On encouraging our students to use their imaginations

    Remember that story a few days ago about the 24 year old EMU student who bravely fought off the would be kidnapper that was waiting for her, in the back seat of her car, after class? Well, according to campus police, it never happened. The whole thing, it seems, was fiction.

        In case anyone finds himself or herself really in such a situation: Captain Chris’ Close Combat Training

        WARNING: Do Not Read This If You Have Moral, Ethical Or Religious Reasons Against Hurting (Or Even Killing) Someone Who Violently Attacks You, Your Wife Or Your Kids . . .

        America’s #1 self defense expert, Captain Chris, reveals his amazingly simple system for stopping violent attackers dead in their tracks—no matter your age, experience or fitness level . . .

        Used by The U.S. & U.K. Special Forces, bounty hunters, mercenaries and even professional assassins—who don’t have time to learn complex and outdated martial arts moves that don’t work in “real world” violent attacks.

        So easy, you can master it in just a short weekend… even if you’ve never set foot in a self defense class in your life.

        So effective, even guys with no previous experience are using it to send thugs, gang members and other violent “street predators” into emergency rooms around the world. . . .

        Dear Friend,

        If you’d like to know how even someone who is slow, out-of-shape and has zero self defense experience can, in one hour or less, know more about surviving brutal street attacks than most black belt karate masters. . . .

        What is important is that, for the past several years, I have been teaching (and perfecting) a secret way of fighting that was invented during World War 2—that lets even “regular Joe’s” hurt, cripple and even kill violent attackers that threaten you, your wife or your kids:

        - Without needing to be fast, strong or “in shape.”
        - Without long, sweat-drenched hours of practice.
        - And without needing any fighting experience whatsoever.

        In fact, as strange as it sounds…

        The Less You Know About Fighting Now… The Better This Bizarre Self Defense System Works!

        Read the rest on the site (he gives us three core truths about combat–as ascertained by some of the “world’s richest and most powerful men”–for free).

        I heard that there was a similar case in Ann Arbor recently with a UM student claiming to have been assaulted, and later recanting. Did this kind of stuff always happen, or did kids start becoming more brazen?

        The fine for filing a false police report is $2,000 and as much as 4 years in jail.
