Walmart Pepper Spray - Walmart Chaos

Crime related to pepper-pray are sooo boring! bring on the innocent bystander!
All these pepper spraying news seems to be getting out of hand. Since the bizarrely casual UC Davis cop whose pepper-spray brutality became an international story last week news related to spraying can seems to pop-up more and more recently.

Now more news relating to the humble self defense tool just made headline again on a particular season Black Friday, this time it's in Wal-Mart!

Happy Black Friday! Have some pepper!
Check out the news that covers the Walmart incident on black friday. (courtesy of other sources)

Mystery woman....and her pepper spray
An angry (and strategic) shopper in Los Angeles pepper sprayed about 20 people trying to get X-Boxes 360 on Thursday night, sending at least one person to the hospital. In North Carolina, a shootout broke out at 2 a.m. outside a mall where shoppers had gathered.

"There was a stampede at Walmart from people getting Xbox games for half off," he said. "There was no control. People were getting stampeded and trampled. There were people screaming, yelling that they were being trampled or crushed. LAPD Detective Michael Fesperman says the woman, caught in the rush for video-game consoles, may have feared for her life.
"This woman may have fired her pepper spray in self-defense."

"What am I going to charge her with?" Los Angeles police Detective Michael Fesperman asked the Los Angeles Daily News.

"This woman may have fired her pepper spray in self-defense." According to the police, it was "in her rights" for the woman to carry the pepper spray.

Notice it says....MAY have fired in self-defense. Im not implying that she is wrong or right. What i AM implying is that what if it wasn't for self defense? What if some smartass guy/girl decides to hoard for chaos so they can cut in line in a shopping mob?

An all out pepper-spray war!

Since these things are becoming more and more accesible we might even see people pepper-spraying animals.

Hey! you leave that Wing Chun Bear alone!

Pepper Spray Cop - Martial Meme!

In a somewhat related news to my blog about Self defense tools, i recently came across this piece of news where it seems to link back to my previous question as wether these self defense tools are really making the streets any safer than it should be?

On November 18th, 2011, a group of students at the University of California Davis campus gathered on campus for an Occupy Protest, during which they formed a human chain by linking their arms together. When they refused to comply with the police request to leave, UC Davis Police officer Lieutenant John Pike and another officer walked across the the group, administering orange pepper spray straight down the line of unmoving students
Just strolling around...spraying pepper for marination....now where did i put my can of salt spray?
The picture above is a photo of the incident made internet buzz as how casual the cop sprayed his peppersprays onto the protestors, he is now famed as the "Casually Pepperspray everything Cop" with the power and tools of internet photoshopping, the incident became a meme. Like the Zhangief Kid blog i did, im going to start calling these Martial Memes!

Your making too much noise there cat...

Ima let you finish......NOT!

Unethical much?.......

I shall spray you all to HELL!!!!!
Un-ethical? Maybe. Is it hilarious? YES IT TOTALLY IS! I love you internet people!

Kubotan - A self defense tool....or an aggressor Weapon?

Reach for the sky kitty Cat!
We live in a dangerous society, a society where people can just jump out of some shrubbery and just attacked and/or rape you regardless of gender, so you decided to go to pay tons of money for self defense courses, or even buy some DVDs for some self defense tips from MMA Legend, Bas Rutten. Only to find yourself not funny enough like Bas to protect yourself. 

So you decided to arm yourself with Self Defense Weaponry such as the Taser, Pepper Spray, even retractable baton. etc etc. 

One thing that caught my attention is a Self defense tool call Kubotan.

Its an ugly oversize keychain that may save your life
It's kinda cool coz it has a bit of that Ninja sneakyness to it, holding a hidden yet deadly weapon and can easily be accessible by anyone who wish to protect themselves. 
Haters may say, "It's only a piece of metal that hardly fits in your pocket! Its not tazed and it doesn't shoot out Pepper Spray, how could a piece of metal so small protect anyone from thugs?" 
Well look at this demonstration video and judge for yourself. 

It's small but sturdy steel, have a small ounce of weight for extra power, by hitting sensitive area as demonstrated in the video, it can temporarily stun the aggressor to release their grip on you. For those nicpickers may find it ugly can choose from the wide range of other Kubotans from the colorful to the extremely deadly!

From the Hidden 
The Deadly

 The Variety 
The Practical

And Totally Illegal !!!

So for the Martial Philosophers/Martial Skeptics who loves to start philosophical arguments may revel in this great question i'd like to ask. 

You don't want make your girlfriend/wife angry when she pack one of these!
"After looking through that video, is the street any safer for anyone anymore?"

Street Fights, well executed Martial Moves - great form

We all seen them, brutal street fights, thugs and gangsters beating each other caught on tape. At times we see fist fighting brutality making headlines on local news, and even slamming global headline in the internet like the infamous Zhangief Kid

Sometimes we catch glimpse of idiots flailing hands around not hitting their target and once awhile we catch well executed blows. Most notably well executed Martial Arts blows. 

At first you may think this guy is acting it out, but looking at his low stance and focus stare at the baddies he doesn't looked scared or even flinched. Great demonstration of Martial Grace. One nice solid hit and down goes bad boys. For a martial art enthusiast, its always inspirational to see such sights.

Although I AM curious as to what martial arts this man is doing. I can't seem to tell. Anyone might know what style of martial arts he is doing?
