Be Cool, Y'all

Iaman sent me a video full of advice on not saying anything if you are ever questioned by the police. It's well meaning but essentially useless. Something you saw in a video umpteen years ago is going to have negligible effect on you compared to the immediacy of the copper in your face.

There are self-defense courses where you can learn how to defend yourself against a physical attack. I'm thinking we need some self-defense classes to teach people how to defend themselves against a verbal attack without getting arrested. These classes would need to have simulation scenarios (play-acting) which will give you some idea of what it would be like, and hopefully condition you enough that you can stay calm and say what you should say. This is something they should teach you in high school.
