"Are You A Sheep, Wolf, Or Sheepdog?"

    "It is better to die on your feet than to die on your knees!"                                     -Emiliano Zapata


    According to a recent article written for law enforcement officers by LTC. Dave Grossman, author of "On Killing", most of you are in the 'sheep' category.

   There is no shame in that designator; Grossman defines a sheep as a productive, valuable member of society that would only hurt another sheep by accident.

   Violence has no part in the life of the sheep and there is a strong tendency of sheep to live in denial. They deny the existence of individuals actively using violence to mercilessly prey upon  sheep to fulfill their needs.

   Grossman designates those individuals, who mercilessly prey upon the sheep, as 'wolves'. These are that two percent of our society where the criminal sociopath lives and breathes. These are the repeat offenders, who prey upon the denying sheep to get what they want using fists, clubs, knives, or firearms to beat, rob, rape, or murder their chosen sheep. These are your basic nightmare scumbags who in short order can irrepairably destroy the world of a sheep.

The wolf embraces violence and uses it without regard to satisfy its needs. He has no hesitation to maim, cripple, or kill if it helps to satisfy his immediate cravings. If you choose to be a wolf you will find yourself constantly being hunted for your vicious attacks by the last member of Grossman's group, the 'sheepdogs.'
These are people he describes as having the 'gift of aggression'... able to meet violence with violence in order to protect society.

They have the rare ability to use force against the wolves but never the sheep. Any sheepdog that attacks the herd is put down fast.

   Most sheepdogs are found in the military and law enforcement  and often make the sheep uncomfortable because they remind them that the wolves are out there.

Sheepdogs are often targets of ridicule from the sheep that get uncomfortable seeing their weapons, or as Grossman writes, "They have fangs like the wolf and fur like the wolf and they are constantly looking for the opportunity to engage the wolf in battle... the very thing the sheep fear."

I definitely live the life of a sheepdog.First in my military life and now as a FEARS Ltd   R.M.A tactical trainer, I spend my time, along with my instructors, preparing people for battle with the wolves.

I have felt the scorn and discomfort from the sheep when I bring up the topic of asocial criminal violence.

Regular citizens have stepped up to be sheepdogs when necessary. Grossman cites the passengers on the United Airlines flight that rose up against the terrorists heading for Washington, DC during the 9/11 attacks.

Also we have the everyday heroes who fight the wolves when the professional sheepdogs are not there to fend off the wolves' merciless attempts to attack. They are those rare few who risk lifeand limb to thwart the muggers, rapists, and murderers who prey on our communities.

Those are the few among us I want to train. Because if you are going to take on the wolves , I want you to get the most out of the tool of violence when you chose to wield it on the bastards.

It's rare enough to find a sheepdog these days amongst the complacent sheep. When we do, we at FEARS Ltd.  make sure we arm you to the teeth with the most effective methods and principles to prey on the predators. 
  Are you a Sheep, Wolf, or Sheepdog?

I see the horror in their eyes when I show simple, brutally effective measures to deal with even the most dangerous wolf. They are often repulsed by the very idea of the sheepdog.

Now, if you choose to be a sheep that is your choice. But as the article notes, that means you and your loved ones may very well die if there is no sheepdog around to handle the wolf.

It doesn't have to be that way!
