

      If he lied about that, what other lies has he told or will he tell

        Sometimes you are stuck owning the marketing hype of your gee gaw.
        The Fox 479 G10 Black Folding Karambit is the best self-defense tool and utility knife available on the market. This tool has been field tested in the most extreme climates by some truly hardcore people, and has proven itself time and time again to be of the highest quality. Whether you need a utility knife to open boxes and clamshell packaging or a reliable self-defense tool to open a can of whoop ***, Fox karambits are a force to be reckoned with. If you want the most reliability in any situation where a need arises for a good blade that works and works well, this is your knife.

          A sad truth

          For some time I believed that common sense would win the day, I was naive and I no longer believe that

          I believed that if I was attacked, I could defend myself and all would be right with the world, sadly that is seldom true

          As we read in the article some people who are supposed to be about justice are really just in it for themselves and taking a crap on Lady Justice is the thing to do


          As for the Kerambit, in my opinion it is the premier self defense knife

          When combining the kerambit with Harimau (Tiger) Silat, the art that makes best use of that paricular knife, it is simply outstanding

          I carried a kerambit for awhile and studied Silat

          I noticed the reactions from people when they would ask to see the knife, the reactions were visceral and the comments were all negative, so much so that it made me rethink the knife

          After a while I stopped carrying it, my thinking was that if the knife garnered that kind of a response from people I know and them knowing what a teddy bear I am what would the response be from people who don't me should I ever have to use it to defend myself

          I still carry a folder but it is for utility, pepper spray is my go to these days for self defense

          That said, I'm confident that if I am forced to defend myself and use pepper spray I will still be sued, hopefully not prosecuted but given the story above who knows, but maybe pepper spray will be less damaging to me than using other means might be, maybe

            Ricco, I will give you credit for being smart enough to not go to a party, get drunk, have weed and insult the host by trying to steal his girl.

            A little avoidance would would have kept him out of court. Just carry a folding carpet knife, and you will be fine.

              Ricco - youíre just going to have to get used to a reality: if you use lethal force, or injurious force, your life will change. You may well be arrested, you may get sued, and it may happen whether or not your use of force was appropriate or not, or whether you think it was appropriate or not. Accept it. Deal with it. You cannot change it

              There are some steps you can take to minimize the impact, of course, and you know of those. But you canít eliminate them.

              The alternative is you or your loved ones dead.

              ďBetter judged by 12 than carried by 6Ē isnít just trite saying - itís reality. If you canít accept and deal with that, stop carrying and submit to the bad guy. Youíll avoid legal problems.

              there is a significant downside, however . . . .

                I do accept that reality and I believe that is evident from my comments

                Although

                I can't say for certain that death is worse than prosecution

                If prosecution results in conviction how is life in prison better than death

                If prosecution doesn't result in conviction but the result is abject poverty and homelessness because a lifetime of work was spent on legal fee's how is that better than death

                Trust me I have struggled with fighting versus submission many times

                The odds are in favor of surviving a gunshot wound or stabbing, that's the up side, the downside is how much damage would be done and the effect on the quality of life

                Death, total or partial disability, poverty and prison, not great choices

                  Sometimes the term 'Idiot' is a description and not an insult.

                    Sometimes I wonder if these people even read. If anyone is aware of and is out there trying to spread the word to make sure the rest are aware of the possible consequences it is you.

                      That's a rather tortured metaphor

                      A momentary "icky" taste hardly compares to poverty, or a lifetime in prison

                        Still indicates a 'give up' attitude. Ace2

                          Where did I say I have given up

                          After several years of study I merely understand the reality of it all

                          If the police can somehow make an arrest stick your innocence means nothing

                          If the prosecution can somehow get a conviction your innocence means nothing

                          If your money runs out and you can no longer afford a lawyer and have to plead your innocence means nothing

                          If your wife and family are having to live with relatives or are out on the street because your house and car have been sold to pay legal bills or you can no longer make the mortgage or car payments and your and your wife's credit tanks your innocence means nothing

                          Just the reality of it all

                            Reality can really stink. Unfortunately we must face reality in order to properly prepare. Preparation outside of reality is waresd resources and setting yourself up for disappointment.
