Commercial: “Why the Law of Self Defense?”

Just for laughs, we produced a brief video commercial in our little studio here at Law of Self Defense HQ. Obviously, videography is not our strong suit, but I thought it came out well enough to share on a Friday afternoon. Feedback always appreciated! 🙂

Kind Mention by Andrew McCarthy at National Review Online

Andrew McCarthy was kind enough to give us a shout-out in his post at National Review on the acquittal of Baltimore Police Officer Caesar Goodson in the most recent “Freddie Gray” Case. Here’s the relevant portion, but of course his whole post is worth a read: Mosby’s office has repeatedly changed its theory of how …

LI: Freddie Gray: Sheriff Who Swore Charges Against Officers Says He Never Investigated

From my post over at Legal Insurrection: Well, well, well.  It looks like the civil suits filed against State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby (who brought the prosecution againt the officers) and Baltimore Assistant Sheriff Cogen (who swore out the charges against the officers) is beginning to bear strategic fruit, just as I’d predicted was their true …

June 6, 1944: D-Day: Had It Gone Wrong

On this date 72 years ago General Dwight D. Eisenhower sent five military divisions by sea and three divisions by air against an area of mainland Europe held by 58 German divisions. Success, needless to say, was far from certain. While planning for success, Eisenhower also had the prudence to prepare for failure–in the form …

Was Samuel R. Hayes III of “Caliber Training Group” Charged with Multiple Criminal Felonies?

Well, the feedback generated by my earlier post, “Meet ‘Caliber Training Group,’ Samuel R. Hayes III” has been overwhelming, to say the least.   It seems my own limited experience with Mr. Hayes this last 24 hours has not been unique. Perhaps the most interesting feedback has centered around Mr. Hayes’ own claim that “Again, …

ffff       So, THIS happened. A couple of days ago I was reaching out to various training schools to ask if they’d be interested in hosting a Law of Self Defense Seminar, a routine task in our office. I’m pleased to say that several of the schools got back to me and seminars …

One Drawback to the “Say NOTHING to the Police!” Approach

Many people advocate that in the aftermath of a defensive use-of-force event you say literally nothing to the police except that you want to speak with your lawyer. And that “Say NOTHING” approach is one way to go. At Law of Self Defense, however, we suggest you consider an alternative, the “Say LITTLE” approach–meaning, saying …
