    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    The Mercop!

    As much as I'd like to say this is about a mermaid cop writing tickets to all the little fishies, I am saddened to say... it's just more bullshido.

    http://www.mercop.com/

    Or is it? He makes some good statements ("The only two places you want to be if someone spontaneously pulls a blade is 100 yards away or right on top of them.") but follows it up with weaksauce crap ("We need to be like the cat, always vigilant, and have total lack of hesitation when attacked.").

    I honestly don't know what to think here... The website just seems so damn bullshido but he's not a total dumbfuck.

    Grey area... making... head... hurt... :BangHead:

    Here's his bio:

    George “mercop” Matheis has over a decade of experience in civilian and military law enforcement.

    He currently serves with an agency in Maryland and is assigned to uniformed criminal patrol and SWAT.

    George’s core art is Yoshin Ryu Ju Jitsu and his main area of expertise and study is combat with the open hand, stick, knife and gun in an area the size of a parking space.

    George believes that all martial training should be compatible with the human response to stress and be based on common principles instead of individual techniques.

    The Mercharness is a revolutionary new way to carry your fixed blades concealed under nothing more that a t-shirt.
    It can be used with any knife that has a kydex sheath with eyelets.



    A law enforcement officer who would sell equipment designed to conceal weapons WTF?

    Why would a cop not sell equipment used to conceal weapons? A whole lot of people in the weapons/holster/sheath industry, especially customs, are cops. Most cops don't share your hangups about armed citizens who conceal their weapons--and some of the ones who do still design this equipment because police officers need it, too.

    This "Mercop" guy used to troll gun forums. As near as I can tell, that nickname is self-bestowed by a legend in his own mind.

    But you can't hug a child with legally concealed arms.
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    Actually I don't want to be near a child who has legally concealed arms.

    Cute.


    Honestly I don't see anything too bad, but after reading this I wouldn't want to piss him off during a traffic stop...

    Some people kid themselves and say that if attacked you will do whatever you have to and then run away. That is BULLSHIT. Some scumbag just tried to jack you and you thwarted it. He is now lying at your feet, at your mercy. You are going to walk away...not. Would you rather cut him again or hit him with a stick? Which would you want to defend in court?

    Imagine someone taking a stick and just smacking the back of your hands or the ball of your ankle.
