Self-Defense Tip #99 — A Good Advice on Deniability

Deniability in self-defense: How to talk safely

Modern states, that is police states, have laws to keep their citizens powerless and dependent on the state. The states want people to be fearful of exercising their natural rights–like the right to defend themselves. The states practically prevent people from exercising their right to protect themselves–by making it illegal to prepare for self-defense. In most countries and in many US states possession of weapons is prohibited. In European Union and in UK even possessing an everyday object, be that a cane, a pen, a set of keys, whatever–with an intent to defend yourself–is illegal.

With that in mind learn to think correctly and, if interrogated, to talk safely (best through your lawyer), like so:

I bought this telescopic umbrella, or a pair of sturdy boots, because it is made to last and withstands what its cheap low-quality counterparts cannot. NOT: I bought this telescopic umbrella, or a pair of boots, because it is strong enough to defend myself with. That would be an illegal intent.

In case you had to defend yourself, say: I was suddenly assaulted, in fear for my life, so I used what was within my reach (or in my hand or on me) to protect myself. NOT: I expected an attack so I folded my walking-stick umbrella and grabbed it well or I put my flashlight in my fist. That would be an illegal intent.

Remember that police officers have arrest quotas to meet and prosecutors are rewarded for convictions, no matter whether right or wrong. Numbers matter, you and justice don’t (see Self-Defense Tip #91 — Whack, Then What? Arrest?). Further, prosecutors are not punished for convicting innocent people, and even if you will not be convicted, you will be ruined.
